Kamara's impressive performances have seen him court interest from Europe's big guns - including Barcelona, Wolves, and Newcastle United.

Barca were believed to be the leading contenders for the services of the 22-year-old but reports now suggest they have fallen behind the Red Devils.

SPORTbible claims United are now in a pole position to complete the signing of the Frenchman in the first few days of the January window transfer.

According to the publication citing Daily Express, the Old Trafford dwellers are already in advanced talks to seal the transfer.

The central midfield position is understood to be one of the key areas of focus to strengthen at Old Trafford, with Ralf Rangnick keen to solidify the department.

West Ham United's Declan Rice had previously been touted as an ideal candidate for the role, but the Hammers' demand of £80million for his services is likely to be an obstacle.

Kamara, therefore, represents a cheaper option for United, with the midfielder free to talk to other clubs next month given his contract at the Stade Velodrome expires in June 2022.

Should the Marseille star complete a move to Old Trafford in January, he would become Rangnick's first signing at the club.
