Towards the end of the summer window, Newcastle United tried to sign Boubacar Kamara, but he was not in favour of leaving Marseille.
The Magpies followed the midfielder for ‘many months’ and their verbal offer of €14m was deemed too low by the French club.
Things have changed at St James’ Park since then and fresh from their takeover, Newcastle’s new owners have considerable funds to attract top talents from Europe.
Kamara still remains on the agenda of the Tyneside side, according to La Lazio Siamo Noi.
The website, which focuses its coverage on Lazio, details the Italian capital club’s plans for the winter market. Gonzalo Escalante’s future seems to be away from the Serie A side and if he leaves, Lazio will have to find a replacement.
Danilo Cataldi is operating in the defensive midfield position this season, where Maurizio Sarri also has the services of Lucas Leiva. The Brazilian’s contract expires in 2022 and with no signs of a renewal, Lazio could look to bring in a new midfielder in January.
This is where Kamara fits in and the Marseille player is a ‘big dream’ for the Biancocelesti. However, it will be ‘difficult’ for Lazio to sign Kamara since he has ‘rich offers’ from England, ‘especially from Newcastle’.
There’s no mention whether or not Kamara has accepted any of the offers so far.
