Rangers new manager could be faced with Glen Kamara exit decision as report emerges in Italy

Italian club Salernitana have reignited their interest in signing Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara, according to a report from TuttoSalernitana.

90 Min reported on 29 July that the Italian club were interested in signing Kamara, while Nottingham Forest also made an inquiry around that time.

It appears that Salernitana are still interested in him as they look to bolster their midfield in January. They also like the fact that Kamara can play as a right-back as well.

Headache for the new boss?

The January window is going to be crucial for the club as the new manager (whoever he is) will have the herculean task to close the gap with Celtic. 

The Bears trail by nine points at the top at the moment, and the squad requires major surgery in January. The incoming manager won’t be happy to lose key players, and that’s why Kamara’s transfer links are a bit worrying. 

Kamara has a long-term contract at Ibrox, and Rangers can demand a high transfer fee for him. But he has been pretty average since Steven Gerrard left the club. 

Under Giovanni van Bronckhorst, he was not even the club’s first-choice midfielder. At one point, he was linked with a move to Premier League clubs, but interest in him has died down, thanks to his below-par performances. 

Ideally, Rangers will want him to stay and rediscover his form. But if they get a good offer, the club probably would be tempted to sell him. 

In other Rangers news, this Gers midfielder has suffered a major injury blow and could be out until March.
