Rangers signed Glen Kamara from Dundee in January at a bargain price, and he slotted in well in midfield at the Ibrox. The midfielder made a positive impact and played a considerable part in Rangers’ good run at the end of the season. His ability to control and dictate the game was applauded and everyone associated with Rangers was raving about his performance.
However, after just a few months, Rangers can lose him as Kamara has caught the eye of Premier League club, Brighton. The English club is said to be interested (The Express) but no bids have been made yet. Rangers stand a chance of landing a massive profit in a few months if the bid comes in, but the Bears also must stop Celtic from making it nine titles in a row next season. For that to happen, the Gers would need to retain their best players and add to that in the summer.
Kamara on transfer speculations
Kamara recently opened up about the speculations, and he clearly mentioned that a move to the Premier League is his dream. He was quoted as saying, “Rumours are part of football. But nothing concrete has happened, it is just speculation. Yes, it would be a dream to play in the Premier League, but for the moment I am happy to play for Rangers.”
“It was a tough season, and I had to prove myself at Rangers. I have developed a lot mentally. It’s a big challenge to play in front of the fans at Rangers. They have high demands, but I like that. I’ve really enjoyed playing for Rangers. And getting praise from a manager like Steven Gerrard feels really good.”
The midfielder might be praising Rangers, but it seems like the former Arsenal player’s head could turn if an offer from a Premier League club comes his way.
Why has Kamara been so effective?
The midfielder has looked at ease, and his ability to carry the ball and pick the right pass seems second to none. He was quite clearly the best midfielder for the Gers when on a song. His physical strength made it tough for the opponents to dispossess him, and he hardly gave away the ball during the game. Kamara seemed relatively calm even under pressure from opponents. For that reason, Gerrard claimed that the midfielder looked like a ”Rolls Royce” in the middle of the park and he surely would have a massive role to play at the club next season.
What should Gerrard do?
Ideally, the Gers should keep him, but Gerrard did make it clear that every player has his price. If Brighton makes an offer which is too good to refuse, then the 23-year-old could leave Rangers after playing for just a few months at Ibrox.
