According to a report by GiveMeSport, West Ham United have now made an approach to sign Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara as they get in touch with the player’s camp.
The Lowdown: West Ham eyeing midfield reinforcements?
Despite the general consensus being West Ham are prioritising a new striker, centre-back and permanent deal for Jesse Lingard (Claret & Hugh), that still hasn’t stopped the club from being linked to bolstering other positions.
One of these areas is central midfield and the Irons were even thought to be in advanced talks for Czech Republic international Alex Kral at one stage.
The Latest: West Ham make contact for Kamara…
As per GMS, West Ham are now one of the clubs interested in signing Gers ace Kamara after an impressive season in the SPFL.
It is said that the Irons have even ‘touched base’ with the player’s camp to find out about the kind of deal he’d be looking for this summer.
They are not the only club, with Everton, Brentford and numerous teams from the Russian Premier League all believed to have done the same thing.
The Verdict: Good option…
Gers boss Steven Gerrard also waxed lyrical over his contribution for the Glasgow giants, calling him a ‘magnificent player’ and a ‘big piece’ of their jigsaw (The Scotsman).
He also impressed at Euro 2020, with no Finnish player making more interceptions than Kamara (3.3 per game) over their three group games (WhoScored).
We believe he could be a fruitful option if West Ham decide to pursue a move further.
