According to a report from Herald Scotland, Leeds United will need to pay £8 million if they hope to sign Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara, with three Premier League sides also keen on the Finland international.
Kamara has been a revelation for the Gers. Herald Scotland reports that they paid just £50,000 when they signed him in January. And he took little time to establish himself as a key part of Steven Gerrard’s plans.
Herald Scotland reports that Leeds now want the 24-year-old as they look to get out of the Championship. Meanwhile, Bournemouth, Crystal Palace and Brighton and Hove Albion are also interested.
The report adds that Rangers are under no pressure to sell and could hold out for £8 million.
TBR View – Leeds already look like underdogs
Leeds may hope that Kamara stays at Ibrox beyond January. Otherwise, it does appear that Marcelo Bielsa’s men have little chance of rivalling the top flight trio.
The club’s only signings in the summer arrived from the loan market. So without selling a key player, Leeds will surely struggle to find the funds to meet Rangers’s demands while they are in the second tier.
That certainly opens the door for his top flight admirers. But if Kamara stays until the summer, and Leeds are promoted, then perhaps the Whites will have the opportunity to try and bring him to Elland Road.
