Following 7-a-side reunion, Arsenal ‘remain interested’ in luring Rangers’ Glen Kamara back to the club

Following 7-a-side reunion, Arsenal ‘remain interested’ in luring Rangers’ Glen Kamara back to the club

 

Reports in the English media on Friday suggest that Premier League giants Arsenal remain interested in the signing of Rangers star Glen Kamara.

Rangers standout

Finnish international Kamara lit up the Scottish football landscape once again this past season.

After initially making the move up north to join Dundee in 2017, the all-action midfielder’s impressive displays were quickly picked up on by giants Rangers.

In turn, the 25-year-old swapped the Kilmac Stadium for Ibrox a little over two years ago, and has since not looked back.

Kamara has established himself as an absolutely crucial cog at the heart of a fine Rangers side, which of course romped to the Scottish Premiership title under Steven Gerrard’s watch in 2020/21.

All told, the ex-Southend talent racked up 51 appearances across all competitions, notching two goals and two assists along the way.

Gunners return?

Such impressive exploits on the part of the Rangers star, though, have not gone at all unnoticed back down south.

Kamara is actually a product of the Arsenal youth system, having been on the books of the Gunners for 5 years from 2012 to 2017.

Following a pair of loan spells away from North London, the midfielder was eventually allowed to depart on a permanent basis, without having made a single Premier League appearance.

Recent weeks, however, have seen speculation mount that Mikel Arteta and co. could move to lure Kamara back to his former stomping ground ahead of the fast-approaching new season.

Despite the arrival of Albert Sambi Lokonga from Anderlecht, Arsenal are known to remain on the lookout for reinforcements in the middle of the park.

This comes with Dani Ceballos having returned to Real Madrid following the expiration of his loan deal, and Granit Xhaka expected to seal a move to AS Roma any day now.

In turn, a whole host of high-profile names have been tipped to make the move to the Emirates, with recent days having seen links with Wolves’ Ruben Neves reemerge.

As outlined above, though, on Friday, it has been suggested that Arsenal are ready to turn their attentions back towards Kamara.

As per a report from GiveMeSport, if a move for a more established continental performer cannot be secured, Mikel Arteta could well sanction a swoop for Rangers’ midfield enforcer.

A rumoured price-tag of around 10 million pounds would also make Kamara a considerably more affordable option than the likes of the aforementioned Neves.

Reunion

Interestingly, fresh links between Arsenal and Kamara have arrived just days after the Finn linked up with an ex-teammate from his Gunners days, in the form of Alex Iwobi.

The one-time up-and-comers in North London joined the likes of Fikayo Tomori and current Arsenal talent Hubert Graczyk for a star-studded game of 7-a-side in the English capital.
