Rangers star Glen Kamara has been talking up his “dream” of playing Premier League football as links intensify surrounding a potential move south of the border.

Football Insider reported earlier in the international break that Rangers were now seriously considering cashing in on Glen Kamara in the next window with several suitors south of the border.

Amongst them includes Aston Villa – now managed by ex-Rangers boss Steven Gerrard, the man who brought Kamara to Ibrox – and Leeds United.

There are also murmurs surrounding OGC Nice potentially reigniting their interest in Glen Kamara, with the Ligue 1 side failing in a late bid to bring the Finnish international to France this summer.

Speaking during the international break with the Scandinavian nation, Glen Kamara opened up on his future and paid tribute to Rangers even if he talked up a move to the English top flight.

The midfielder also suggested that he’d be interested in a move to any of the so-called “top five leagues”, meaning a move to France might not be so unrealistic after all.

“I have always dreamed of playing in the Premier League,” said Kamara [Helsingin Sanomat].

“And perhaps not just playing in the English Premier League, but in the top five leagues in general. They all interest me.

“Let’s see what happens (in January). My time at Rangers has been good. The club has been good to me. I’ve been there for almost four years. Who knows what the future will bring.

“We just have to wait and see what happens.”

Glen Kamara is undoubtedly a top player but over the last few seasons the ex-Arsenal academy midfielder has toiled for the consistency which saw him establish himself as a key star in the Rangers side since joining from Dundee in the January of 2019

Signing a new contract only last summer which ties him to Ibrox until 2025, Rangers are in a strong position with the midfielder whose European and international appearances hold weight in the transfer market.

Rangers manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst hasn’t used Glen Kamara as widely as his predecessor Steven Gerrard, with the Dutch coach even using the Finn as a #10 during his time at the club.

However, it’s telling that Kamara is generally always used in Europe as the club play to his strengths.

It’s clear that long-term Glen Kamara sees himself in the Premier League but will a club from the English top flight stump up for the player with Rangers holding all the cards as things stand?

The midfielder has also once again found himself at the centre of an unwelcome racism incident as UEFA investigate allegations from Finland’s recent victory over Montenegro.
