Ex-Steven Gerrard boss Rafa Benitez pursuing £7m-rated Rangers star

Rafa Benitez would’ve stunned former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard when he signed on at Everton and now he’s reportedly eyeing a major Rangers talent.

Ibrox midfielder Glen Kamara, 25, is one of the most highly sought after assets in the Ibrox squad if reports are to be believed and Rafa is apparently one of the managers keen on the player.

That’s according to Eurosport, who have compiled a list of the most highly sought-after talents around Europe.

Mentioned alongside the likes of Belgium’s Jeremey Doku and Ukraine’s Roman Yuremchuk, the report acts as a testament to the performances of Kamara at Euro 2020.

Exit reports have persisted regarding ex-Arsenal kid Kamara all summer long but as things stand the talented midfielder remains focused on life at Ibrox.

However, according to Eurosport Rangers fans are right to be worried about Kamara’s future as there is plenty of interest in the midfielder.

In the Premier League, Everton are mentioned whilst newly promoted clubs Brentford and Watford are two other names linked with the Gers star.

Interestingly, the report also makes mention of a “potential big-money offer” from an unnamed club in Russia.

This comes after claims originating from the wife of Spartak Moscow’s owner suggesting that the Russian outfit had launched a £5m bid for the player [Soccer.ru].

Zarema Salikhova also claimed that the player “was ready to move” in worrying comments which suggested Kamara “really wanted to play closer” to Finland.

Not that this fee would suffice for Rangers fans anymore – fans of the Ibrox club railed against a Gers legend for controversially valuing the Finnish international at only £7m.
