Noel Whelan urges Leeds to move for ‘quality’ Rangers midfielder
Pundit Noel Whelan has urged Leeds United and Marcelo Bielsa to move for Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara in the upcoming transfer window.
Speaking to Football Insider, the former Whites striker revealed that boss Bielsa will be a big fan of the Finnish ace as the Argentine looks set to bolster his midfield in the summer. The Daily Mail revealed earlier this month that Rangers are fighting to hold onto Kamara despite interest from Leeds.
Despite this, however, there has been no agreement in place between the 25-year-old and the club to extend his current contract which is set to expire in 2023.
As such, a number of clubs are said to be monitoring the situation.
However, Whelan feels that Leeds should be moving for Kamara.
He said: “He brings quality, Steven Gerrard recognises how important he is to Rangers.
“Thats why he wants to tie him down on a new contract. Good players will always be looked at and thats the problem.
“What hell bring is energy, aggression, quality passing and Marcelo Bielsa likes players with energy, players who can get around the field.
“He would bring those fitness levels and also quality and competition to that midfield position.”
Kamara has featured for Rangers 30 times so far, in what has been a successful season for the Glasgow outfit, who ended a 10-year wait to win their 55th Scottish top-flight title.
He has registered two goals for Gerrards side from midfield, most notably scoring a long-range effort against Benfica in the Europa League.
The midfielder would be a perfect fit at Elland Road due to his ability to be deployed as a central midfielder or as a defensive one – a pivotal role in Bielsas acclaimed 4-1-4-1 formation.
Currently occupying the defensive midfield role in Bielsas side, Kalvin Phillips two-and-a-half-year development under the Argentine has been revelationary, earning him his first England call-up earlier this season.
One area where the Whites have struggled this season, however, is finding suitable cover for Phillips when hes been sidelined with injury, and Kamara could be just the man to fill the void.
In addition, with marquee signing Rodrigo Moreno struggling with a number of injuries so far and inconsistent performances from Mateusz Klich this season, the Whites have been unable to solidify a frequent partner for Northern Ireland ace, Stuart Dallas in the middle of the park.
Should he arrive at Elland Road this summer, Kamara would be a welcomed addition to Bielsas squad.
