In a recent interview, Alan Hutton discussed the interest in Glasgow Rangers centre-midfielder, Glen Kamara, ahead of the summer transfer window.
Having been an integral part of Steven Gerrard’s title-winning side this season, with the 25-year-old missing just five Scottish Premiership games over the course of Gers’ campaign, the Rangers manager recently admitted that he is working hard on attempting to tie Kamara down to a new deal at the club.
Speaking to Rangers TV, Gerrard said: “Glen is someone who we are still trying and talking to commit here as he is a big player for us. There are a lot of players we are working with to try and get them tied up here as they are so important for the team moving forward.”
However, in an interview with Football Insider, Hutton claimed that Gerrard’s comments regarding Kamara’s contract did not fill him with confidence, as well as discussing the amount of interest that the midfielder is likely to receive in the upcoming transfer window.
He said: “Those kind of words, it doesn’t sound great. I mean, obviously, there are other clubs that are looking at him. That’s only going to happen when a player such as himself plays at such a high standard week in, week out. I think there’s more to come, I think he can get better.”
Do you think Kamara will leave this summer?
Transfer Tavern Take
Indeed, as Hutton points out, there have been reports of significant interest in Kamara’s services this summer, with the Daily Mail claiming that Brighton & Hove Albion, Southampton, Burnley, Leeds United and Watford are all keeping a very close eye on the midfielder.
As such, despite the fact that the Finland international has until the summer of 2023 left on his contract at Ibrox, it would indeed appear a wise move for Rangers to tie him down to a new deal as soon as possible, which would then allow the club in order to demand a higher transfer fee for the £4.05 million-rated man, which could potentially put a number of clubs off a move.
