Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara has been tipped for a future Premier League move by Finland teammate Teemu Pukki, the Daily Record reports.
The Norwich striker believes his compatriot has what it takes to play in the English top flight, having played alongside him on the international stage for the last three years.
The duo have featured heavily for their country in their current UEFA Nations League campaign, with Markku Kanerva’s side sitting second in League B Group 4.
And Kamara’s performances in midfield have convinced former Celtic man Pukki that he could hold his own in the Premier League.
“Glen is a top player and I think he would definitely do well in the English Premier League,” said Pukki, quoted by the Daily Record.
“I’d bet on him playing there at some point in his career.”
The central midfielder has been a key figure for Steven Gerrard’s outfit this season, both domestically and in Europe.
He’s featured in nine of his side’s 10 league games to help Rangers to top spot in the Scottish Premiership, as well as playing every minute of the club’s successful Europa League qualifying campaign.
The 24-year-old made the switch to Ibrox from Dundee in January 2019, having spent several years in Arsenal’s academy in his youth.
He is preparing to face fierce rivals Celtic in club action this weekend, but first has an important task at hand for his country.
Both Kamara and Pukki look set to feature for Finland when they host the Republic of Ireland in their Nations League meeting on Wednesday.
They beat Stephen Kenny’s outfit 1-0 in the reverse fixture in Dublin last month, having lost 1-0 at home to Wales three days before.
But a 2-0 victory over Bulgaria on Sunday has put them in a strong position in the group, four points ahead of their upcoming opponents and just one behind leaders Wales.
