Kamara came through the ranks at Marseille and made his senior debut during the 2016-17 season. He has since established himself as one of the mainstays of Andre Villas-Boas’ starting eleven.

He has clocked up a total of 79 appearances across all competitions since graduating from Marseille’s youth ranks.

The Blues will push for the signing of Kamara if the club is unable to sign RB Leipzig defender Dayot Upamecano and Lille defender Gabriel Magalhaes.
