Rangers are hoping to fend off interest from Leeds United for midfielder Glen Kamara by demanding a big transfer fee for him, that is according to a report from The Herald.
The Scottish giants are thought to be wanting a figure of £8m from the Whites if they are to let him move to Elland Road.
Kamara only joined Rangers last season, costing the Ibrox club just £50,000 from Dundee, meaning an £8m sale would bring in 160 times what they paid for him.
Should Leeds sign Helder Costa permanently?
His form has led to interest from England, with Championship promotion hopefuls Leeds United thought to be amongst those chasing his signature, according to The Herald.
However, with the Gers under no pressure to sell the Finland international, they are reportedly not willing to listen to any offers below £8 million for him.
With Leeds still a Championship club, it is hard to see them paying such a big fee for the player in January.
They do have aspirations of winning promotion to the Premier League this season under Marcelo Bielsa, but recruitment chief Victor Orta has recently admitted that they will be sensible with their money in the upcoming transfer window (Tuttomercatoweb via HITC).
Indeed, he told Tuttomercatoweb in a recent interview: “We have made a conservative line in the summer, we will do it in winter. The new ones need time, in January there are few options.”
That could open the door for other clubs to pip Leeds to the signing of Kamara, with AFC Bournemouth, Brighton & Hove Albion and Crystal Palace all thought to be interested in him, also per The Herald.
