Walter Smith is ready to step up his bid for Danny Koevermans, according to reports.
Rangers boss Walter Smith is ready to step up his bid to sign AZ Alkmaar forward Danny Koevermans, according to reports in Holland.
Smith was in attendance at DSB Stadion as AZ defeated Vitesse Arnhem 1-0 in the Eredivisie on Sunday.
Koevermans, who played the full 90 minutes against Vitesse, is thought to have been Smith's target, with The Gers having been linked with the player for a number of weeks.
Whether Louis van Gaal is willing to part with Koevermans remains to be seen, however.
The 28-year-old Dutchman has been one of the most prolific scorers in Holland over the years and has been in fine form once again this season, netting 18 goals in 23 league games.
