According to the latest reports from Daily Mail, Engish clubs Brighton and Crystal Palace are monitoring Rangers midfielder, Glen Kamara. It is believed that the scouts are giving favourable reports about him especially after his performance against Porto in the Europa League.

Gerrard’s Rolls Royce

Rangers managed to sign Kamara for a bargain fee of £50,000 in January earlier this year. The midfielder soon became the mainstay in the middle in the second half of the last season. Steven Gerrard even called him ‘Rolls Royce’ because of the ease with which he was dominating the midfield battle.

However, the Finland international had an indifferent start to this season, and he struggled for form in the opening month. He wasn’t poor or shambolic, but he seemed to be well behind the pace of the game. Now he has seemingly got back his form, but he still needs to bring in a bit more consistency.

Kamara managed to represent Arsenal’s senior team when he was just 19 but he never really managed to make a proper breakthrough. He impressed for Dundee and then Rangers were able to sign him this January. For the price, he has been nothing sort of a bargain.

What should be Gerrard’s play?

If there is an offer of £3-4m from the English clubs, then Rangers might be tempted to sell him in the future. Moreover, midfield is one area where the Gers have plenty of options and cover. Steven Davis and Ryan Jack have emerged as the mainstay in the middle, and the other midfield spot is seemingly up for grabs. Joe Aribo, Scott Arfield and Andy King can currently play in that role. Rangers will also get back Ross McCrorie next season who is currently on loan with Portsmouth. So even if Kamara goes on to leave by next summer, the Gers have plausible options who can start in the middle.

We think that Gerrard is unlikely to sell him in January given that we are in for a tight title race. However, an offer upwards of £2m could tempt the Gers as they will stand to make a massive profit on him after signing him for just £50,000.

It remains to be seen what kind of offer the English clubs would come with for the Finland international. Kamara has his contract at the club until 2023, so the Gers should be in an excellent position to negotiate the best price for him. Ideally, Gerrard should keep him for this season and if the opportunity arises, then sell him in the summer for £3-4m.
