Boubacar Kamara has featured regularly for Marseille since the start of last season.

André Villas-Boas arrived at the Ligue 1 side last summer and has used the 20-year-old as a centre-back and defensive midfielder this season.

Manchester City are one of the clubs who are interested in the versatile player.

This is according to Foot Mercato, who state the Premier League winners follow the France U21 international ‘very closely’.

Apart from Pep Guardiola’s side, Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea are also following him.

Kamara’s contract with Marseille lasts until 2022 and the report also talks about his immediate plans. It’s claimed the player and his entourage have no plans to leave Marseille, ‘no matter what and regardless of the clubs interested’.

The Frenchman’s idea is to feature regularly next season to improve his chances of representing the national team in the European championships in 2021.

Kamara’s plans, however, may not align with that of Marseille due to the latter’s ‘delicate financial situation’.

Foot Mercato claims that with Dimitri Payet being too old and Florian Thauvin struggling to find an exciting project, Kamara can help Marseille raise funds through his sale.

Even though Kamara wants to continue at Marseille, his employer’s financial situation could open the door for Manchester City and other interested clubs to try to sign him when the window opens.
