On-form Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara is a transfer target for Premier League Aston Villa as they look to fill a John McGinn shaped hole following the Scotland international’s long-term ankle injury.
The Daily Mail [(29/12; page 112)] are claiming that the Villains want to sign the Finnish international as they look to stave off the threat of relegation from the Premier League.
Kamara, 24, has emerged as a key player under Steven Gerrard ever since signing from Dundee for £50k last January and this is not the first time the former Arsenal Academy star has reportedly attracted interest from down south.
Back in October, the same news outlet reported that Villa were one of four Premier League clubs tracking the talented Scandinavian.
Alongside Burnley, Crystal Palace and Brighton, Villa were said to have identified Kamara as a potential transfer target in January [Daily Mail].
Rangers were then said to be demanding at least 160 times the amount they paid for the player should the Premier League come calling, with an £8m price tag reportedly being slapped on the former Dens Park man’s head [Herald].
Whilst the suggestion Villa could pounce for Kamara as they look to reinforce their squad might worry Ibrox fans, it should also be taken as a compliment.
John McGinn’s astonishing rise at Villa has culminated in the talented 25-year-old being linked with a £50m move to Manchester United.
If Aston Villa see Kamara as capable of filling the boots of a player who’s being touted for that kind of money, maybe Rangers need to reconsider that reported £8m asking price should the Villa Park club make their interest concrete.
