Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara has confirmed that he attracted interest from across Europe during the summer, but vowed to keep his focus solely on the Scottish side for the time being.

As 90min revealed in August, Kamara received offers from across Europe after the Gers failed to qualify for the Champions League, with Arsenal, Newcastle, Watford and West Ham all voicing an interest.

Rangers were not interested in selling their star midfielder and informed manager Steven Gerrard that talks over a new contract for the 25-year-old, whose deal has two years left to run, would be opened in the near future.

Those negotiations have now begun, although Kamara did his best to give as little away as possible when asked about them.

“There have been talks and they have been on-going," he said (via the Daily Record). "We will see what happens. I can’t really tell you much and I can’t really say more about that. Let’s see what happens.”

Kamara did confess, however, that there had been significant interest in him during the summer, which the Finland international insists is not playing on his mind.

“From what I know, there has been some interest from different teams in different leagues," he continued. “I know that, but my full focus is on the Rangers.

“If something had happened, then it would have happened. But it didn’t happen, and the focus is on Rangers, which is something I look forward to.”

It is believed that Kamara, who has been in Scotland ever since his move to Dundee from Arsenal in 2017, is keen to test himself in a new league at some point in his career, but his focus remains on Rangers for now.

He was an ever-present as his side won the Scottish Premiership title last season, making 51 appearances in all competitions.
