Why Renato Tapia to Rangers would bolster their midfield
According to Glasgow Live, Rangers are interested in signing Feyenoord midfielder Renato Tapia in the summer. The player’s father has confirmed that confirmed the club’s interest in the midfielder.
Tapia, 24, came through the ranks of FC Twente’s youth system and moved to Feyenoord in the summer of 2016. After initially struggling to get regular game time, a loan spell with Willem II helped him integrate into the team’s senior squad.
With his contract coming to an end with the Dutch side this summer, Rangers should make a move for him. He has featured in 15 games for his side this term in the Eredivisie and has been one of the best players in the team. He has also made 53 appearances for Peru at the international level and has the best years ahead of him.
Tapia could bring stability to Rangers’ midfield
Rangers have a plethora of attack-minded midfielders in their squad. But when it comes to defensive midfielders who can sit deep and construct their games from a deeper position, Glen Kamara is the only main option available.
Andy Halliday is nearing the back end of his career and could be on his way out of the club as his contract expires at the end of this season. Thus, signing Tapia would be a massive boost for the Old Firm club.
The Peruvian has been in fine form for club and country in recent times and could be a perfect replacement for Halliday. And if the Gers sign him, they would have two young defensive midfielders for the future.

Rangers are in dire need of defensive midfielders, with Halliday set to move away from Ibrox. And Kamara has not been at his best too. Thus, signing Tapia would be a wise decision by the club. He has a huge future ahead of him and could be a key member for the Gers in the future.
