Former Rangers footballer Alan Hutton has said the Ibrox club should sell Glen Kamara if they receive an ‘unbelievable’ bid of £10m for the player.
In September last year, the midfielder signed a new deal at Ibrox that should, in theory, keep him put until the summer of 2025. However, we all know plenty of players don’t hang around until the end of their contracts.
And since then, Kamara has been the subject of transfer speculation. For instance, according to The Scottish Sun, French outfit Nice tried and failed to sign the Rangers man on transfer deadline day for a fee in the region of £10m, while there have been claims that the Gers could be willing to sell.
In a recent interview with Football Insider, Hutton was asked if he thinks the club should sell Kamara this winter for that price.
He replied: “I think so.
“They’ve obviously got a number in mind, £10m seems about right.
“Don’t get me wrong, it’s money well spent, they only forked out £50k for him. To get £10m in, I think is an unbelievable price. Personally, I don’t want to see any good players leave the club, especially with the direction they’re moving in, Champions League and so on. So I’d like to see him stay.
“If he feels that his future is elsewhere, you want the most money in and I think £10m would be acceptable.”
Would you sell Glen Kamara for £10m?
TIF Thoughts on Glen Kamara and Rangers…
With 10 appearances to his name in all competitions so far this season, Kamara is clearly a very important part of Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s team. On top of that, he has lifted major silverware with the club in each of the past two seasons, so it’s easy to see why he may have impressed others during that time.
So with Kamara playing well and still having plenty of years left on his contract, his value might be at its highest point. If that is the case and Rangers view £10m as a fair price, it may make sense to sell him this winter.
After all, seeing as they only paid Dundee £50,000 for his signature and have got such good service out of him since then, there’s no reason why Rangers can’t cash in on Kamara and use that money to potentially help improve the squad in a number of areas.
All in all, it’s hard to argue with Hutton’s point, so we may see the midfielder leave in the near future.
