West Ham make enquiry to sign Glen Kamara this summer - report
West Ham have approached Rangers to ask about the availability of midfielder Glen Kamara this summer, according to Give Me Sport.
The Finland international has been one of the Gers’ best players since moving to Ibrox in 2019.
Hammers boss David Moyes is understood to have been impressed by his performances at Euro 2020.
Despite Finland getting knocked out at the group stage, Kamara remained their standout performer and could be in the midst of a transfer saga given the interest in services.
Premier League clubs including Arsenal, Brentford, Watford and Everton are all reportedly eyeing a potential move for the 25-year-old this summer. [Give Me Sport]
Stick or twist?
We know that Kamara is eventually going to want to take the step up for the betterment of his career so he could look to move when a bigger club comes in for him.
West Ham may not be at the prestigious level as Rangers are but they’re a Premier League club and can offer him higher wages than we can and also the opportunity of playing in the world’s most-watched football league.
One thing that could dissuade him from going there is the fact that the Hammers don’t have Champions League football to offer him like we do, which we could use as a bargaining tool in order to convince him to stay for another season.
That said, his contract expires in two years and if he doesn’t pen an extension now, we would have to sell him next summer and we probably won’t be able to get as much from his sale as we would if he part ways with him this summer.
It’s a tricky decision as he’s widely known as a favourite of Steven Gerrard and he might not be open to the idea of selling him this summer.
We still don’t know what the best thing to do is, but losing a player like Kamara would land a huge blow to our title aspirations.
