Arsenal join Chelsea in race to sign ‘new Thiago Silva’


The rumor mill regarding Arsenal is never going to stop so, fans should get used to the club being linked to a host of players.

One of the newer ones to be linked is Boubacar Kamara, a French center back who plays for Marseille in Ligue 1.

And as per reports from Calcio Mercato, the North London club are among the clubs who have taken a serious interest in signing the 19-year-old defender.

The report further states that there is a significant amount of competition from the likes of Chelsea, Borussia Dortmund as well as AC Milan. Marseille’s technical assistant, Claude Fichaux, compares Karama to Thiago Silva in terms of his elegance and ability to read the game.

Kamara has had a breakout season in which he has gone on to establish himself as a key member of the Marseille back line.

He is good at reading the game and is quite a good tackler to boot. As with any modern center back worth his salt, he is also incredibly comfortable on the ball. These are some of the reasons as to why Arsenal are targeting the youngster but they face some stiff competition.

If the Gunners are able to beat such rivals and get Kamara to come to the Emirates, it will be quite an achievement as the youngster is so highly rated.

The other major factor regarding this deal is that the defender’s contract will expire in the summer of 2020. This may see the French club look to capitalize on his current value and sell him to the highest bidder.

If that happens to be the Gunners, then it will be a big boost to the transfer ambitions of the club and what they are planning for the future.

Defense is one area where Arsenal are in real need of some form of reinforcements and getting a player such as Kamara who has so much potential, is a step in the right direction.
