Exclusive – Eastern European outfits Dynamo Kiev and Dinamo Moscow are both lining up bids for Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara this summer, joining a host of Premier League clubs in the race for the 24-year-old.
Kamara joined the Scottish giants from Dundee for a mere £50,000 fee in January 2019; evolving into a prominent member of Steven Gerrard’s starting XI at Ibrox in a defensive midfield role.
The former Arsenal academy student appeared 19 times in the Scottish Premiership for the Gers last time out and has completed 90 minutes in their two opening games of the 2020/21 league campaign thus far.
His impressive consistency, however, means the Finnish star has evolved into a man in demand this summer.
Sources have indicated to 90min that Ukrainian side Dynamo Kiev and Russian outfit Dinamo Moscow are ready to pay up to £10m to secure Kamara’s signature, and although Rangers do not want to lose the 24-year-old, they’re also not in a position to turn down a substantial bid for his services.
The two eastern European sides aren’t the only clubs with a recognised interest in the Gers midfielders, though, he’s also garnered plenty of interest from the Premier League and a return to England certainly isn’t off the table.
Sheffield United, Crystal Palace, Everton, Newcastle and Southampton are all believed to have expressed an interest, along with Championship duo Norwich and Brentford.
Nevertheless, Kamara – who’s break out campaign also caught the eye of French giants Marseille – revealed back in January that he wasn’t prepared to let the speculation over his future affect his career.
“The manager hasn’t spoken to me about the speculation at all,” he said. “It has been a big turnaround when I think back 12 months. I’m just pleased to be here and want to keep working hard.
“Coming up to Scotland was definitely one of my best decisions. It was to get game-time under my belt in men’s football and it has worked out well.”
Kamara is set to play a key role in Finland’s bow at the European Championships next summer, although it remains to be seen whether he’ll still be a Rangers player by the time the tournament rolls around.
