Reports appeared in the beginning of April, claiming Arsenal were interested in signing Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara. Speculation arose at the time about the Finland international being contemplated as a potential replacement for Granit Xhaka, but just as Xhaka started proving his worth by deputizing for Kieran Tierney on the left defensive flank, another report appeared claiming Dani Ceballos would return to Real Madrid when his loan deal expires. So whichever way you look at it, it seems the Gunners might need another player in the middle of the park.
Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara has caught the eye at Arsenal and could return to North London in the near future, according to Glasgow Times.
Kamara took his first football steps with Southend United and joined Arsenal’s Under-18 side in 2012. He later had a brief loan spell back at Southend and then at Colchester United, but in the summer of 2017, he left as a free agent directly from the Under-23 side and moved to Scotland to join Dundee FC. Since arriving to the Ibrox in January 2019, he has been an important member of the team under Steven Gerrard, and has played a big part in their title-winning campaign this term with 43 appearances in all competitions.
A few days ago, I wrote an article on Arsenal boss Unai Emery promoting seven of the clubs most promising youngsters to first-team training. One of those youngsters is highly rated midfielder Gedion Zelalem.
It had slipped my mind that the youngster had in fact been out of action for a massive 16 months. The midfielder sustained a cruciate ligament injury back in an underage tournament playing for the USA under-20 team in May 2017.
Injury has hampered his development
Prior to the injury, Zelalem was regarded as one of the hottest young prospects at the north London club. In fact, the German-born star first burst onto the scene for the Gunners in 2013 as a 16-year-old on their tour of Asia.
According to the Daily Record, Scottish club Rangers could be about to sign Arsenal highly-rated youngster Gedion Zelalem on a season-long loan deal, although a number of English clubs are also believed to be ready to sign the youngster.
The 18-year-old was reportedly in Glasgow yesterday for talks with Gers boss Mark Warburton, who wants to add the youngster to his squad for his teams promotion push. Joined by his father Zelalem was given a tour of the clubs training facilities and the famous old Ibrox Stadium.
