Reports from Greece today claim that Fulham and Aris have finally agreed a fee for the permanent transfer of Aboubakar Kamara.

The Mauritanian international is expected in Greece imminently to finalise the deal, which could be announced within the next 24 hours. Previous talks between the parties had collapsed last month over the structure of a deal to take the 26 year-old forward to Thessaloniki, but today’s coverage suggests that an agreement has now been struck.

Kamara, signed from Amiens for around £5m in July 2017, has scored seventeen goals in 91 appearances for Fulham. He was part of two Championship promotion-winning teams but doesn’t appear to be in Marco Silva’s plans for the forthcoming campaign. His time at Craven Cottage wasn’t short of controversy. Kamara angered Claudio Ranieri after refusing to relinquish penalty taking duties to Aleksandar Mitrovic and missing a spot-kick against Huddersfield and was then involved in a scuffle with the Serbian during a yoga session.

He was loaned out to Turkish side Malatyaspor in January 2018 after being arrested on suspicion actual bodily harm and criminal damage after attacking a security guard as he sought to discuss his future with the club’s hierarchy at Motspur Park before Scott Parker reintegrated him into the first team squad.
