Aston Villa target Glen Kamara wants Premier League move

Aston Villa have been handed a boost over one of their midfield targets.

What’s the word?

It comes as a result of quotes relayed by Birmingham Mail, detailing Glen Kamara’s intent on playing Premier League football.

Speaking to Finnish TV, Kamara said:

“Playing against Rangers at first, I thought the level was good but I fancied trying England because the level is better. But when I came to Rangers, I realised the level is really high and this is the best place to develop. I’d never say I wouldn’t play elsewhere in Europe. I’d like to play in the Premier League.”

Kamara’s contract expires in the summer of 2025, though, a fee of £10m could be enough to sign him with Villa linked with a swoop on a regular basis now.

The suggestion that he’d like to play across the border, however, is surely a green light for Steven Gerrard to make his move.

Gerrard will love him

It’s easy to forget that Gerrard is the one who brought Kamara to Rangers, with the Fin playing 122 of his 158 total games for the Gers under the Liverpudlian.

Should Villa sign Glen Kamara?

In that time, he has established himself as a stabiliser in the centre of the pitch – something that the Villa boss will have identified about the player during their time together.

Quite simply, the Villans faltered in possession across the last season. They struggled for consistency and finished 14th in terms of the Premier League possession ranks, registering an average of 46.4%.

A signing like Kamara can unlock the likes of John McGinn, Philippe Coutinho and Emi Buendia by giving them more freedom to attack with the midfield gem previously labelled a “huge talent” by journalist Graeme Bailey.

David Ginola at Aston Villa

First up, who did Aston Villa sign David Ginola from in 2000?

In the transitional phase of the game, new signing Kamara will likely stay back and will need assistance from a central midfielder in Gerrard’s 4-3-2-1 system.

The Finland international can be just that for Villa and presents a stable option in midfield.

Amidst the 26-year-old’s latest claim on his footballing future, it bodes well for Gerrard who will surely have no qualms in making a move for his former asset, somebody he evidently already loves.
