Wanted: Boubacar Kamara
Chelsea wants to sign Marseille talent Boubacar Kamara.
It’s according to the French publication Le10Sport, who claim that his Premier League rivals, Manchester City, have also expressed interest in the versatile central defender, 20.
Kamara, who can also operate as a defensive midfielder, has risen through the ranks in Marseille after joining the club in 2005 and is now a mainstay of André Villas-Boas’s starting XI.
Marseille finished second in Ligue 1 and qualified for the Champions League after the Coronavirus stopped the season.
Le10Sport says the French international under 21 would like to stay in Marseille, but the financial impact of the pandemic could see him discharged.
The defender made comparisons with veteran Paris Saint-Germain star Thiago Silva.
