Arsenal In Duel With Chelsea For 19 Year Old Ligue One Defender

Arsenal are one of four teams that are tracking Marseille defender Boubacar Kamara, according to reports in Italy.

The Gunners are said to be eyeing a summer move for the 19-year-old with the player interesting Chelsea as well as AC Milan and Borussia Dortmund.

Kamara has established himself in the first-team at Marseille, with the teenager having made 23 appearances under manager Rudi Garcia so far this campaign.

The France Under 20 international usually plays as a centre-half but he is also capable of playing on the left-hand side of defence or in midfield.

Kamara’s versatility would certainly make him a useful addition to Unai Emery’s squad, especially if Nacho Monreal is not offered a new contract.

The Spaniard’s current deal expires in the summer and he has been used both as a left-back and a centre-back during his five and a half years at the Emirates.

There had been reports last month that Arsenal had activated an option to extend Monreal’s contract for a further year but that hasn’t been officially confirmed by the club.
