Aston Villa and West Ham have both made contact with Young Boys over a possible swoop for centre-back Mohamed Camara.
The Lowdown: Villa’s busy summer
Villa haven’t wasted any time in the current transfer window, with two big signings already sealed.
England’s Under-16 captain Josh Feeney could also be making the move from Fleetwood Town, and it seems as if Camara may well be Johan Lange’s next big target.
How many more signings do Villa need this summer?
The Latest: Source shares Camara contact
Camara extended his deal with the Swiss side just last month, however, the report claims they would sell the Guinea international if a convincing offer comes in.
The Verdict: A possible Engels replacement?
Should Villa firm up their interest with a convincing offer that appeals to Young Boys, Camara could end up replacing the outgoing Bjorn Engels.
The Villa defender is set to move to Royal Antwerp after a deal was agreed between the two clubs on Friday, so you’d expect Dean Smith will look to bring in another senior centre-back alongside Ezri Konsa, Tyrone Mings and Kortney Hause.
Camara’s Transfermarkt valuation stands at just £2.7m, but it appears as if it will take a lot more than that to bring him to Bodymoor Heath.
