Leeds United keep close tabs on Rangers star Glen Kamara ahead of transfer deadline

Leeds United remain in the hunt to seal a late summer swoop for Rangers and Finland midfielder Glen Kamara, according to TeamTalk.

The football news website reports that Newcastle are showing last-ditch interest in the 25-year-old while West Ham and Wolves have also been keen this summer.

Leeds have been strongly linked with signing a new central midfielder before the transfer window closes at 11pm on August 31.

Please, get this deal done

Kamara is someone we feel is a realistic target for Leeds who is also far better than Lewis O’Brien and Conor Gallagher, who’ve both been linked with moves to Elland Road this summer.

Since joining Rangers from Dundee for just £50,000 in 2019, Kamara has helped the Gers win the Scottish Premiership title, reach the last 16 of the Europa League on two occasions and play a huge role in Finland qualifying for the European Championships earlier this summer.

The Scotsman reported in June that Steven Gerrard’s club stand to make an “eye-watering profit” on Kamara if he moves on this summer.

And the fact the Gers are out of the Champions League could mean that they need to sell a player or two before the transfer window closes.

Last year, their managing director Stewart Robertson said that they need to start moving players on to offset their financial losses [FourFourTwo].

The Scottish champions have missed out on millions by dropping into the Europa League.

Leeds may want to take advantage of that in the closing stages of the summer transfer window.

In other Leeds United news, the Whites have been linked with a shock move to sign this international striker.
