Earlier this month, Teemu Pukki claimed that Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara would move to the Premier League and that his Finland teammate would fit right at home in England’s top tier – and now both Everton and Leeds are reportedly keen.
Kamara, 24,is considered the bargain of Steven Gerrard’s era as Rangers manager after he was lured to Ibrox from Dundee for just £50,000. The Finland international has enjoyed an excellent start this season, shining against Celtic last weekend.
Despite only joining in January 2019, Kamara already has 69 Rangers appearances under his belt and Premier League clubs are beginning to sit up and notice. TeamTalk claim Everton and Leeds have checked on Kamara, since the window ended.
Not just Everton and Leeds, but Borussia Dortmund, Southampton, Monaco and Lille are said to have considered Kamara. Earlier this month, Norwich and ex-Celtic man Pukki predicted a Premier League move for the Arsenal academy product.
“Glen is a top player and I think he would definitely do well in the English Premier League. I’d bet on him playing there at some point in his career,” Pukki said earlier this month, as per The National.
TBR’s view – Leeds or Everton for Kamara?
Everton brought in Allan and Abdoulaye Doucoure in the summer, meaning his chances of breaking into the starting eleven are slim at Goodison Park. But at Leeds, he has a much better chance of first-team football.
That is because the Whites tried to sign a midfielder in the summer, with Michael Cuisance failing a medical. He might not be as attacking as Leeds want alongside Mateusz Klich, but having Kamara would tighten things up and allow Klich to get forward.
If £10million-rated (90Min) Kamara has offers from both Everton and Leeds in the near future, there should only be one winner.
