Molineux transfer news: Wolves missed out on 'very consistent' 21-year-old

Wolves manager Bruno Lage on the touchline

Get French Football News features writer Adam White is not surprised that Wolves tried to sign Marseille midfielder Boubacar Kamara in the recent transfer window.

What happened with Wolves' pursuit of Kamara in the summer?

With Kamara entering into the final year of his contract at Marseille this summer, speculation grew towards the end of the transfer window that he could be set for a move away from the club.

Wolves made a late move for his signature as they attempted to bring the 21-year-old over to Molineux on deadline day.

However, it has been revealed that Kamara did not want to move to the Premier League club, and he ended up staying in France.

What has White said about Kamara?

Kamara appears to have put the uncertainty surrounding his future behind him for the moment, as he has been a regular starter in Ligue 1 this term, and the youngster has even captained his team on multiple occasions.

White is a big admirer of Kamara's skillset, and hinted that Kamara would be a good fit for a club like Wolves.

Speaking to GIVEMESPORT about Kamara's qualities, he said: “He’s very, very good in possession and protects his back four really well. He’s very, very consistent and he’s exactly the type of player that would be one of those players that does that job in any team almost. So, there’s a good reason that teams like Wolves are interested.”

Could Wolves make another move for Kamara in the future?

It was only just over a month ago that Kamara turned down a switch to Wolves, so the Premier League outfit may not fancy their chances of getting him to change his mind right now.

However, the France Under-21 international has still not put pen to paper on a new deal at Marseille, meaning that he could be available on a free transfer in 2022, and he may be open to a change of scenery at that stage in his career.

Who did Wolves beat on the opening day of the 2020/21 campaign?

Furthermore, Wolves need to bolster their midfield options sooner rather than later. Bruno Lage's men are still heavily reliant on the Portuguese duo of Ruben Neves and Joao Moutinho in central midfield. Neves was linked with a move away this summer, and there is no guarantee that he'll be at the club for much longer, while Moutinho is into his mid-thirties and his days at the highest level could be numbered.

Freshening things up in the middle of the park should be a top priority for Wolves, and that could mean revisiting their interest in Kamara at some point.
