French football expert Adam White believes Arsenal could sign sought-after midfielder Boubacar Kamara for a bargain fee.
The 21-year-old is on the radar of a host of clubs after impressing for Marseille last season, where he made 43 appearances.
According to Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport, Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta rates Kamara highly and is keen to welcome him to the Emirates Stadium. However, the report confirms the Gunners are joined by Italian sides AC Milan and Lazio in the race to sign the defensive midfielder.
Would Kamara be a success in the Premier League?
Newcastle United have reportedly already launched a bid for Kamara, who has entered the final year of his contract at Marseille.
However, Get French Football News’ White is confident that Kamara would opt for a move to north London instead of Tyneside. The France under-21 international, who can also play at centre-back, is available for a cut-price fee due to his current contract situation.
He told The Transfer Tavern: “I think Marseille will sell Kamara because his contract is expiring and they need to. They’ve spent a surprising amount on transfers this summer for a club that was supposedly in some financial difficulties beforehand.
“I think £15million, perhaps with bonuses, is an absolute steal for Kamara.
“Would he be interested in going to Arsenal or Newcastle? My reading of the situation is that he would see Arsenal as a nice move.”
