CM: Milan and Roma both have eyes on Marseille midfielder valued at €18-20m

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan and Roma are both interested in signing Boubacar Kamara from Marseille as the situation surrounding his future has become clearer, a report claims.

According to, Roma were looking at Ainsley Maitland-Lines as a winter addition but if he were to arrive then the non-EU players for the season would run out, showing the effects of Brexit which could also put a stop to other players like Loftus-Cheek and Winks moving abroad.

Grillitsch of Hoffenheim has been repeatedly linked with Roma (as well as Milan over the summer) but the name now on pole for the Giallorossi is that of Boubacar Kamara, who just like Grillitsch has a deal expiring at the end of the season.

Roma have already dealt with Marseille for Cengiz Under and Pau Lopez – who recently inquired about Diawara – but Kamara’s valuation despite his expiring contract remains around €18-20m. Milan are interested and could try secure Kamara for January given Kessie’s expiring deal and AFCON commitments, but they will seemingly have to make a call soon.

  1. At that price it should be a no-brainer because he can also play CB so in the short term it could be a perfect solution for depth at CB while getting minutes at CM. If Tomori or Romagnoli can’t play in a given game he moves back and Bakayoko or someone else can then play next to Tonali. Then in the summer when we recover Kjaer, and Romagnoli is replaced (or stays) we will already have a him as Kessie’s replacement.

    1. 100 percent agree. I think he should be the first signing we should go for. To add to what you said, he’s young and has plenty of room for growth and will only increase in value, so he is also fits in the Elliott mold

    2. Kamara and Faivre are the two I would look at…and Julian Alvarez. If we can somehow get 2 of them at least on a pre-contract I would be happy. First choice would be Kamara for the reasons you stated
