Rangers: Abdou Harroui could be Gerrard’s Kamara replacement

Rangers have been linked with Sparta Rotterdam ace Abdou Harroui recently and the Dutch under-21 international could be the man to replace Glen Kamara at Ibrox.

What’s the word?

According to Football Insider, Rangers are showing interest in the 23-year-old after sending some of their scouts to watch him play for the Netherlands at the European Under-21 Championship.

The report suggests that Gerrard is in the market for midfield reinforcements ahead of next season and could be tempted by the Sparta Rotterdam midfielder, who was a mainstay in the Eredivisie last term.

The replacement for Glen Kamara?

Kamara played a significant part in Rangers’ title win last season and has unsurprisingly caught attention from the Premier League as a result, with his former employers Arsenal one of the clubs said to be interested in signing him ahead of the 2021/22 campaign.

If the Finland international were to depart Ibrox this summer, it would leave Gerrard short of midfield options, especially when you consider that veterans Steven Davis and Scott Arfield are still expected to play a key role, so they arguably need some more options for the future.

The £3.15m-rated Harroui could prove to be an excellent long-term investment by the Gers as he was impressive in the Dutch top flight last season, contributing six goals and three assists in 32 league appearances.

He was also superb in the 2019/20 campaign, contributing four goals and eight assists in just 26 Eredivisie appearances, which helped him average an impressive 7.33 rating from WhoScored for his performances.

Harroui is comfortable playing in central midfield, defensive midfield and on the right wing, so he could be a hugely versatile option for Gerrard at Ibrox next season, which suggests that he is exactly the sort of player the manager would love to have in his squad.

Rangers arguably lack goalscoring midfielders in their squad, so Harroui could also add more of a threat in that sense. Ross Wilson should definitely consider a move for the Sparta Rotterdam youngster, even if it means that Kamara ends up departing.
