Rangers: French club ‘lining up’ Glen Kamara bid

Rangers: French club ‘lining up’ Glen Kamara bid -Rangers News

Glasgow Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara is reportedly being eyed up for a transfer away from Ibrox, according to 90min

The lowdown: Kamara omitted

The 26-year-old has been the subject of interest from numerous clubs this summer, and despite remaining a key part of Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s plans, a move away could still be on the cards.

The Finland international had previously been courted by Nottingham Forest and Aston Villa during this summer’s transfer window, but it now appears that a suitor from mainland Europe is in town.

Having been left out of Rangers’ matchday squad for the 2-2 draw against Hibernian on Saturday, it has emerged that there is strong interest from France in acquiring Kamara’s services…

The latest: Nice ‘lining up’ Kamara bid

As per 90min, Ligue 1 club Nice are believed to be ‘lining up a bid’ to sign the 46-cap midfielder.

It’s claimed that Kamara was left out by Van Bronckhorst ‘because of the ongoing uncertainty surrounding his future’ amidst the latest transfer interest.

The report also cites ‘two bids’ from Galatasaray earlier in the summer but makes no mention of the details of the potentially incoming offer from France for the man who was dubbed ‘fantastic’ by former Ibrox manager Steven Gerrard.

The verdict: No deal

Having already allowed Joe Aribo and Calvin Bassey to leave this summer, the Gers cannot afford to lose another key component of their squad in such a short period of time.

One way that this exit could become more palatable is if the heavily linked Darius Olaru were to arrive at Ibrox and bolster the Rangers ranks in pursuit of the Premiership title.

Last season, Kamara scored four times and provided five assists in a mammoth 52 appearances across all competitions, highlighting his importance to the team. Only four outfield players were given more Premiership minutes for Rangers in 2021/22, which shows how much of a stalwart the Finn has been in Glasgow.

Valued at £6.75m and under contract until 2025 (Transfermarkt), the Rangers hierarchy are in a position of strength when it comes to deciding the future of their midfielder, but should his departure become inevitable, the priority will be to get the highest possible fee for such a crucial asset.
