Former Rangers defender Michael Ball believes that Heerenveen must drop the price tag of Joey Veerman.
Veerman has been linked with a move to Ibrox this summer, with the Scottish Sun reporting that the Dutchman has hit out at the club’s £8million valuation of him.
This is something which Ball agrees with, telling Transfer Tavern: “Unfortunately the big teams aren’t willing to pay that. They’ve got to drop it, Glasgow Rangers won’t be paying nine, ten million pounds, I don’t think they’ve got that money to pay for a young kid right now.”
22-year-old Veerman was in good form for Heerenveen last season, scoring nine goals and setting up another 11 in all competitions for the Eredivisie outfit.
The Dutchman also offers a lot of versatility as he can operate from defensive midfield, central midfield, left midfield and also further forward in an attacking midfield role, as per Transfermarkt.
Manager Steven Gerrard has already begun strengthening his team this summer, with Fashion Sakala, Nnamdi Ofoborh and John Ludstram all arriving at Ibrox, and after guiding Rangers to their first league title in a decade last season, Gerrard will be looking to get his recruitment spot on and ensure that Rangers are competing once again next season.
