Fulham complete signing of Amiens star for reported fee of £5.35m

Fulham have completed the signing of Aboubakar Kamara for a reported fee of £5.35m, after the striker agreed an initial four-year contract with the Londoners.

Kamara scored 11 goals in 29 appearances as Amiens secured promotion to Ligue 1 for the first time in their history last season, but he will play no part in the big adventure which awaits the club in the coming months. Instead, he will help the Cottagers in their quest to clinch a promotion of their own.

“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,” said Kamara, who progressed through the youth system at current champions Monaco.

The 22-year-old failed to make an impression at Stade Louis II, playing just twice in the league before moving to Belgium where he linked up with KV Kortrijk. Although he failed to score in 12 matches, he finally proved his quality with Amiens last season which caught the attention of Fulham.

Kamara becomes the sixth signing of the summer for Slavisa Jokanovic, who has also signed Marcelo Djalo, Ibrahima Cisse, Lucas Piazon, Oliver Norwood and Tomas Kalas. The Cottagers begin their Championship campaign on Saturday afternoon when Norwich City visit the capital.
