Ibrox View: Rangers must go all out to sign Joey Veerman

Rangers have been linked with a summer move for Heerenveen midfielder Joey Veerman, according to the Scottish Sun.

The newspaper have claimed that the Bears would have to pay £5million for one of the “hottest prospects” in Dutch football.

Veerman has already been scouted by Ibrox staff members and is also wanted by the likes of Atalanta and Stade Reims.

Veerman has been in sensational form this season.

The 22-year-old has scored goals and added nine assists in the Eredivisie in his scintillating breakthrough campaign.

Rangers are unwilling to shell out huge amounts of money over the summer, with some players expected to be shown the exit door.

With Ianis Hagi potentially leaving the club, Steven Gerrard could have more money to spend on players to strengthen his squad for the Champions League.

Problem fixed.

Midfield has been a real problem area this season, with injuries ravaging through the squad and the likes of Ryan Jack and Scott Arfield.

Derek Ferguson identified that in recent weeks, claiming that there is no one to replace that important duo, who can get forward as well as defending.

The 22-year-old also averages two tackles per game according to WhoScored, so he has proven he could be the perfect candidate to play alongside Glen Kamara and Steven Davis.

Gerrard clearly needs a player who can finish a season with his goal involvements in double figures, but also strengthen his side defensively, Veerman is that man.

The Bears have to go all out to sign the Dutch prospect, who has it all to succeed at Ibrox as we start our dominance in Scotland.
