Newcastle United are reportedly now ‘on the lookout’ to sign Boubacar Kamara before the summer transfer window ends.
The Lowdown: ‘Good discussions’
Should Newcastle sign Kamara?
He would not mind changing teams, and so a deal could still be possible before the window shuts.
The Latest: ‘On the lookout’
The Magpies are now said to be ‘on the lookout’ to sign Kamara, and retain an interest in him, although they are looking more for a ‘box-to-box’ midfield player.
Marseille would be looking for a fee in the region of €15m (£12.9m) from the North East club should they follow up their interest in the Frenchman.
The Verdict: Sign
For a player who is currently rated at £33.3m by Transfermarkt, to get Kamara for potentially as little as £12.9m could turn out to be a real bargain for the Tyneside club.
Once dubbed a ‘phenomenon’ by his former teammate Rolando back in May 2020, he still has a lot of potential at just 21 years of age, and his value will only increase.
Nonetheless, playing for an established European club in Marseille, Kamara should have little problem in adapting to life in the Premier League, and could be a valuable addition to Steve Bruce’s squad.
