Chelsea look to sign Kamara
Chelsea have a transfer boost in search of a midfielder, as Kamara is available for transfer at a lower price.
Marseille have offered the 21-year-old to different clubs, but there are no bids for Kamara so far. The club is thinking of raising the price for Kamara due to the ongoing financial crisis faced by clubs. Thus, he can be a good source of income for them.
However, the French midfielder can leave Marseille for as little as €15 million ( €12.8 million ) plus add-ons.
It’s not only Chelsea who are looking to sign Kamara to England. According to Mirror, the Premier League club Newcastle United signed a €15 million deal for midfielder amid the Ligue 1 crisis caused by Covid-19.
Kamara has played 43 games for Marseille in all competitions last season and has proved an important asset for the club.
Kamara is described as Marseille’s technical destroyer by the fans in the 2020-21 Ligue 1 season.
The midfielder is ranked in top echelons when it comes to tackles and the number of touches on the ball.
