Aston Villa ‘favorites’ to sign £10m man from Champions League club
TeamTalk claim Aston Villa and Steven Gerrard are ‘favorites’ to sign Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara in the January window, with the Ibrox club ready to cash in on the Finland international for a fee of just £10million sterling.
Kamara, 26, has been in and out of the Rangers side this season under Giovanni van Bronckhorst. Present in 10 of his team’s 14 league and cup matches this season, Kamara has only started six times. He’s not the Rangers’ first choice.
But Gerrard is obviously a fan, having signed the former Arsenal man from Rangers for £50,000 from Dundee. Kamara is considered one of his best deals when he was in the Ibrox dugout. Now Rangers are ready to sell.
TeamTalk report that Rangers only want £10m for Kamara in January. They say Villa are ‘favourites’ to win his signature and won’t be put off by the number. He has a contract with Ibrox until the summer of 2025.
Villa favorites to sign Rangers midfielder Kamara for just £10m
While Kamara struggles to break into the Rangers XI, he is still highly regarded north of the border. In the opinion of many, he is actually better for the Gers in European competition. In other words, compared to his form in the Premiership.
Villa have midfield options. But Morgan Sanson’s future is unlikely to lie at Villa, while new signing Boubacar Kamara has picked up an injury. Douglas Luiz is out of contract at the end of the current season. They need another.
For just £10m they could do a lot worse than a player like Kamara. A player with Champions League experience, 168 appearances to his name for a club like Rangers – and is set to win his 48th cap on Monday night.
