In July 2017 the Club announced the arrival of forward Aboubakar Kamara from SC Amiens.
Kamara began his career at Monaco. After scoring regularly for the club’s B team, he made his Ligue 1 debut against Lyon in September 2014.
At the end of the season he joined Belgian Pro League side KV Kortrijk on a permanent transfer, before returning to France a year later with Ligue 2 outfit Amiens.
2016/17 was a highly productive one for the forward, as he helped Amiens win promotion to the top flight for the first time in their history.
The Ligue 2 campaign ended in remarkable fashion. Deep into stoppage time in the season finale, Amiens were drawing 1-1 at Reims after Kamara’s opener - his 11th league goal of the season - had been cancelled out, meaning they would finish sixth in the standings.
But a 96th minute winner earned them the three points and catapulted them up to second, ensuring automatic promotion.
In his first season in SW6 he scored seven times in our successful promotion charge.
In January 2019, he joined Yeni Malatyaspor for the remainder of the season, but was soon back at Craven Cottage, penning a new deal at the end of the year.
