Fulham have completed the signing of French forward Aboubakar Kamara from Amiens on a four-year contract, the club confirmed this afternoon.
The 22 year-old striker arrives in London for an undisclosed fee having been close to joining the club in the closing hours of the January transfer window. Kamara, who scored 11 times in 29 appearances as Amiens won promotion from Ligue 2 last season, began his career with Monaco and returned to France in 2016 after a two-year spell with Belgian side Kortrijk. His final goal of the season helped Amiens clinch a remarkable promotion in May, with a stoppage-time winner lifting them up from sixth into the final promotion spot.
Kamara told the Fulham website:
I am delighted to have completed my transfer to Fulham today. Fulham is a Club with a fantastic history and tradition, and I’m looking forward to bringing my qualities to help the team and achieve success.
The striker’s arrival – heralded as ‘a big day for Fulham’ by the club’s vice chairman and director of football operations Tony Khan – finally gives head coach Slavisa Jokanovic further attacking options ahead of the Whites’ opening game of the Championship season against Norwich City on Saturday.
