Aston Villa was once again connected with a move by Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara.
The Finnish International has been in excellent shape since its move to the Ibrox in January of this year and Scottish giants could now try to cash in.
Villa is believed to be on the market for a midfielder after John McGinn fractured his ankle in Southampton’s defeat earlier this month.
A report in the Daily Mail (via HITC) stated that Dean Smith indicated Kamara as his main target for filling the hole left in McGinn’s absence and that Smith is eager to close a deal when opening the window.
Leeds United has also been linked to a move for the 24-year-old, although reports suggest that Marcelo Bielsa is set for a silent window, except for an attacker who arrives if Eddie Nketiah leaves.
Likewise, BirminghamLive he understands that the January window of Villa will be much quieter than the summer – where 12 players have arrived at the cost of almost £ 150 million.
In late November, Gers chief Steven Gerrard confirmed that no offers had been received from the south of the border despite several links.
He said, “We haven’t heard of any interest in the south, but we’ve read tons of it.
“But I wouldn’t be surprised if there was interest in Glen Kamara because he’s an exceptional footballer.”
Juventus was also tied to a move for Kamara, although the Rangers rejected that story, claiming that there was no “truth” in the rumor.
