West Ham not giving up just yet on signing 'sensational' Boubacar Kamara on a free transfer

West Ham United still haven’t given up on signing Marseille ace Boubacar Kamara on a free transfer in the summer.

That’s according to a report from Goal who claims that the Hammers are still in the mix for the 22-year-old’s signature.

It is stipulated that Atletico Madrid are leading the race for Kamara’s signature. The likes of Manchester United, Bayern Munich and Tottenham are also thought to be chasing the young Frenchman’s signature.

There is obviously strong competition for his signature but the Hammers really should be going all out to bring him to East London.

Kamara has everything that David Moyes likes in a player and it seems as though the Scot is not giving up on bringing the 22-year-old to the London Stadium just yet.

West Ham still in Boubacar Kamara free transfer race

Goal suggest that the Hammers still hold out hope of bringing the talented defensive midfielder to East London in the summer transfer window.

And if we somehow manage to fight off competition for Kamara’s signature, what an unbelievable addition he would be to Moyes’s ranks at West Ham.

Kamara is a special, special talent and he is one of the few players on the planet who could actually replace Declan Rice if the unthinkable does happen and he ends up leaving the London Stadium.

The Marseille defensive midfielder would undoubtedly take us to another level entirely. He is a quite brilliant young player and Milan Reports describe the Frenchman as a ‘sensational’ talent.

In 25 Ligue 1 appearances for Marseille this season, Kamara has averaged two tackles and 1.2 interceptions per match. He’s made 65.6 passes on average per game and has recorded an incredibly successful completion rate of 90.1% (Who Scored).

The 22-year-old is energetic, dynamic and would add some much needed athleticism and bite to West Ham’s central midfield ranks.

Kamara is allegedly demanding £150k-a-week from his potential suitors (The Sun). Considering the fact that he’s available on a free transfer in the summer, West Ham should be more than comfortable paying him that kind of salary.

The Marseille ace is one of the very best at what he does in world football. He is very much a defence-minded central midfielder and would provide a really solid level of cover for our defenders.

The 22-year-old Frenchman would be an exceptional addition for the Hammers. We think that there is every chance that this one will happen. Let’s just hope that he’s signed as competition for Declan Rice and not as a replacement for him!
