Arsenal are reportedly plotting a move for Marseille youngster Boubacar Kamara, according to French publication L’Équipe.
The 17-year-old, who is yet to feature for the Ligue 1 outfit first team, is viewed as one of the hottest prospects in France.
The Gunners have contacted Kamara’s representatives and are considering to bring the centre-back to the Emirates Stadium during the January transfer window.
A move to the north London may prove too tempting to turn down for the Frenchman.
The Gunners have a history of grabbing up Marseille’s young players. In 2004, Mathieu Flamini joined and in 2008, Samir Nasri joined the Premier League giants.
