Rangers love Heerenveen midfielder Joey Veerman, but they face competition from Atalanta, Stade Reims, Ajax, PSV Eindhoven and Southampton for his signing, according to The Scottish Sun.
The £ 5million youngster has scored seven goals and added nine assists in 28 Eredivisie appearances this season, while he has also scored twice in three KNVB Cup appearances.
Veerman’s gaming abilities have caught the attention of Rangers and others, and he could be available this summer.
Heerenveen are still a mid-table team in the Dutch top flight, and the opportunity to play in Europe could see him choosing to move to Ibrox before next season.
Veerman will also be guaranteed consistent playing time at Rangers compared to his other contenders, and it’s a signing capable of improving Steven Gerrard’s side.
The Light Blues want to win the Premiership title again next season after facing perennial rivals Celtic this season, and they will need to strengthen their squad over the summer.
While the Rangers aren’t looking to spend much in the transfer window given their tight budget, they might have more money to spend if they decide to cash in some of their valuable assets.
Ianis Hagi, Alfredo Morelos and Ryan Kent all have suitors across Europe, and there’s no guarantee they’ll all be at Ibrox at the end of the summer transfer window.
Veerman can play in a variety of midfield roles and Rangers could sign the next big step in Dutch football if they pursue him.
