Kamara sparks interest

Italian outfit Salernitana are the latest club to join the race for Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara, according to 90 minutes.

The Finland international continues to attract mainstream attention, with a host of clubs across Europe reportedly interested in signing him away from Ibrox this summer.

Galatasaray have already seen two offers rejected for the 26-year-old, while RB Leipzig, Eintracht Frankfurt and Marseille are also monitoring his situation.

Closer to home, English Premier League sides Nottingham Forest, Bournemouth and Brighton are also said to have been searching.

For their part, Rangers would value the player at around £10m.

Hoops rejects Walsh’s offer

Celtic have reportedly rejected a bid from Ligue 1 club Toulouse for defender Stephen Welsh, Daily recording.

The French company is said to have submitted a loan offer including an option to buy worth around £3.5m, plus add-ons.

Hoops boss Ange Postecoglou, however, sees the 22-year-old as part of his plans at Glasgow and is reluctant to part ways with him this summer following his influential role in last season’s title success.

Foxes are not for O’Riley

According to 67 Hail Hail, Leicester City have “no interest at the moment” in signing Celtic midfielder Matt O’Riley.

The 21-year-old has been linked with a move to King Power Stadium at various times this summer as the Foxes have yet to sign any new players since the transfer window opened.

But despite widespread speculation linking them with a swoop for the Denmark youth international, it is claimed there is no substance to such reports.

For his part, O’Riley has played down the prospect of his departure from the Bhoys in the coming weeks.

Talk to Boldhe said: “I’ve heard a bit about interest from Leicester, but it’s not something I’m thinking about at the moment. The transfer window is pretty crazy with rumors and interest, but I’m aware that Leicester likes me.

“At the moment, however, I think Celtic are a good place to be. I have good friends around me, my relationship with the coach is good and the fans are very special. I think Celtic is the perfect place for me, but of course it’s great to have interest because it means I’m playing well.

“I also think it’s good for Celtic because it shows we have good players here. It just means we have to keep playing the way we do.

“Yes, definitely (I expect to be at Celtic for the new season). It’s a huge club, and now we have to play the Champions League against a lot of big clubs. It’s a big dream for me. »
