According to the Daily Mail, West Bromwich Albion are plotting a move for Fulham attacker Aboubakar Kamara in January.
Leeds United should hijack their promotion rival’s interest in the controversial forward, who had an excellent track record in Fulham’s play-off winning campaign.
The Frenchman has endured a whirlwind debut Premier League season, scoring three times for the Whites in the league while also clashing with players, staff, and the manager in SW6.
Kamara’s struggles culminated in his arrest last week after a training ground scuffle ended in the Fulham player being arrested.
Although Claudio Ranieri opened up a potential way back in for Kamara, a move away from Craven Cottage to the Championship appears the most likely route for the mercurial winger.
Kamara was signed by the Whites in the summer of 2017, enduring a tough transition to English football in much of his first season with Fulham.
Yet towards the end of the 2017/18 campaign, Kamara played a vital role in Fulham’s promotion, starring from late April onwards and starting the play-off final triumph over Aston Villa.
While in the Premier League, Kamara has been one of the few Fulham players with the requisite phsyical attributes to keep up in the top flight, terrorising defences with his power and pace. Furthermore, the winger has a impressive repertoire of close control and creative feints, combined with powerful finishes, that would present Leeds with a potent attacking threat.
Although Marcelo Bielsa would be reluctant to insert the Frenchman into the starting lineup right away, Kamara has shown he can be a deadly attacking option off the bench in the latter stages of matches.
Leeds would do well to gamble on Aboubakar Kamara and add the unpredictable forward to their ranks as the club chases promotion to the Premier League.
