The press have engaged in ‘dirty tricks’ after trying to state Rangers will accept just £10M for star midfielder Glen Kamara.
The national press, always eager to undervalue Rangers’ star players, has tried to cut Kamara’s value by as much as two thirds, making the Finn a fraction of his £20M-£30M market numbers.
Kamara has been the centre of attention the past couple of months following the Praha scandal, and it’s well-known Arsenal’s Mikel Arteta is a big admirer of his – but of course, like so many clubs down south, the Gunners can’t offer Kamara the Champions League.
But evidently they can offer him a bigger wage than Rangers can or will.
Kamara’s under a tonne of speculation over a new deal, but nothing has materialised yet, and the manager said some time ago how eager the former Dundee man was to extend, but with the interest down south, it may be that that position has changed a bit.
Arsenal, of course, have been linked with their former man for some time now, and with Arteta wanting a more credible PL campaign next season, is said to see Kamara as key to that.
But they’ll have to dig deeper than the silly claims the press are making that £10M will be enough.
Not by a long way.
