Newcastle United reportedly want to sign Boubacar Kamara in the summer transfer window.
The Lowdown: Kamara impresses
Kamara impressed while playing for Marseille in the 2020/21 season, helping them reach fifth spot in the Ligue 1 table.
He played in 35 matches in total in the division, winning 6.9 of his duels per game while also averaging 2.5 tackles, 1.3 clearances and one interception per match (Sofascore).
The Latest: Cut-price move?
As per The Daily Mail, the St. James’ Park faithful are hoping that they can sign Kamara for a fee in the region of £12m, given that he only has a year left on his current deal in France.
This would certainly be a bargain for the North East club, given that he is currently valued at £33.3m by Transfermarkt.
The Verdict: Sign
If the Tyneside club can end up signing Kamara for £12m, then it would certainly be some shrewd business considering his age and market value.
Once dubbed a ‘phenomenon’ by his former teammate Rolando back in May 2020, the 21-year-old clearly has a lot of potential, and has shown maturity at such a young age by being able to play in a number of different positions (Transfermarkt).
Should Newcastle sign Kamara?
Nonetheless, he will be full of confidence coming off the back of such a good individual season, and is certainly a player that Steve Bruce should be finding room in his squad for.
