Report: Sheffield United renew interest in £10m Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara

Sheffield United are once again showing interest in signing Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara, according to 90min.

They were linked with Kamara during the January transfer window, before the club record signing of Sander Berge.

The Blades face competition for the 24-year-old, though, with several others from the Premier League said to be keen. Crystal Palace, Everton, Newcastle United and Southampton are also keeping tabs on Kamara.

Meanwhile, in the Championship, Brentford and Norwich City are monitoring the situation as well.

Finally, both Dynamo Kiev and Dynamo Moscow are also interested in Kamara. Apparently they are willing to pay up to £10m to sign the Finland international.

Who is Glen Kamara?

Born in Finland, Kamara made the move to the UK as a teenager and joined the Arsenal academy. He made just one first team appearance for the Gunners, as well as spending time on loan at Southend United and Colchester United, before leaving for Dundee in 2017.

After 18 months there, Rangers signed Kamara for just £50,000 and he quickly became a key player for manager Steven Gerrard.

A defensive midfielder, the Fin is adept at breaking up play in front of the defence. Kamara’s breakthrough  campaign was 2019/20, playing 39 times in all competitions and catching the eye of Marseille in the process.

The Blades were also clearly monitoring the situation in January, although instead firmed up their long-term interest in Berge with a £22m transfer.

Yet as Chris Wilder looks to improve his squad following an impressive return to the top flight, once again attention has turned to Ibrox.

Wilder could certainly do with more options in midfield. John Fleck, Ollie Norwood and Berge appear to be the preferred trio in the middle as things stand.

Yet John Lundstram has been linked with an exit from Bramall Lane. Beyond that, Luke Freeman and Ben Osborn are the only other alternatives in the position.

However, it seems as if John Swift could be joining the club from Reading soon.
