Corriere dello Sport via MilanLive.it are reporting that Boubacar Kamara from Marseille is a concrete option for AC Milan as they look to reinforce the midfield rotation and get a potential starter for the winter period when Kessie and Bennacer will be absent. Milan’s management have opened contacts with Marseille and the entourage of the player. The club is asking for 25 million euros for the 21 year old who contract expires next summer. Milan are considered to be in a good negotiating position as the player is not planning to renew but face fierce competition from the Premier League for his signature.

Gazzetta dello Sport are similarly observing Milan’s interest in the player and note that it may be complex for Kamara to leave Marseille as it his club since he was young and he came up through their system.

The midfielder played 43 games last season and provided 2 assists in all competitions.
