Watford join Arsenal in hunt for Glen Kamara, as Euro 2020 performances continue to turn heads

 

Premier League newcomers Watford are expressing a keen interest in the signature of Rangers star Glen Kamara, according to reports.

Rangers standout

Finnish international Kamara lit up the Scottish football landscape once again this past season.

After initially making the move up north to join Dundee in 2017, the all-action midfielder’s impressive displays were quickly picked up on by giants Rangers.

In turn, the 25-year-old swapped the Kilmac Stadium for Ibrox a little over two years ago, and has since not looked back.

Kamara has established himself as an absolutely crucial cog at the heart of a fine Rangers side, which of course romped to the Scottish Premiership title under Steven Gerrard’s watch this season.

All told, the ex-Southend talent racked up 51 appearances across all competitions in 2020/21, notching two goals and two assists along the way.

Hornets join the hunt

Such impressive exploits on the part of the Rangers star, though, have not gone at all unnoticed back down south.

Kamara is actually a product of the Arsenal youth system, having been on the books of the Gunners for 5 years from 2012 to 2017.

Following a pair of loan spells away from north London, the midfielder was eventually allowed to depart on a permanent basis, without having made a single Premier League appearance.

Recent months, however, have seen speculation mount that Mikel Arteta and co. are expressing a keen interest in luring Kamara back to his former stomping ground.

And, as outlined above, this weekend, another of the Premier League’s clubs have been tipped to join Arsenal in the pursuit of the Finn.

As per a report from the Daily Mail, Watford are considering a swoop for Kamara, following their return to the top-flight of English football.

Hornets boss Xisco is desperate to add a deep-lying midfielder to his squad ahead of next season, with Kamara, on the back of a pair of starring performances for his country at Euro 2020, having been identified as the ideal addition.

The 25-year-old’s contract situation makes him an even more appealing target, with Kamara’s terms at Ibrox, as things stand, due to expire in 2022.
