Leeds: Journalist backs Whites to sign Boubacar Kamara -Leeds United Transfer Rumours

Marseille midfielder Boubacar Kamara would be an ideal signing for Leeds United in the January transfer window, according to journalist Pete O’Rourke.

The Lowdown: Midfielder needed at Leeds

The Whites are yet to sign anyone this month but there is a clear need for at least one new central midfielder to be added to the squad. Kalvin Phillips is still out of action for a while with a hamstring injury and it is vital that Leeds fill the void left by the England international’s enforced absence.

One player with whom they have been linked is Kamara, who continues to impress for Marseille, making 17 Ligue 1 appearances so far this season.

The Latest: Journalist backs Kamara move

O’Rourke sees the Frenchman as an ideal candidate to join Leeds in January, and he talked up the potential move when speaking to GiveMeSport.

The journalist claimed: “Yeah, he would fit the profile for what Leeds are looking for, especially with Kalvin Phillips being out injured. A defensive midfielder who can also slot in centre-back, if needed.”

The Verdict: Ideal midfield option

Kamara looks a great option for Leeds to sign, although it could be difficult to get the deal over the line, given the likely fee required (£10m) and interest from other clubs such as Manchester United.

The 22-year-old would bring plenty of defensive quality to the holding midfield role, having averaged 1.5 tackles and one interception per game in the league this season. Kamara has also been hailed as a ‘phenomenon’ by former teammate Rolando, which further speaks volumes about the quality of player Leeds could potentially sign.

With Phillips sidelined for another few weeks and O’Rourke believing that the Frenchman would “fit the profile” of what the Whites want, they must push hard to try and get this deal done in January.
