Rangers have already agreed on a pre-contract agreement with Dundee midfielder Glen Kamara but reports (The Scottish Sun) from last few days have been doing rounds that the Dee could look to sell him this month so that they can gain some financial benefit from the move. The midfielder is in the last six months of his contract, and therefore Dundee would not make any money from this deal if Kamara goes on to join Rangers in the summer.
Dundee manager Jim McIntyre though gave a clear indication that they are looking to sell him in the next few days and the midfielder too wants a move to Ibrox. He was quoted as saying (Sky Sports), ”I think when a player signs a pre-contract nine times out of 10 he would rather move on – everybody is aware of that. Discussions are ongoing, we will see where it leads.”
Rangers are trying to beef up in every department by adding reinforcements to the squad. They have already secured the signature of Steven Davis who is going to add experience and creativity in midfield. Also, Kamara’s move looks very much on the cards right now as everyone involved are willing to go through with the transfer.
The Finnish international is strong and robust in his challenges and can play in various roles in midfield when required. The former Arsenal midfielder can sit back and play as a defensive midfielder or in a more box to box role.
The signing of Kamara isn’t a good sign for Lassana Coulibaly, and we would not be wrong in assuming that the Gers won’t make a permanent move for him after his deal expires in the summer. To be fair, the form of the Malian international has been dismal for the last few months.
Rangers should bring in a creative midfielder now as they have often struggled to carve open defences when the opposition has sat back and defended in numbers. Kamara has played occasionally in a slightly attacking role for Dundee but with mixed results. Therefore he doesn’t seem to be that creative spark in midfield.
Ex Dundee boss Neil McCann has claimed that Kamara has shades of Patrick Vieira in him and we would also like to say that there is an uncanny resemblance between the two former Arsenal midfielders and both are in a similar mould as players. The 23-year-old will be a decent addition this month, and he can play that deeper role in midfield to perfection for the Bears.
