Steven Gerrard and Aston Villa could launch a late January move for Rangers star Glen Kamara – if their ambitious bid for Juventus midfielder Rodrigo Bentancur fails.
The Premier League side have had an impressive transfer window so far adding the likes of Lucas Digne and Phillipe Coutinho to their ranks.
The pull of Stevie G was huge at Rangers too but things have gone up a level with the spending power of the Prem and Villa are also in talks to pull off a major coup with Bentancur.
According to the Daily Mail, Villa hope to sign £16m-rated Rodrigo Bentancur due to an injury to midfielder Marvellous Nakamba but the deal is anything but done.
This is because Juventus and manager Max Allegri are unwilling to let the 24-year-old ex-Boca Juniors star leave without signing an established midfield campaigner to replace him.
Aston Villa to launch Rangers Glen Kamara move if Rodrigo Bentancur bid fails
Rangers have a vested interest in this amid reports that Gerrard could move for Glen Kamara – a player known to the Villa coaching staff – if a deal for the Uruguayan fails to come off.
Ekrem Konur is claiming that should an Aston Villa move for Rodrigo Bentancur fail to materialise, then Steven Gerrard will make a move for Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara.
But Finnish international Glen isn’t the only holding midfield player being linked to Aston Villa with the likes of £50m-rated Brighton star Yves Bissouma and Marseille midfielder Boubacar Kamara also mentioned.
As Rangers look to keep hold of their key players the final few days of the window promises to be a nervy time for everyone at Ibrox as deals are completed across Europe.
The Aston Villa move for Rodrigo Bentancur will now take on a new complexion for Rangers supporters desperate to see the likes of Glen Kamara stay beyond January.
Rangers too will look to make their own moves in the window as a leading Premier League talent reportedly gets sent to join the ranks at Ibrox.
