Steven Gerrards Aston Villa has now emerged as one of the favourites to sign Boubacar Kamara from Marseille. The Premier League side has been busy in the market in January and wants to add a midfielder before the end of January.
The latest interest from Villa for Kamara came from Fabrizio Romano. The transfer guru reported on one of his Tweets that Aston Villa is eyeing a midfielder before January and Kamara is one on their wishlist.
It has been a busy transfer window for Aston Villa, who have bought Philippe Countinho and Lucas Digne from Barcelona and Everton respectively. Boubacar Kamara could be the final addition before the window closes.
KAMARA ONE OF THE MIDFIELDERS IN ASTON VILLA LIST
Aston Villa has been very aggressive in the transfer market so far. The club seems to be ready to back Steven Gerrard, in their pursuit to push for European qualification. One of the positions the manager wants to add strength now looks to be midfield.
The club has already been linked with Yves Bissouma of Brighton Hove Albion. However, the Mali international could be very costly and hence out of their reach. Rodrigo Bentacaur is another player on their list, but Juventus look unlikely to sell their star in January.
Boubacar Kamara looks to be the latest midfielder the club is showing interest in. The 22-year-old will see his contract end with Marseille in the summer. As a result, Kamara could be available for lower fees as the French side will not want to lose him on a free transfer.
MANCHESTER UNITED AND LEEDS INTERESTED IN KAMARA
But it won’t be easy for Aston Villa to land Kamara. The French midfielder is also garnering interest from other clubs. Leeds United is one of the Premier League sides that are showing interest, with the club looking to bring him before the end of January.
Manchester United is another side that has recently been linked with Boubacar Kamara. The Red Devils have issues in the midfield and manager Ralf Rangnick wants to fix it by bringing reinforcements.
Aston Villa has shown that they have enough pulling power in the transfer market by bringing in Countinho and Digne. With a strong ambition to push for the European places and with the opportunity to gain minutes in Premier League, Villa is an excellent option for Kamara.
