Journalist reports Leeds United want to sign Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara

Leeds United are interested in making a move for Rangers star midfielder Glen Kamara in the summer, according to journalist Graeme Bailey.

The Finland international has been linked with a move away from the Ibrox Stadium with Brighton & Hove Albion leading the chase [90min].

However, Bailey, while speaking on Talking Transfers Podcast, revealed that Leeds are also one of the clubs interested in signing Kamara.

“Brighton have an interest in Kamara, he is one of the players who is being considered as a replacement for Yves Bissouma,” he said. “Kamara who was fabulous for Rangers in that Europa League run, and there is now plenty of Bundesliga interest in Kamara.

“There are other clubs as well. Southampton are sniffing around, Leeds have had a look as well, obviously he’s a former Arsenal starlet as well.”

If you ask every fan about Kamara’s attributes, they will tell you two things — agility and aggression.

He is aggressive in almost every way that he plays. If we regard him as a player’s manager, it won’t be wrong because he is out there to do any job for his manager.

The Rangers midfielder was absolutely sensational for the Gers in the last two seasons and was one of the reasons why they reached the Europa League final.

In the recently concluded season, Kamara made 52 appearances for the club across all competitions, scoring three goals and providing three assists [Transfermarkt].

If we just look at the technical side of things, the 26-year-old is the kind of player that will add personality and leadership to the Leeds dressing room. This was one of the things that they heavily missed last season.

As the recent reports suggest that Kalvin Phillips is on his way to Manchester City, Kamara might prove to be an excellent replacement for the England international.
