Arsenal are weighing up a transfer move for former Gunner and current Rangers star Glen Kamara, according to reports.

Arsene Wenger released Kamara in 2017 after he managed just one senior appearances for Arsenal.

Kamara joined Scottish side Dundee before earning a move to Rangers in 2019, where he has flourished under Steven Gerrard.

And the 24-year-old’s performances for Rangers has caught the attention of his former employers, with the Daily Mail claiming Arsenal scouts have watched Kamara in action in his last six appearances.

Rangers paid just £50,000 for Kamara and is considered one of the best defensive midfielders in the Scottish Premiership.

Mikel Arteta is eager to rejuvenate Arsenal and it appears a return to the club for Kamara is on the cards.

Kamara would have impressed Arsenal scouts in his last game, as Rangers secured a vital away win against Celtic in the league.

Arsenal are expected to do some business in January, especially if they lose Granit Xhaka to Hertha Berlin.

The midfielder is desperate to leave Arsenal and his agent made a public plea to the club to allow his player to join Hertha Berlin in January.

Arteta will want a replacement for Xhaka and has also asked for two centre-backs with mounting concerns about the current crop of Arsenal defenders.

An apparent serious injury to Calum Chambers has increased Arsenal’s need for defensive reinforcements and the Londoners have been linked with RB Leipzig’s Dayot Upamecano.
