A total of four Premier League clubs are locked in a tussle for Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara, according to a fresh report.
90min.com are claiming that Arsenal, Newcastle United and West Ham have all made contact regarding the player, whilst Watford also retain an interest.
These links come in the aftermath of Rangers’ Champions League exit to Malmo, with qualification for the group stages said to be worth north of £30m.
This may impact Rangers’ ability to reject any strong offers for their players with Kamara, 25, one of the Gers’ most valuable assets.
These claims also come as Rangers offer Glen Kamara a “really strong” new contract to keep him at the club with the ball now firmly in the player’s court.
Steven Gerrard reiterated the Ibrox side’s commitment to keeping Glen around as he left it up to him whether to extend his current deal, which has two years remaining.
“I love the kid, I love the player, and I’ve made it abundantly clear how much I want him to stay from a personal point of view,” said Gerrard [Rangers].
“There’s a real strong contract offer on the table for Glen, so the speed at which this happens is totally up to Glen – the ball is firmly in his court.
“The offer from the club is really good, his advisers are happy with the offer, so now it is totally down to Glen.
“So the question that you’ve just asked me should really go in Glen’s direction because we are ready and waiting and hoping that it’s done as soon as possible.”
Rangers have felt the absence of Kamara on the European stage too as the player missed the Champions League qualifiers due to a controversial suspension.
One midfielder who’s been linked to Rangers has just suffered a major international blow as the need to move on from his current side becomes clearer.
