NUFC line up bargain move for Ligue 1 star – Club set to cash in at cut-price fee – Report

Newcastle are plotting a cut-price move for highly-rated French wonderkid Boubacar Kamara, according to The Mirror.

The 21-year-old Marseille midfielder – who can also play at centre-back – could be on the move for a cut-price fee due to the financial implications of the pandemic, with Les Olympiens reportedly struggling and in a precarious position financially.

Ligue 1 as a whole has been hit hard by coronavirus due to broadcasting disputes almost curtailing the latter stages of last season, meaning Marseille will sell their star man if an offer of around £15m arrives.

Funds are also expected to be tight on Tyneside this summer if Mike Ashley remains in charge, but a move for Kamara would be seen as a long-term investment for a player who could have a high resale value.

The French U21 international has stacked up an impressive 121 appearances for his boyhood club since bursting into the scene in 2016.

Any potential arrival would likely see him compete with Isaac Hayden for the defensive-minded midfield role at St James’ Park, however he would also give us another option at centre-back – a position Bruce is looking to strengthen this summer.

  1. Let’s buy loads of midfielders and defenders as we’re already spoilt with quality strikers that bag us loads of goals
