Rangers: Gers ‘plan to keep’ Glen Kamara at Ibrox in January
Transfer expert Dean Jones has shared that Glasgow Rangers ‘plan to keep’ Glen Kamara in the January window, despite reports linking him with a move.
The Lowdown: Nantes interest
As per reports in France (via The Daily Record), Ligue 1 side Nantes have Kamara as their number one transfer target for the January window, and are prepared to pay up to £6m to sign the central midfielder.
However, Michael Beale has claimed that Kamara will be a ‘big player’ for the club moving forward, and was ‘hugely important’ for him during his first spell.
The Latest: Kamara staying put…
Speaking to GiveMeSport, Jones has shared that the Gers ‘plan to keep’ Kamara during the January window, and that he is a player ‘Beale really likes’:
“Rangers plan to keep Glen Kamara for now and aren’t actually expecting too much interest in him in January from what I’ve been told. Beale really likes him and would probably look to utilise him while he gets things settled.”
The Verdict: Worth keeping
Kamara is certainly worth keeping around as a squad player, and the fact that Beale has a good relationship with him should see the Finland international thrive under his management.
He has made eight appearances in the Scottish Premiership so far this season, and boasts one of the best passing accuracy rates (85.3%) in the squad (WhoScored), which coupled up with his team-high 91.1% pass accuracy from players who played at least one match in the last campaign, shows how important he is in terms of keeping possession and moving the ball around the pitch.
Nonetheless, Kamara is still just 27 years of age and about to enter his prime, which the Light Blues will surely not want to miss out on.
