Rangers want to sign Coventry's Gustavo Hamer
Rangers are interested in signing Coventry midfielder Gustavo Hamer, according to Football League World.
The Gers were linked with the 23-year-old in January [Press Association] but a move never came to fruition, and Norwich, Brentford and Brighton are now reportedly keen on the Brazilian.
Hamer signed for Coventry last summer and helped them achieve safety in the English Championship this term, with five goals and two assists.
He has impressed his manager Mark Robins, who described Hamer as an “absolute genius” after a game against Wycombe this season [Coventry Telegraph].
Another EFL prospect
Ross Wilson and Steven Gerrard agreed deals with EFL pair Jack Simpson and Nnamdi Ofoborh in January and it seems they view the league as a place to find young talent.
Hamer has clearly impressed at Coventry and he could fit in at Ibrox due to the balance he brings to midfield.
Five goals shows Hamer can pose an attacking threat, as does his return of 1.5 key passes per game, per WhoScored.
Also, he has made 1.4 tackles and 1.4 interceptions per game so would suit the role that Glen Kamara plays.
The Finnish midfielder is being eyed by Arsenal [Give Me Sport] so it is possible Hamer is being looked at as a potential replacement for the 25-year-old.
Hamer still has areas of his game to improve before he reaches Kamara’s level, though, as he has achieved just 73% pass accuracy this year.
We are confident Hamer could learn quickly however, particularly as Gerrard and Steven Davis will be able to nurture the midfielder.
Hamer joining would be an exciting transfer and if the finances are right we are keen for the club to complete a deal.
In other Rangers news, a Rangers loanee could be set for humiliation tomorrow as he fights for his Ibrox future.
