Finland international in no rush to extend his Rangers deal
Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara is delaying a response on a proposal of a new contract in order to ‘see what happens’ during the final days of the summer transfer market, according to a recent by GiveMeSport.
He had a superb 2020/21 campaign at Ibrox before carrying his stunning form into the European Championships with his country.
A host of clubs have been touted with interest in the player, including Watford, Leeds United and Arsenal, with the Daily Mail reporting earlier this summer that the star’s price tag was around £10 million.
Now, GiveMeSport reports that Glen is holding out to see what offers are tabled during the final week of the market before committing to the Gers.
Premier League club encouraged to snap up Rangers’ Nathan Patterson
Everton have now been backed to land Nathan Patterson before the summer transfer market ends, providing that one condition is met.
As per The Daily Mirror, the Toffees have made a £5m offer to try and sign him from Rangers. As quoted by The Scottish Sun, manager Steven Gerrard labelled the rumoured proposal as ‘a joke’ when quizzed about it.
Speaking to Football Insider, former Coventry City and Leeds United striker now pundit Noel Whelan has backed the Merseyside outfit to sign Patterson before the market shuts:
“They are obviously testing the water but Gerrard knows Patterson’s worth because he works with him every day. Let’s be honest, £5 million for a player of Patterson’s quality is a joke in this day and age, If the money is right though, I think a deal could be struck there.”
Rangers dealt another blow in their summer pursuit of Joey Veerman
Rangers continue to be linked with Heerenveen midfielder Joey Veerman but the Dutch side’s sporting director has confirmed that there is “no financial need” to sell him.
Speaking to De Telegraaf, Heerenveen chief Cees Roozemond admitted that whilst they will “happily” sell £8m-rated midfielder, there is no pressure to do so.
“The bids that arrived weren’t interesting for us. We’d happily grant Joey a transfer, we really want to give him that chance but it’s also just a quiet transfer window,” said Cees.
“There is no (financial) need, even now that we are working on the sale of Mitchell van Bergen to Middlesbrough. We’ve come through the Covid year pretty well from a financial point of view.”
