Rangers have been preparing for selling Glen Kamara by looking at Everton’s Muhamed Besic, and Motherwell’s Alan Campbell, according to reports.

The Finnish international is subject to serious interest from Vincent Kompany’s Anderlecht, amidst Brighton and Marseille keeping tabs on the former Arsenal man, but the ex-Man City legend will have to shell out up to £20M to prise the 24-year old from Ibrox.

Kamara has been in exceptional form this season.

And Rangers have been subsequently linked with Everton’s Besic, 28, and Motherwell’s Campbell, 22, as potential replacements should they sell our midfield anchor.

Campbell is said to be on a lot of clubs’ radar, but would be a critical pre-contract given his current expires in the summer. His market value is in the region of £1M due to final year, and the Steelmen desperately do not want to lose him, hoping he signs a new term.

But clubs like Rangers, and of course Celtic, are said to be looking into him so the lure of a big move like that might be too much.

As for Besic, he’s out of favour at Goodison, having only made 9 league appearances last season and none this, but like Campbell his deal ends next summer, so he’d be another one on a pre-contract.

Which means both Campbell and Besic, if acquired as a replacement for Kamara, would be immediate signings as a matter of urgency and potentially minimal cost.

Might be better to hold onto the Finn but big money talks.
