Rangers have been linked with Heerenveen midfielder Joey Veerman recently, and if he were to join Steven Gerrard’s side this summer, it could well be the catalyst for Glen Kamara to leave Ibrox.
According to Dutch news outlet Voetbal, Rangers are among several European clubs taking an interest in the 22-year-old, who has starred in the Eredivisie for the past two seasons.
Veerman appears to be an all-action midfielder in the mould of Kamara, and with the Finland international having been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League in recent weeks, perhaps the young Dutchman could arrive as his replacement.
So far this season, the Heerenveen midfielder has contributed an impressive seven goals and nine assists in 28 Eredivisie appearances, which has helped him earn a superb 7.47 average match rating from WhoScored.
He has contributed two tackles and 1.3 interceptions per game in the Eredivise, whereas Kamara has contributed one tackle and 0.9 interceptions per match in the Scottish Premiership, which again suggests that Veerman could definitely step up as his replacement.
Former Rangers man Michael Mols praised Veerman’s style of play in a recent interview, saying: “He’s a really good technical player and a good passer.”
Although Gerrard would undoubtedly want to have both players available to him next season, Kamara could well have his head turned by Premier League interest this summer and could be encouraged to leave should Veerman arrive as his direct competition in midfield.
Certainly, the Dutchman’s performances over the last two seasons suggest that he has a big future in the game and that he would be an excellent addition in Gerrard’s side, so Ross Wilson should definitely look to bring him to Ibrox this summer, even if it proves a factor in Kamara’s potential departure.
