The Finland international is still with Scottish Premiership title holders Rangers but Kamara has confirmed feelers were put out by clubs from different countries as they looked to negotiate a switch.
Newly-promoted Watford were also keen on the defensive midfielder ahead of the new campaign getting underway, while Arsenal also considered a move after growing frustrated in their pursuit of Wolverhampton Wanderers' Portugal international Ruben Neves.
Reports suggest the Gunners, who were hoping to seal Kamara's return after seeing him come through the north London club's academy, even offered the Rangers ace a five-year contract as they looked to get the deal over the line.
Kamara has insisted that he is committed to Rangers, who have opened talks over a new contract as his current deal expires in 2023, despite summer interest also coming from Aston Villa, Brentford and Ukrainian outfit Dynamo Kiev.

"There was such interest in him from across Europe and a few clubs in the Premier League that I thought he would go and it just didn't materialise."
