Arsenal and Manchester City are keeping tabs on Marseille youngster, Boubacar Kamara, according to reports.
The defender is one of Marseille’s most promising youngsters despite not making his first team debut yet and the French club are reportedly preparing to offer him his first professional contract to ward off interest in his services.
Kamara has impressed scouts with his performances for Marseille’s academy and Arsenal are now closely monitoring his situation.
According to L’Equipe via Shoot.co.uk, Manchester City have already contacted the player’s parents on Facetime via an IPhone in a bid to put themselves in the leading position to sign the defender.
Kamara is regarded as one of the best emerging talents in France and City are keen to swoop for his services ahead of Arsenal.
Arsenal have built a good scouting network in France over the years which has helped us sign some of the country’s best talents, so it is not surprising if we are really interested in Kamara.
Although Very little is known about the lad considering he is yet to play in Marseille’s first team, I guess he is a very talented player for two Premier League giants to be following him closely.
Marseille want the youngster to continue his development with them and have offered him a professional contract. Like we all know, that wouldn’t be enough to deter suitors as Arsenal in particular are more than capable of matching whatever they have offered him.
However, we will have to wait to find out if Wenger would make a firm offer to sign Kamara. If he does happen that he makes a move to the Emirates, he will be regarded as a signing for the future and will team up with other youngsters at our academy.
