Gabby Agbonlahor has stated that Rangers are preparing for life without midfielder Glen Kamara after bringing in John Lundstram.

Speaking to Football Insider, the former Aston Villa and England star claimed the Gers would be “buzzing” if the player stays at Ibrox.

Fellow midfielder Lundstram penned a three-year deal with the Glasgow club earlier this month after quitting Sheffield United.

It was reported at the beginning of March, the club value the 25-year-old at £10 million. That was before his stunning performances for Finland at the Euro 2020.

The Athletic‘s Jordan Campbell reported last week that Premier League sides West Ham and Watford are both admirers of Kamara with former club Arsenal have reportedly also registered their interest with manager Mikel Arteta eyes midfield reinforcements.

Asked whether John’s arrival points towards the Gers planning without Kamara, Gabby told Football Insider: “100 per cent.

“Rangers have to qualify for the Champions League so Steven Gerrard will want to be prepared for that. He won’t want to be ill-prepared and then Kamara leaves before that game.

“You have to get the back-up in and then before the transfer window’s closed and you have to sell him you know you’ve got the player in already.

“It’s a good bit of business by Rangers and I’m sure they’d wish him the best if he left. But if he didn’t leave and he stayed, they’d be buzzing.”

Rangers purchased Kamara from the Dens Park – Kilmac outfit Dundee in the winter transfer market of 2019 for just £50,000.

He has netted four times and grabbed five assists in 106 matches across all competitions for the Scottish outfit.

In the meantime, Rangers star Kai Kennedy’s loan transfer to Peter Grant’s Dunfermline Athletic has been put on hold due to lack of certainty over his Ibrox future, according to a recent report from The Athletic.

The online news outlet states a loan move to the Scottish Championship outfit was expected to go through this transfer market but has been held up because of the Premier League club West Ham United’s interest in the 19-year-old highly-regarded talent.

The Hammers has made bids to sign the Scottish youth international which have been snubbed by the Gers, though it is claimed that Dunfermline is still a likely destination for the ace regardless of where Kai’s permanent future lies.
