With Rangers linked with a move for Ivan Lepinjica and Giovanni van Bronckhorst already having plenty of midfielders to choose from, it is widely expected that at least one will be moved on from the current complement.

The most likely to move are those with the technical ability to play at a higher level, players that have proven their worth in the Europa League when composure on the ball is as important as work rate and positional sense, Glen Kamara being the first name that springs to mind.

There has been a hint of interest before despite there never being anything concrete but, as with most transfer windows, we could well be about to benefit from a transfer merry go round, as reported by 90min.com:

“Rangers ace Glen Kamara has emerged as a target for Brighton & Hove Albion this summer, 90min understands.

“Kamara was a key figure for Rangers during their run to the Europa League final, scoring a goal in the club’s dramatic semi final win over RB Leipzig at Ibrox.

“Having already sold midfield star Yves Bissouma to Tottenham this summer, Brighton scouts have been busy compiling reports on potential replacements in recent days, and we understand that one of the names that’s on their list of targets is Kamara.”

This is the sort of scenario that just didn’t happen last summer due to clubs counting the cost of Covid-19, the market at our level was stagnant and teams, like us, were keeping hold of their best players rather than selling at reduced fees and then struggling to replace them.

Kamara is a wonderfully gifted player, every goal he scored last season demonstrated perfectly just what he is capable of, the only frustration is that he doesn’t do it more often such is his ability.

The Finland international is one of those players who I think will actually only improve by going to a better league where what he is good at gets amplified and his weaknesses aren’t as obvious.

With three years on his contract and the potential to play for another ten years, we shouldn’t be accepting anything other than market value for a player who has shone at a major international tournament and against some high profile teams in the Europa League, he might not go for a club record but he certainly shouldn’t be far away from it.
