A claim has been made regarding Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara and interest in his services from Arsenal over the summer.
According to Football Insider, Arsenal made a move to sign Glen Kamara from Rangers during the summer transfer window.
The report claims that the Gunners identified the Finland international as a target and were prepared to offer him a five-year contract, but they were unable to come to agreeable terms with Rangers.
Rangers fans will love this reveal for multiple reasons. Firstly, it shows that the club are not willing to sell their best players easily. Just because a Premier League side is interested in signing a player from Rangers it does not mean that they will be able to do it with ease.
The Gers seemingly stood firm and refused to be bullied into selling Kamara for a fee lower than their valuation of his talents. This will delight supporters who do not want to see the club’s best players prized away by other sides for a pittance.
Fans will also surely love that Kamara refused to throw his toys out of the pram. Despite Rangers failing to agree a deal with Arsenal, the Finnish midfielder did not push the issue or hand in a transfer request in an attempt to force his way out of Ibrox, despite reportedly being interested in the switch.This shows a touch of class, as a human being, from Kamara that the supporters will appreciate.
They will now be able to enjoy his talents until at least January.
Neil McCann, his former manager at Dundee United, claimed that the midfielder is ‘made of iron’. He said of Kamara: “He isn’t a big, physical lad but he’s made of iron and really strong. I knew immediately that he could handle the ball under pressure and not give it away, so he was perfect.
McCann added: “He’s a special talent. He’s lightning-quick but he doesn’t show it. He’s a player who takes instruction well.”
This is why fans will be happy that he remains a Rangers player for the next few months, at least, as he has proven himself to be a quality player for the club.
