According to Voetbal International, Glasgow Rangers are interested in bringing Heerenveen midfielder Joey Veerman to Ibrox.
Gers eye Veerman
Veerman is said to be almost certain to leave his current club this summer, and the Gers are believed to be interested in taking the 22-year-old off the Eredivisie outfit’s hands.
They are not the only side in pursuit, though. Stade Reims and Atalanta were also mentioned in connection with the midfielder.
With the likes of Champions League chasers Atalanta to contend with, the Gers signing Veerman would clearly be a major coup. This term, he has managed nine goals and 10 assists in 32 games in all competitions, taking his career goalscoring tally to 31 (Transfermarkt).
Would you like to sign Veerman?
Veerman is clearly a player with plenty of talent and would therefore be a fantastic signing for the 55-time Scottish champions – their only issue may be the fee Heerenveen demand. He is currently valued at £6.3m (Transfermarkt) and has a contract that runs until 2024. While Veerman may want to leave, the club themselves are in no need to sell, so the Gers would need to part with a substantial sum to capture him. Whether they would be comfortable with such an outlay remains to be seen.
In other news, Glasgow Rangers fans are livid at this news.
