As Rangers gear up for a Champions League Playoff against PSV Eindhoven, the Dutch club go into the tie against the backdrop of Joey Veerman, Ibrahim Sangare and Johan Bakayoko exit links.

It’s no surprise the talent strewn Eredivisie outfit have some of Europe’s top clubs and leagues tailing their talent and heading into this make or break European clash there is transfer talk aplenty.

Once Rangers-linked Joey Veerman played for PSV Eindhoven in last season’s Champions League Playoff clash and this summer he’s been linked with a move to Serie A.

Whilst reports have gone a little cold as of late, Lazio were mentioned as suitors this summer and the Serie A runners up will play in the Champions League this season.

Senegalese international Ibrahim Sangare appears to be one of the most highly-sought after players in Europe at the minute with several top clubs reportedly interested.

Premier League Liverpool have been mentioned by reputable sources as they tail a new midfielder, with Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich and Ligue 1 outfit PSG also linked to the £32m-rated star.

Finally, as Rangers ready the visit of PSV in the Champions League Playoff next week, form winger Johan Bakayoko is also being linked with a move to the Premier League.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Burnley hold genuine interest in the winger with several top clubs in Europe tailing the 20-year-old Belgian talent.

All three players will be hoping to play for PSV against Rangers in the Champions League Playoff and it is worth noting the substantial transfer interest around the Dutch club.

Last season, transfer sounds surrounded then PSV winger Cody Gakpo who moved to Liverpool last December after Rangers downed the club to reach the group stages.

That would suggest that the Dutch side will be waiting to see the outcome of their Champions League qualification campaign before making any big transfer calls.

But no matter what happens, this will be a huge test of Michael Beale’s new-look Rangers side who will need to be at their very best to reach the Champions League group stages.
