Arsenal remain interested in signing Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara, despite splashing the cash to bring Anderlecht star Albert Sambi Lokonga to the Emirates.
The Gunners were first linked with a move to Kamara – who came through the youth ranks at the London club – by Graeme Bailey of the Mirror earlier in the summer.
Arsenal like Yves Bissouma…he is very high on their wanted list. The player is also believed to want the move…the Gunners are also keeping an eye on Donny van de Beek, Glen Kamara and Ebrima Darboe.

However with little movement in this regard and Arsenal’s attentions seemingly elsewhere, plenty felt a move was never a goer, this season at least.
Mikel Arteta instead opted to spend a reported £17.2m on Anderlecht midfielder Lokonga, 21, in a move that appeared to settle their need for a midfield presence.
But despite this move, Give Me Sport are now reporting that the Premier League outfit “remain interested” in a move for the 25-year-old Rangers midfielder.
That report claims the Gunners are lining up a £10m move for the Ibrox and Finland star after proposed interest in Wolves midfielder Ruben Neves fell through.
Manchester United are now leading the pack for Portuguese playmaker Neves [TalkSPORT] with Kamara the fall-back for an Arsenal side looking to improve this summer.
The £10m valuation comes from a report in the Daily Mail which also links Brentford and Watford with a move for Kamara, who impressed at this summer’s European Championships.
The claims also come after Arsenal managed to secure a new deal for midfielder Emile Smith Rowe, who was reportedly the subject of £30m Aston Villa transfer interest earlier in the summer.

Despite all the transfer talk Kamara has returned to Gers training this week after his time away with Finland this summer.
Talking of the Premier League, one reported Gers target has just turned down a contract offer from a top tier English club amid links to Rangers.
