Coventry City have agreed a €2m (£1.81m) transfer fee for PEC Zwolle midfielder Gustavo Hamer, according to Coventry Live.
Sky Blues manager Mark Robins will look to strengthen his squad this summer ahead of a return to the Championship after gaining promotion from League One.
With the summer transfer window fast approaching, Hamer now looks set to move to Coventry.
The 23-year-old midfielder plays in a defensive midfield role and racked up 25 appearances this term before the Dutch season was ended due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The Dutch under-20 international, who was born in Brazil, was reportedly set for a medical next month with the Midlands side and that seems to now be set in stone after a transfer fee is said to have been agreed by all parties.
Hamer will be seen as a direct replacement for Liam Walsh, who will return to parent club Bristol City this summer.
This seems like a tremendous coup from Coventry. It looks increasingly likely that Walsh will return to Bristol City after impressing on loan with the club and to find a replacement already sets up Robins perfectly for the summer transfer window.
Hamer will have to be given time to adjust to English football but, if his form in Holland is anything to by, Coventry may have a really good player on their hands.
Do you think Hamer can replace Liam Walsh? Let us know in the comments section below…
