Rangers are interested in signing Coventry City midfielder Gustavo Hamer but face competition from Norwich City, Brentford and Brighton, according to Football League World.

It’s not the first time the Gers have been linked with the Sky Blues star.

Back in January, the Press Association claimed that he was on the club’s radar [FourFourTwo].

Rangers were quick to play down the link at that time [Scottish Sun] but in a fresh report, Football League World have listed the Gers alongside Norwich City, Brentford and Brighton as a club with interest in a summer swoop.

Hamer is a holding midfielder who was born in Brazil and raised in the Netherlands, coming through the Feyenoord youth academy.

 

He joined Coventry from PEC Zwolle in July 2020 for a fee in the region of £1.5m [BBC Sport] and has played regularly for the Championship club since then, racking up 43 appearances this season, scoring five goals and notching three assists.

The 23-year-old is under contract until 2023, but the report suggests that Coventry may well be willing to cash in on him this summer if the right bid is tabled.

Hamer has received rave reviews from fans during his time in England and was described as ‘unbelievable’ by teammate Marko Marosi back in August 2020 [Coventry Telegraph].

Rangers will need to strengthen in midfield this summer despite the imminent arrival of Nnamdi Ofoborh from Bournemouth, as Bongani Zungu is heading back to parent club Amiens and Ryan Jack continues to struggle with injuries.

In other news, a high-quality Rangers player has reportedly made a decision on his future.
