Rangers are reportedly eyeing a move for Coventry City midfielder Gustavo Hamer [Glasgow Times via PA].

Hamer joined Coventry in June 2020 from Eredivisie club PEC Zwolle for a fee in the region of €1.5m (£1.3m) [Coventry Live].

He started a pre-season friendly against the Gers at Ibrox a month later and has since made 21 competitive appearances for the Sky Blues.

Hamer has shown an eye for goal in the Championship, scoring four times so far this season, with his most recent strike coming in a 2-1 win at Millwall earlier this month.

It’s suggested that Coventry will be looking to hold onto the 23-year-old in this window, but that they will face a battle to do so beyond that, with Rangers regarding him as a player for the future.

 

In an update to their initial report, though, the Glasgow Times stated that an Ibrox spokesman has denied transfer interest in the player, who is contracted until 2023.

Rangers currently have six established central midfielders at the club in Ryan Jack, Steven Davis, Scott Arfield, Glen Kamara, Joe Aribo and Bongani Zungu.

However, Davis’ current deal expires at the end of the season, while Zungu is only on loan from Amiens and Kamara has been the subject of considerable transfer speculation.

Therefore, it’s very possible that the Gers are looking to recruit in that area ahead of next season, with John Lundstram and Kenny McLean other midfielders who have also recently linked with moves to Ibrox.

Rangers are also said to be monitoring several young strikers, one of whom recently scored in a win over Borussia Dortmund.
