The France Under-21 international has one more year on the contract and they are hoping he can be awarded around £ 12million.
Kamara, 21, can also cover at center-back but made 40 of his 43 appearances last season in a defensive midfielder role.

Newcastle also remain interested in a loan for Manchester United’s Axel Tuanzebe and are in talks to sell Yoshinori Muto, with an interest in Greek club striker Aris Thessaloniki.
Tunazebe played under Bruce on two separate loan spells with Aston Villa in 2018 and 2019.
The 23-year-old was on the outskirts of United’s first team last season, with just four Premier League starts and five more in all competitions.
Bruce reiterated his desire to bring in new players last week and said the club will continue to work on a deal for Willock’s return. The midfielder scored eight goals in 14 games for the Magpies last season.
“Of course we want him to come back, he played well with us and gives us another dimension in midfield that we don’t have,” said Bruce after his side beat Doncaster Rovers 3-2 in of a friendly match last Friday.
“We will continue to laugh at it. “
