Aston Villa are showing an interest in signing influential Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara, according to the Daily Mail.
The Villans are looking to establish themselves in the Premier League this term, and have made a decent enough start in terms of doing that, however if they are going to ensure their survival, they may need to continue to reinforce in January.
With that in mind, attentions are already turning to who Villa might look to when the transfer window reopens, and the Finland international is said to be one man they are tracking.
The former Arsenal trainee is a solid figure in the centre of the park, and although Villans boss Dean Smith has a few options in that area of the pitch, they lack the strength and power of the 23-year-old.
Kamara has stood out at Ibrox this term, where he has controlled the midfield for Steven Gerrard’s men, and allowed them to establish themselves in a title race north of the border.
Smith brought in Marvelous Nakamba and Douglas Luiz in the summer, but neither of them have pulled up any trees, and both have left their defence exposed at certain times, something Villa can ill afford if they are to stay in the top flight.
Were the Villans to lure Kamara to Villa Park, they would get a player who has composure beyond his years and a level headed approach, which has already seen him become an important component in the Finland side, who are on the verge of qualifying for Euro 2020.
Rangers signed Kamara for just £50,000 in January, and are likely to receive an awful lot more than that should they sell him at any point.
One reason for that is because as well as Aston Villa, the likes of Crystal Palace and Brighton and Hove Albion are also said to be interested him, which could see a bidding war generated.
