Boubacar Kamara will leave OM in the coming days. The midfielder has made his choice and will defend the colors of Aston Villa.
After 170 matches played under the colors of OM, Boubacar Kamara will leave the Marseille city in the coming weeks. At the end of his contract in June, the young Marseillais made this heavy decision to discover a new championship and a new culture, as he recently indicated on Telefoot. It was all about where the 22-year-old would bounce. While the Spanish press reported an agreement closed with Atlético Madrid, the future of Boubacar Kamara will rather be written on the side of the Premier League. In any case, this is what Fabrizio Romano has announced in the last few minutes.

According to information from the Italian journalist, expert in the transfer window, Boubacar Kamara will engage in the next few hours with Aston Villa. Fabrizio Romano specifies that the probable future French international will sign a contract until 2027 with the Birmingham club. In the negotiations, Aston Villa manager Steven Gerrard will have played a decisive role in convincing Kamara to join the Villans, who should be a central part of the project for the former glory of Liverpool. Good news for Aston Villa, which will be able to count on one of the greatest hopes of French football. Bad news on the other hand for OM, who will have to find the means to replace their jewel. One very satisfying thing, however, is the recent qualification of the Marseille club for the Champions League, which will already bring in more than 15 million euros for OM. We should therefore see ambitious Phocaeans this summer during the transfer market. This will be the mission of Pablo Longoria, who has been rather reassuring in the exercise since his arrival on the Canebière in 2020.
