Citing reports in Belgium, the Daily Record claims that Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara was a ‘live target’ for Anderlecht earlier in the transfer window.
Kamara moved to Ibrox from Dundee in January 2019 for the bargain fee of £50,000 and he’s since made 66 appearances in all competitions.
France Football reported earlier in the summer that Kamara’s performances had alerted the likes of Arsenal, Aston Villa and Marseille, and now, the Daily Record claims Anderlecht were also interested.
Former Manchester City captain, Vincent Kompany, is the current manager of the Belgian giants and it’s suggested that although he is an admirer of Kamara, he ultimately decided against making an offer due to a lack of adequate funds amid the global health crisis.
It’s claimed that it would have taken a sizeable bid for the Gers to even consider selling the Finland international.
Rangers star Glen Kamara was monitored by Anderlecht – Verdict
It’s no great surprise that Kamara has picked up admirers since arriving at Ibrox.
The 24-year-old isn’t yet the finished article and he can be too passive in his play at times in the middle of the park.
Yet, he tends to rise to the big occasion, with Steven Gerrard labelling him ‘outstanding’ after the Europa League qualifying win over Galatasaray on Thursday night [Rangers.co.uk], and he has shone at international level over the past 18 months.
Rangers are in line to make a big profit from Kamara when he does eventually leave the club, but he has been an important member of the starting XI in recent weeks and there isn’t enough strength in depth in midfield to sell him right now.
The Gers boss has Kamara, Steven Davis, Scott Arfield and Ryan Jack to call upon, but with Joe Aribo still out injured, he’s hoping to bring in a new face or two before the transfer window slams shut on Monday.
