Rangers’ midfield maestro Glen Kamara has been linked with a return to former club Arsenal after his stunning performances for the Light Blues – but the Finnish international would be crazy to walk away from Ibrox to join the mid-table Gunners.

According to GiveMeSport, former Rangers star Mikel Arteta is weighing up a raid on his old club to lure Kamara back to the club he spent three years as a youngster as he looks to bolster the Arsenal midfield after another disappointing season at the Emirates.

However, with everything Kamara has on offer at Ibrox it is hard to see why he would want to leave the Gers and jump ship to a club that has lost their way over the last decade and are a shadow of what they once were.

With Champions League football on offer next season, a crack at defending the title and playing in front of one of the best supports anywhere in the world, a return to North London seems unthinkable.

During his time at Arsenal, Kamara only appeared once for the first-team, a League Cup tie with Sheffield Wednesday in October 2015, and since leaving the Emirates to sign for Dundee the Finnish international’s career has gone from strength to strength.


While it is inevitable that Kamara is going to attract interest given his performances for the Light Blues over the last two years, he’ll have plenty of options on the table if he decides he does want to move elsewhere in the future.

Clubs like Juventus have been credited with an interest in the past and Rangers have always been pretty upfront on the club’s desire to tie Kamara down to a longer contract and extend his stay at Ibrox beyond his existing deal, which ends in 2023.

The prospect of a return to Arsenal might be enticing to Kamara but, from the outside, it has hard to see what the Gunners can offer that Rangers can’t (except obscene amounts of cash).

Meanwhile, a comment from the Rangers SLO on Twitter suggests a controversial pundit has been denied access to Ibrox for the Gers’ Scottish Cup clash against Cove Rangers.
