Rangers “remain keen” on £4m-rated Brazilian midfielder Gustavo Hamer, who currently plies his trade with Coventry City in the English Championship.
That’s according to Give Me Sport, who also claim that the Gers are open to selling both striker Alfredo Morelos and attacking midfielder Ianis Hagi to fund any new transfer moves.
Hamer, 24, has been routinely linked to Ibrox throughout the entirety of 2021 and was even said to be a target in the January transfer window.
Those links were rubbished by club insiders at the time but as of this summer, the ex-Zwolle midfielder has found himself once again mentioned alongside Steven Gerrard’s side.
EFL Hub – a Twitter account with 15k followers – claimed that the Gers had met Coventry’s £4m valuation for the player in May.
However, as things stand there has been no official movement on this and the player remains with the Sky Blues.
A defensive midfielder with an energetic style and eye for goal, plenty may well think that Hamer could be a more expensive version of free contract signing John Lundstram.
Or even a potential replacement for in-demand Finnish international Glen Kamara.
However, Give Me Sport believe it is Alfredo Morelos – who has been extensively linked to FC Porto – and Ianis Hagi – who’s been linked to the likes of Sevilla – who could be sold this window.
The Gers are clear that player trading must form part of the club’s business model going forward with both Alfie and Ianis prime assets but we like to take all these reports with a pinch of salt.
As we seen in Steven Gerrard’s recent comments regarding Morelos, the Ibrox club are pulling no punches when it comes to interest being drummed up by different parties in the press.
