Tottenham line up transfer for Ligue 1 star as Man Utd and Bayern Munich consider late hijack


Tottenham are reportedly interested in signing Marseille midfielder Boubacar Kamara, however, they will face competition for his services from Manchester United and Southampton. The Frenchman is out of contract at the end of the season.

Kamara has spent his entire career thus far with Marseille after coming through their academy. But with his current deal at the Stade Velodrome set to expire in the summer the 22-year-old could be on his way to the Premier League.

According to Goal, as well as the aforementioned trio Atletico Madrid and Bayern Munich are also interested in his signature. Kamara can play at centre-back or as a defensive midfielder and has made over 150 appearances for Marseille.

Spurs are set for a busy summer in order to match the ambitions of manager Antonio Conte after the Italian criticised the business the club conducted in January. The north Londoners let a number of squad players leave but only brought in Dejan Kulusevski and Rodrigo Bentancur.

The former Juventus duo have proved to be instant successes in north London and Conte will no doubt look to strengthen further when the transfer window opens. However, Atletico appear to be the favourites to land Kamara.

Whilst the Spanish giants cannot offer the same kind of financial package as their English counterparts, they remain hopeful that their consistent competitiveness at the top of La Liga and in the Champions League will convince the young midfielder to choose their project.
