According to The Scottish Sun, Rangers may be able to sign midfielder Glen Kamara from Dundee this month.
The Finland international was due to join the Scottish giants in the summer after signing a pre-contract agreement, however, he could move to Ibrox this January for a fee.
The former Arsenal academy product will add a lot of creativity to Rangers from the defensive midfield position, which will surely aid Steven Gerrard’s men in becoming more fruitful in front of goal. While the 23-year-old will be a great addition to the squad in the summer, it is of huge importance that he joins as soon as possible, particularly in light of whom else The Gers have signed this season.
Rangers have already seen Jermain Defoe and Steven Davis arrive at Ibrox this January, two great signings that will help for their push to break bitter rivals Celtic’s dominance of the Scottish Premiership. However, England international Defoe is 36, while Northern Ireland international Davis is 34. Neither are signings for the future, rather recruitments to boost The Gers’ fortunes immediately. If these two arrive alongside a promising youngster like Kamara, it gives a completely different complexion to Rangers’ transfer approach.
No longer would Gerrard’s team look like one that is so hell-bent on achieving silverware this season that they do not pay attention to the future. There would be a synthesis of planning for their short-term and long-term future, which will benefit Rangers far more than a furious attempt at the Scottish Premiership this season.
