TBR View: Do Everton have trump card in reported pursuit of Rangers star Glen Kamara?

Everton are reportedly interested in signing Rangers star Glen Kamara, sending scouts to watch the Finland international’s progress in recent weeks – and they could find they boast a trump card in the race to sign the midfielder.

Kamara, 24, has been in stunning form for Rangers this season – proving to be a crucial part of the Rangers side that beat Celtic, and made the perfect start to their Europa League group stage campaign with a 2-0 win over Standard Liege.

His form has been unbelievable given that he was signed from Dundee for a bargain £50,000 in January 2019. Kamara has since become a starter for Finland, clocking up 69 appearances in all competitions for Rangers.


TeamTalk claim a handful of European sides considered a move in the summer, including Newcastle United. Since the window closed, Leeds, Everton and Borussia Dortmund have all checked on Kamara – scouting the midfielder.

However, Everton may find they have the ideal trump card in an outcast of their own. Muhamed Besic, 28, remains surplus to requirements at Everton – and according to Bosnian publication Sportske, Besic was a target for Rangers in the summer.

The Bosnia international could remain a target for Rangers given the interest was from September. His tough-tackling, ball-playing style could be just the kind of bite Steven Gerrard is looking for in his Rangers midfield.

So, surely Everton could tempt Rangers into the sale of Kamara by including Besic in a deal – and better yet, fend off the competition from Leeds, Dortmund, Monaco and Lille at the same time. Besic could be the trump card in a move for Kamara.
