The Sun are reporting that Chelsea are the favourites to sign 16-year-old Marseille player Boubacar Kamara, and our local Blues fans here in the Transfer Tavern can’t wait to see him in action if a deal goes through.
According to the report both Paris Saint-Germain and Borussia Dortmund are also keen on signing the Marseille Reserves’ captain, but it is the Blues who are currently leading the race for his signature.
The report suggests that the centre-defender favours a move to the Premier League which would leave Chelsea as the prime candidates for him to sign for, and because he is not currently on a professional contract with Marseille, he could leave with relative ease.
The youngster would be the latest promising player to join Chelsea’s youth set-up that has seen the likes of Kevin De Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku pass through it in recent years, and Antonio Conte will hope that, should he sign, Kamara will reach those kind of heights.
Our landlord here in the Transfer Tavern thinks the club needs to stop signing young talent from abroad, and start utilising the quality talent the club already have at their disposal!
Would he be a good signing Chelsea fans? Let us know below…
