Fulham are the latest club to express an interest in signing Derby County forward Abdoul Camara, according to reports from France this afternoon.
The Guinea international hasn’t started a senior league game since joining the Rams from Angers in January and is surplus to Steve McClaren’s plans at Pride Park. Camara, 26, has made just fourteen appearances for Derby – the last coming in their 0-0 draw against Wigan Athletic on New Year’s Eve – but that hasn’t stopped a host of clubs from queuing up to try and sign him during the January window. Toulouse and Montepellier have began discussions to take Camara back to France, but there is concrete interest from a number of Championship sides including QPR, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Cardiff City.
A deal for Camara might be the easiest way to resolve the current impasse between Derby and Fulham over want-away striker Chris Martin. All parties have to agree to terminate the striker’s loan, but Fulham are currently resisting pressure to annul the season-long agreement after the Scotland international went on strike last week. Camara, who can play up front as well as on the left wing, might fill in a void in Slavisa Jokanovic’s squad as wingers Floyd Ayite and Neeskens Kebano are currently unavailable as they prepare to represent their countries in this month’s African Cup of Nations.
