Chelsea have joined Bayern Munich and Barcelona in pursuing Marseille midfielder Boubacar Kamara, according to Footmercato reporter Santi Aouna.
The journalist claims that the Frenchman, who is out of contract in June, won’t leave the Stade Velodrome this month, and the Blues are among the teams to have “already contacted the agent” of the player ahead of a free transfer next summer:
🚨Info : Boubacar Kamara 🇫🇷 ne veut pas quitter l’#OM cet hiver.
• Relation froide avec Pablo Longoria 🇪🇸.
• Le #Bayern, #Barcelone et #Chelsea ont déjà contacté son agent pour l’été prochain. https://t.co/4jRQipo2ga pic.twitter.com/J5Fn2cqlHz

It was reported last year that Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is a big fan of Kamara’s, having originally caught the German’s eye during his time as Paris Saint-Germain head coach.
However, with the France Under 21 international now within the final six months of his deal at Marseille, the competition for his signature is expected to be fierce.
In addition to Bayern and Barca, Manchester United have also been heavily linked with Kamara in recent days. Like Tuchel, manager Ralf Rangnick is said to be a keen admirer of the 22-year-old.
