Wolves in late tussle deadline day tussle to sign Boubacar Kamara

Wolves have been trying desperately to sign a new player on transfer deadline day but sadly for Bruno Lage, it’s looked unlikely.

They’d made a late dart to sign Sven Botman and had also looked at Renato Sanches. However, neither are set to walk through the doors of Molineux.

What’s the word?

Wolves have discovered some alternatives to those two players in the last few hours with Hamza Choudhury believed to be of interest.

However, a fresh rumour has emerged from France where it looks as though they’ve submitted a bid for Marseille defender Boubacar Kamara.

That’s followed up by David Ornstein who reports that Wolves are working on a late deal to sign the midfielder/defender.

He claims that a permanent move could be done before the deadline with the 21-year-old out of contract next summer.

Lage must get him

After moves for Duje Caleta-Car and Botman fell through in the final days of the window, Wolves must ensure they get at least one centre-half in before the market closes.

They have been after Fulham’s Tosin Adarabioyo too but given the potential in Kamara’s locker, he looks like a sensible signing.

Touted as a player who should cost in the region of £50m by scout Jacek Kulig, the youngster is one of the most promising young players in France.

Called an “exciting” talent by Kulig, Kamara was incredibly impressive in the French top tier last season.

Can you guess these obscure Wolves players? Here's the first one...

He completed 86.7% of his passes and also won 1.9 aerial duels per game. For context, only four regular starters at Molineux were more successful when it came to passing. As for headed battles, he’d have ranked fifth.

What is most impressive about Kamara is his tackling rate. The centre-back won a whopping 2.5 challenges per match last term which is bettered by no regular starter at Wolves in 2020/21.

On that evidence, he’d be a fantastic late addition for the Old Gold and one that would surely delight supporters after previous deadline day heartbreak.
