CorSport: Milan determined to sign a new midfielder – talks opened over €25m Marseille star

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have begun talks over a deal for Marseille midfielder Boubacar Kamara, according to a report, but a high asking price has been set.

Today’s edition of il Corriere dello Sport (via MilanLive) explains that Milan have been following Kamara for some time as Rossoneri scouts are particularly attentive to the talents who play in France. Not only that, but the paper adds that there have been some contacts involving Paolo Maldini and Frederic Massara in recent weeks.

Marseille are asking for over €25m to sell the the 21-year-old despite the fact his contract expires in June 2022 and he does not seem to be close to a renewal. That means it is a negotiable price though but Milan must be aware of competition, especially from Premier League teams.

Milan want a defensive midfielder who has the physicality and ability to win duels that means they would be a good replacement for Kessie when necessary, and Kamara also offers an additional solution as he can be deployed as a central defender.

  1. This kid is excellent. He can play CB and DM so he can cover both positions – perfect signing to back up Kessie and Benacer and also to cover Kajer and Tomori (along with Kalulu and Gabbia). His signing covers two positions.

    Kamara – DM/CB (20-25M)
    Adil – RW/ACM (8-10M)
    Ikone or Ziyech- RW (25M or loan w/ option to buy)
    Jr. Firpo – LB (loan w/ option to buy)
    Dumphries- RB (15M)
    Giroud – Striker (free) – although I would prefer Edouard (Celtic)
    De Paul – ACM (40M)

    Hakan – free
    Conti – 5M
    Caldara – 8M
    Laxalt – 3M
    Romagnoli – 20-25M (must sell if he doesn’t resign)
    Sammu – 10-15M
    Hauge – 15M (don’t agree to sell but we probably will)

    We can always add a few vets like Baselli we loan out Poegba. We should spend 50-60M on a striker but looks like we will wait till next summer unfortunately. Big risk.

    RW – Rebic/Leao
    Striker – Ibra/Giroud
    LW – Ikone or (Ziyech)/Salesmakers/Adil
    ACM – De Paul/Diaz/Adil
    DM – Kessie/Benacer/Tonali/Kamara/Poegba
    LB – Theo/Junior Fripo
    CB – Tomori/Kajer/Kalulu/Gabbia/Kamara
    RB – Dumfries/Calabria
    GK – Magnian/Tarantasu/?
