In a recent report, The Daily Record stated that Aston Villa could reignite their interest in Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara. It has been claimed that the Villans have monitored the Tampere-born midfield ace over the past couple of windows and are now set to rekindle their efforts to sign him following the appointment of Steven Gerrard as the new manager at Villa Park.
Kamara’s Impressive Run Of Form In Scottish Football
Kamara has made a solid start to this season after producing some impressive displays at the heart of Rangers’ midfield. The Finnish talent has featured in 17 matches for the Glaswegian side in this campaign so far, scoring one goal and grabbing two assists on all fronts.
The 26-year-old has kept himself busy by averaging 0.9 tackles, 0.9 interceptions, 0.5 clearances, 0.5 shots, 1.3 key passes and 1.0 dribbles per 90 minutes in the Scottish Premiership. He has even distributed the ball really well from midfield based on his pass success rate of 90% in league football (stats via whoscored).
Is Kamara A Good Option For Aston Villa?
Kamara is a moderately-paced midfielder who can make some promising runs with the ball in the opposition half. He can also create some decent plays for others around him and can use his robust 1.83m frame to dominate the game at the centre of the park.
The Finnish midfield ace is proficient at getting stuck in with a few solid tackles to make life difficult for the opposition in midfield. Moreover, he can keep the ball moving effortlessly which made him such an integral component of Steven Gerrard’s midfield during their time together at the Ibrox Stadium.
We can expect Kamara to add a lot of bite and steel to Aston Villa‘s midfield. He could even go on to form a decent midfield partnership with John McGinn at Villa Park over the next few seasons. Gerrard has already shown that he can unlock the best out of the Finnish midfielder which will only bode well for the Villans in the long run. At 26, Kamara will be an ideal option for the West Midlands club as he is about to enter his peak and would get better with each year.
