Arsenal and Chelsea set to make approach for in-demand Frenchman

February 7, 2019

Arsenal Dortmund and Chelsea have all expressed strong interest in securing services of Marseille defender Boubacar Kamara.

According to the Calciomercato reports, all three clubs could make moves to get the deal done for the defender when the summer transfer window will be re-opened.

The French defender is attracting a wealth of interest as he continues to impress in the Ligue 1 and has already drawn comparisons to one of the best defenders in the world Thiago Silva, a centre-back who has dominated the French top-tier during his time at the team.

Silva’s former team AC Milan are also believed to be in the running to secure the services of Kamara from Marseille.

The French team are believed to be trying to tie the player down to a new contract following interest from the hosts of European teams. His current deal set to end in 2020 and talks are believed to be ongoing regarding improved terms.

However, the report does hint that the Marseille may well struggle to keep hold of the player for long with interest rising.
