Rangers have been backed to sign Nimes Olympique ace Zinedine Ferhat this summer, as the Algerian could be a superb option for Steven Gerrard to have at Ibrox.
In an exclusive interview with The Transfer Tavern, French football pundit Adam White shared his views on the winger, who has been regularly linked with a move to Rangers throughout the summer transfer window.
“He’s a player I really like and he’s been great for Nimes.
“He’s a technically-gifted player who drifts in from the flank and creates. He’s good for the odd goal and from set-pieces.
“If Rangers were to get him it would be a coup, to be honest.”
Ferhat was extremely impressive in a Nimes side that were relegated from Ligue 1 last season, which suggests that he could be even more dangerous in a side such as Rangers who are likely to dominate the majority of their games next season.
The 28-year-old would contribute a superb six goals and 10 assists in 33 appearances in the French top-flight, averaging an excellent 7.21 rating from WhoScored for his performances.
This was more goal contributions than the likes of Joe Aribo, Ianis Hagi and Ryan Kent in the Scottish Premiership last season, in an arguably much more competitive league, so it is easy to see why White is tipping Ferhat to be a transfer coup for Rangers this summer.
Although they have already added another attacker in the shape of Fashion Sakala to their squad this summer, Gerrard will surely still be looking to add players with Champions League quality to his squad, and given that Ferhat managed more assists than the likes of Neymar and Angel Di Maria in Ligue 1 last season, he is the ideal man for Ross Wilson to sign.
He should look to get a deal done.
