As reported by The Herald, clubs like Rangers interested in the services of Dundee midfielder Glen Kamara have been warned he won’t be leaving on the cheap.
The Ibrox side have been linked with many players since Steven Gerrard took over they’ve already secured the permanent signings of Allan McGregor, Scott Arfield and Jamie Murphy.
Most of the players reported to be transfer targets play in leagues other than the Scottish Premiership, but there are one or two standing out enough in the domestic game to be linked with a move to Glasgow.
One of those is Glen Kamara, according to The Herald, who also say Celtic, Swansea City and Derby County are also interested in his services.
However, Dundee manager Neil McCann has warned he won’t be leaving unless it’s a fantastic deal for the Dens Park outfit.
As quoted by The Herald, the former Gers winger said:
We’re not ignorant that he’s not going to get attention. I’m not in a position to say Glen will not go, because if a big bid comes in for him like it did for Jack Hendry [from Celtic] and the club can use that to make itself better, then I have to make sure I equip my squad to go with that.
I want to be stronger next year but I don’t want Glen Kamara to go anywhere and I tell you right now, Glen will be going nowhere unless it’s right for this club and I mean that it will need to be some serious cash.
Should Rangers be making a move for the midfielder this summer?
Kamara has been a stand-out for the Dees since moving from Arsenal last summer, helping them avoid relegation and winning the club’s Player of the Year Award.
The 22-year-old has been almost ever present at Dens this season and has excellent potential having received his football education at the Emirates. He could add physicality and composure to the midfield at Ibrox that they are currently lacking.
Also a full international with Finland, his future is bright and if Rangers can secure his signature ahead of Swansea and Celtic, it would likely only be a positive. For the player too it could be the right switch, with the prospect of first team football more likely at Ibrox than either of those sides.
