Reports in France are claiming Arsenal are keeping tabs on Marseille youngster, Boubacar Kamara.

Arsenal have been linked with a host of French youngsters in the last few weeks and Kamara is the second Marseille player after Maxime Lopez to be linked with a move to the Emirates within a week.

Kamara, a centre back by trade is a less established figure at Marseille than Lopez as he is yet to make his first team debut, but he has caught Arsene Wenger’s attention with his impressive performances in the French club’s academy.

The defender is highly rated at Marseille and they are reportedly preparing to offer him his first professional contract but L’Equipe reckons Arsenal will attempt to convince him to make the switch to the Emirates instead.

Arsenal have built a good scouting network in France over the years and there is every chance that we are interested in Kamara.

Very little is known about the youngster considering he is yet to play in Marseille’s first team but I guess he would have to be very talented for us to be interested in him.

Obviously, if he does make a move to the Emirates, he will not be a member of our first team anytime soon. Arsenal have a lot of youngsters in centre back, the signing of Kamara will increase the competition for places in the future.
