Juventus are preparing an £8m January swoop for Glen Kamara according to the Daily Record and Mail on Sunday.
The midfielder left Dundee for Ibrox in January for £50,000 but is now being lined up for the most spectacular move since Graeme Souness convinced Newcastle United to sign Jean-Alain Boumsong in 2005. Two years later City of London Police raided St James’ Park and Ibrox.
As recently as Friday Steven Gerrard said that none of his first team stars would be sold in January but behind the scenes it appears that frantic work is going on to fill the funding hole for this season.
Last month the club accounts revealed that £10m was needed to see out the season which prompted Dave King to walk away as chairman. On January 17 Sports Direct will be awarded ‘many millions of pounds’ in costs for breach of contract.
Speculation about James Tavernier has come to a sudden halt but today attention has turned to Kamara.
The Daily Record reports:
In-form Glen Kamara is being tracked by European heavyweights Juventus – according to a report. Rangers boss Steven Gerrard revealed last month a host of top clubs were keeping a close eye on the Finland international who will star for his country at Euro 2020.
The 24-year-old has been a roaring success at Ibrox since his bargain £50k move from Dundee in January. Kamara has earned rave reviews for his displays this season and now the Serie A giants have emerged as potential suitors.
The all-action midfielder is also believed to be on the radar of Championship big-hitters Leeds United who remain keen on the former Arsenal graduate.
And now The Mail on Sunday claim Maurizio Sarri’s side are weighing up a move for a player Rangers value in the region of £8million.
Since Gerrard came in as manager the club has raised £2.5m in transfer fees for Daniel Candeias and Josh Windass.
Today is the start of December, not April.
