In a recent interview, Frank McAvennie discussed the future of Glasgow Rangers central-midfielder, Glen Kamara, amid reports of interest in a move for the Gers man this summer.
Since joining Rangers from Dundee in what was a £50,000 deal back in January of 2019, Kamara has gone on to prove himself as something of an inspired piece of business for the Ibrox club, with the 25-year-old so far making 100 appearances for Gers, chipping in with four goals and providing five assists along the way.
This season, the Finland international has been a crucial part of Steven Gerrard’s title-winning side, featuring in all but five of the club’s top-flight fixtures, with his performances reportedly catching the eye of clubs such as Arsenal, Leeds United, Everton, Southampton, Monaco, Lille and Borussia Dortmund, all of whom are thought to be considering a move for the defensive midfielder this summer.
However, speaking recently to Football Insider, Frank McAvennie stated his belief that, despite impressing for Gers this season, Kamara may struggle in a Premier League side.
He said: “He was a great bit of business from Rangers. Kamara’s worked wonders but I think he’ll struggle to make it in a Premier League team, especially at Leeds where they play great football, I’m not sure. That’s a pretty big ask.
“Kamara’s done really well this year, I think he’s a really good player. What I’ve seen of him this year he’s done really well. But if he moves to the Premier League, good luck to him.”
Do you think Kamara will leave this summer?
Transfer Tavern Take
With Gerrard stating back in 2019 that Kamara had been “outstanding” for Rangers since his move to Ibrox, an opinion that would not appear to have changed considering how often the manager selects the 25-year-old, it would seem highly unlikely that the 40-year-old would be willing to part with the midfielder this summer – something that is evident in Gers’ reported £10 million asking price.
However, if Kamara does go on to make a switch to the Premier League this summer, considering how important the midfielder has become for Gers, we would not bet against him having a similar impact within a new side, despite McAvennie’s reservations.
