Former Dundee midfielder Glen Kamara is an £8 million transfer target for Marseille, according to reports in France.
It’s claimed the Finland international – who left Dens Park for Rangers in January 2019 in a £50,000 move – has caught the eye of former Chelsea manager Andre Villas Boas who is now in charge of the Ligue 1 giants.
Former Arsenal kid Kamara has made 45 appearances for Steven Gerrard’s men this season, earning rave reviews for his performances in the Europa League.
Last year he was linked with a move to reigning Serie A champions Juventus.
But Dundee won’t get a slice of any transfer fee involving the 24-year-old, brought to Dens Park by Neil McCann and sold by Jim McIntyre.
There was no sell-on clause included in the deal that took Kamara to Ibrox, with Gers holding a strong hand at the time as he had already signed a pre-contract agreement to head to Govan at the end of the campaign.
In January, McCann told how he was stunned by the player’s talents during his first Dundee training session.
He said: “We had been doing a possession drill and he just didn’t give the ball away — he was exactly what we were looking for at the time.
“Garts [Graham Gartland, McCann’s assistant] just nodded his head and said, ‘This one’s a player, eh?’.
“We couldn’t sign him quickly enough.
“Glen could have taken one look at the place and decided it wasn’t for him.
“We were training at the Riverside training ground, which is never great when it’s windy. But it showed the bravery of the boy to decide that he’d give it a go.
“He could have stayed where he was, earning good money at Arsenal, but he wanted to play.
“He took a punt to come up the road and I admired that about him to start with.”
