Rangers Announce Signing of Sam Lammers

RANGERS Football Club are today delighted to announce the signing of Sam Lammers from Atalanta, subject to international clearance on a four year deal.

The Dutch attacker becomes Michael Beale’s fourth signing this summer, following the arrivals of Kieran Dowell, Dujon Sterling and Jack Butland. 

During his time in Holland, Germany and Italy, the striker gained valuable experience playing in the Eredivisie, Bundesliga and Serie A. A product of PSV’s Academy, Lammers made the move to Atalanta in 2020, with loan spells at Eintracht Frankfurt, Empoli and Sampdoria.

A versatile forward player, Lammers will further complement the existing attacking talent already in-place at the club.

Speaking after joining Rangers, Lammers said: “I am really excited to join Rangers, my first impressions have all been good so I am even more excited for the season to start now. 

“I came in contact with the manager and he came over to see me in Italy, we had a good talk and he gave me a presentation about the club and about how I could fit in so ever since that moment I was excited for this project and to get here.

Manager Michael Beale commented: “Sam is a player I have been aware of for a number of years. I first knew him as a young player at PSV and have followed his career closely from afar and he excelled in Holland both in the Eredivisie and the under-21 national team. 

“Sam will give us great technical and tactical quality, being able to play in a variety of attacking positions as a number 10 or nine. He was the first player I met with as part of the planning for the new season and during our lengthy discussions, it was clear that we share the same ideas on football and on his personal development moving forward. He has a strong alignment to the other players in our squad. 

On recruitment as a whole so far this close-season, the manager continued: “I am delighted with our progress so far in this summer transfer window. We have worked extremely well to recruit Jack Butland, Dujon Sterling, Kieran Dowell and Sam Lammers. We are ahead of schedule in our plans. 

“The coming weeks will see more trading both in and out of the squad as we prepare for the season ahead. We have key areas of focus and we are close to securing our targets in those positions.”
