Wolverhampton Wanderers have reportedly entered into talks with Marseille over Boubacar Kamara.

Foot Mercato claim the Premier League side are showing interest in the 21-year-old.

Wolves are now fast running out of time to sign a central defender.

The club have been linked with a number of players.

Sven Botman of Lille is seemingly too expensive.

And Kamara’s teammate at Marseille Duje Caleta-Car doesn’t seem too keen on a move to the Black Country.

Tosin Adarabioyo has also been linked.

Kamara is a very promising young Frenchman, who also plays in defensive midfield. That is actually the position he mainly played last term.


In total, Kamara has played 125 times for his current club.

A separate report from Foot Mercato has claimed Wolves have made a £2 million loan offer, with a £13 million option to buy.

Wolves need to be decisive

Time is running out and Wolves need somebody in.

Kamara is also being linked with Newcastle United, with the Magpies having apparently made an identical offer according to Foot Mercato.

It remains to be seen if a deal can get done.

Surely there is a decent chance of beating Newcastle to Kamara.

That said, convincing a player to leave a club that will play Europa League football this term may be tricky. Since Wolves cannot offer that, of course.
