Newcastle United are reportedly eyeing up a cut-price move for Boubacar Kamara in the summer transfer window.
The Lowdown: Centre-back and midfielder eyed
Given that Kamara is capable of playing both as a centre-back and central midfielder, Steve Bruce may be looking to kill two birds with one stone with his potential signing.
The Latest: Kamara interest
As per The Daily Mirror, Bruce is interested in a move for Kamara, who is in the final year of his current deal with Marseille.
The 21-year-old is duly thought to cost in the region of £15m, which could present a bargain to Newcastle given that he is currently valued at £33.3m by Transfermarkt.
Both Liverpool and Manchester City are also monitoring the player, but the Tyneside club may be able to pounce on his signature as neither of the other two clubs has firmed up on their alleged interest.
The Verdict: Bargain
The fact that the Magpies could get Kamara for essentially half of his market value presents itself to be a real bargain.
Once described as a ‘phenomenon’ by his former team-mate Rolando in May 2020, he is still only 21 years of age, and so it is scary to think how good he could be in the future.
Should Newcastle sign Kamara?
The Frenchman played in 35 Ligue 1 games in the 2020/21 season, winning 6.9 of his duels per match while also averaging an impressive 2.5 tackles, 1.3 clearances and one interception per game (Sofascore).
He could be a very smart signing by the Magpies at just £15m if they get the deal over the line.
