Former Finland boss Mixu Paatelainen has said that Glasgow Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara could make a big money move next summer if he does well at the European Championship with Finland.
The 24-year-old ‘Gers man helped his country qualify for their first major tournament and impressed once again against the Republic of Ireland at the weekend, as many the Ibrox outfit’s supporters were quick to praise his display. The Euros offer a platform for players to put themselves in the shop window and Kamara has the chance to do just that.
Speaking to The Scottish Sun, Paatelainen said that a big move could be on the cards for Kamara. He explained:
“Obviously with him being a very technical player who was at Arsenal at the time he got a very good grounding.
“He was still quite young and developing then but now he is one of the main men in midfield and does a very good job for Finland.
“In particular he is a tremendous passer of a ball and his technique his superb.
“He is always looking to get on the ball and play as a low playmaker if you like.
“It is difficult to put figures on anybody’s forehead.
“But players like that are highly valued so I wouldn’t be surprised if ANYTHING happened for him if he does well at the Euros.”
Currently valued at £1.08m by Transfermarkt, Kamara has featured in all but one game for Steven Gerrard’s side so far this term and has even reportedly been the subject of interest from Marseille, with France Football saying he could cost as much as £9m. If he performs well next summer, he could depart for an even greater sum
Is Glen Kamara underrated?
Prior to that tournament, he has a big role to play in helping the ‘Gers to try and win their first major trophy since 2011. If he can aid that cause, the ‘Gers will likely be more willing to let him depart if a big opportunity arises.
