“I’m Ready” Tuchel Favourite Opens Door To 52M Summer Transfer

“I’m Ready” Tuchel Favourite Opens Door To 52M Summer Transfer

Marseille midfielder Boubacar Kamara says he is now “ready” to leave his current club if the opportunity arises this summer.

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel is reportedly a big fan of the 21-year-old, and when asked about his future in a recent interview, the player suggested he would be open to a new challenge:

“I’ve been here since I was very small. I’ve never felt this desire to leave, but I think I’m ready to go pretty much anywhere with what I’ve lived at Marseille.”

Whether the Blues will make a move for Kamara, it remains to be seen. Marseille are believed to be holding out for a fee in the region of €60m (£52m) for the midfielder, so that could prove to be a stumbling block.

The France Under 21 international can also play as a centre-back, but his best performances have been in the middle of the park, and it isn’t an area of the pitch which will be a priority for the Blues in terms of transfer targets.

It could be the case that Kamara is being looked at as a potential long-term replacement for N’Golo Kante, with the World Cup winner having turned 30 last month.
