Rangers have been heavily linked with a move for Coventry City midfielder Gustavo Hamer in recent weeks, and Steven Gerrard’s hopes of bringing him to Ibrox appear to have been handed a significant boost after the Sky Blues revealed that they would consider his sale this summer.
Rangers were first linked with a move for the Dutch midfielder by Football League World last week, with Norwich City, Brighton and Brentford also touted with an interest.
Since joining from the Eredivisie club, Hamer has gone on to make 44 appearances for Coventry, in which he has contributed five goals and three assists, helping them to a comfortable 16th-placed finish in the Championship following their promotion from League One last season.
Robins has already tipped Hamer to move to the Premier League in the future and praised his “frightening” technique earlier in the season and it looks increasingly likely that he will earn a move away from Coventry this summer.
Ross Wilson should definitely be looking at the 23-year-old midfielder as an option for Gerrard’s side ahead of next season, as he could provide something different in Rangers’ midfield, and perhaps the offer of Champions League football could be enough to convince him to head north.
Hamer has averaged 1.8 shots and 1.5 key passes per game for Coventry in the English Championship this season, which is more than any Rangers midfielder has averaged in the Premiership, suggesting that he could be a real attacking and creative force in Gerrard’s side next season should he make the move to Ibrox.
The £1.8m-rated midfielder still has two years left on his contract with Coventry but it seems as if the Sky Blues are resigned to seeing him leave, suggesting that he could be a relatively cheap option for the Gers, so Wilson should do all he can to sign him following this latest update on his future.
