Glen Kamara may snub a move to Arsenal to play Champions League football with Rangers. 

That’s according to former Celtic striker Frank McAvennie, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about Kamara’s future.

A recruitment source has told Football Insider that Arsenal have shortlisted Kamara, 25, as a potential target and are willing to offer him a lucrative five-year deal.

The Finland international spent time in the Arsenal academy earlier in his career but only made one senior appearance for the club.

Kamara has revealed talks have been held over extending his current Ibrox deal and Steven Gerrard is keen to keep him.

Rangers value Kamara at more than £10million after signing him for £50,000 in January 2019.

McAvennie claims Kamara will stay with Rangers for at least one more season, even if Arsenal make an offer.

“The money is at Arsenal, it’s a massive club,” McAvennie told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.

“If Kamara chooses to go, there’s no way Rangers can compete with that. I think he might stay and have a go [in the Champions League].

“He’s a talent in that midfield. He’s a wonderful player and he cost less than £100,000, that’s great business.

“He might want to stay for another year, that’s would not surprise me. But until an offer comes in you can’t tell. 

“Everyone’s got a price and if Arsenal match it then Kamara has to decide.”

Kamara has made 49 appearances for Rangers this season and became a league title winner for the first time.

His only Scottish Premiership goal of the season came in December 2020, when he scored against St Johnstone.
