Ibrox sources respond as Galatasaray and Marseille line up for Rangers star Glen Kamara

Ibrox sources have insisted that Rangers have received no bids for midfielder Glen Kamara this summer, according to the Scottish Daily Mail.

The newspaper has reported in its print edition [19 July, pg. 73] that Galatasaray and Marseille are just two of the clubs believed to be considering an approach around £7million.

However, it is shared that figure would need to be raised if either of them wanted to be successful in their approach if they wanted to be successful.

With Calvin Bassey and Joe Aribo both moving on this summer, there is no need for others to go.

Rangers are set to bank over £30million from those sales and that is the new player model working perfectly at Ibrox, especially when you look at the profit for the defender.

When you add Nathan Patterson into the mix, that is almost a £50million windfall in less than two years, an insane amount of money for the club to make.

No chance.

When we say it would take a ludicrous amount of money for Kamara to move on, we are talking closer to £20million than what is currently being proposed.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst and Ross Wilson are now rolling in the profit given what has been brought in compared to what has been spent this summer.

Rangers have moved smartly in the window in terms of incomings, leaving behind plenty of money to use if needed down the line to keep players around and offer new contracts.

Kamara is a key part of the transitional midfield in this system, linking with the final third and tying things together – something that will be even more important now Aribo has moved on.

Galatasaray and Marseille don’t have anything that we cannot offer Kamara in his career, and if anything, we will always have more chance with every piece of silverware – something we proved in Europe last season.
