you can use a local variable like -
<c:url value="test/client(link)${requestScope.variable}" var="vlaUrl" />

c:url is jstl tag.

you can use it as follows
<display:column title="Try" sortable="true" headerClass="columnheader" sortProperty="try">
<a href="${vlaUrl}">Click</a>

Hope this should work. revert if you have any problem while implementing the same.
