Rangers transfer news: Barry Ferguson offers Glen Kamara theory
Rangers legend Barry Ferguson has asked the club to sell Glen Kamara this summer.
What’s the latest from the Rangers?
Talk to Go Radio football show, Ferguson suggested transfer links with Cologne midfielder Salih Ozcan could be an indication that Kamara was not going to extend his contract at Ibrox and as a result Rangers could sell him.
“It could be a sign that Glen Kamara might not be committing to the Rangers, hence the fact that this guy was mentioned with a move,” he said (via The scottish sun).
“I don’t know much about him. He plays at a decent club, Cologne.
“But to come back to it, it looks like Kamara won’t be extending his contract.
“And if not, you have to go and take it and bring in another midfielder.
“Kamara will start the last 12 months of his contract (next summer) and has already been offered a new contract.
“You don’t want players going into the last 12 months.”
How long is Kamara left on his contract?
Having joined in January 2019, the Finland international has a contract that runs until the summer of 2023.
While he was doing reveal talks on a renewal had started, GIVEMESPORT understand that former club Arsenal are one of the clubs keen to move for the 25-year-old, as we reported in April.
How well has Kamara performed for the Rangers?
the Offer of £ 50,000 bringing Kamara to the Dundee Rangers has to be considered one of their best in recent history.
Indeed, the former Arsenal youngster played a central role in the club’s victory, making 28 league appearances, as well as 10 in their impressive run to the knockout stages of the Europa League.
According to Who scored data, no outfield player with more than 3 appearances produced a better success rate than him (90.5%) and his key pass average per match in the Europa League was the highest of any central midfielder in the club books.
Could the Rangers sell Kamara?
With Arsenal closely monitoring his situation, it might make sense to move him if a deal cannot be reached.
Next summer, he will enter the last year of his contract if this situation does not develop, making the transfer window about to open the last time they could reasonably charge a relatively large fee for the player.
What did Ross Wilson say about the prospect of selling players?
Obviously, the Rangers don’t want to be in a position where they are forced to play with the players who have proven so essential in ending their decade-long drought for the league trophy.
Yet given the current state of finances across the world due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, this may be more necessary than in the past, although athletic director Ross Wilson has stressed that they would only move players at the right time.
“We know these players can play in any of the top five leagues,” he told The telegraph in May.
“We also know that they really enjoy Ranger life. We will make sure that we switch players at the right time.”
