Wolverhampton Wanderers are eyeing a move for Liverpool teenager Rafa Camacho, who is entering in his last year of contract at Anfield.
According to the Daily Mail, the 19-year-old midfielder has failed to agree to terms on a new contract with Liverpool amid interest from the likes of Wolves, Benfica and AC Milan.
The Portuguese youngster made two appearances for the senior side each in the Premier League and FA Cup, with the latter being an impressive debut for Liverpool against Wolves.
Camacho has 20 goal contributions for the youth team, netting the ball on 12 occasions.
Rafael Camacho would be an exciting addition to Wolves
Wolves are looking to spend big in the summer transfer window in order to avoid doing a Burnley next season. After a successful 2018/19 season, the Black Country outfit will look to build on their recent progress.
Camacho is a versatile youngster who features as a right midfielder, and can play any role in the middle of the pitch. The Portuguese also featured as a right back for the Reds in the FA Cup clash against Wolves which shows his flexibility as a youngster.
Nuno Espirito Santo is the right manager to mould the young Portuguese International into a future superstar. The Wanderers also have a rich Portuguese presence in the dressing room from their manager to the likes of Rui Patricio, Joao Moutinho and Ruben Neves which can make Camacho’s transition away from Merseyside a smooth one.
The Portuguese youngster is noted for his pace, and can give the ball some leather from outside the box. His ability to link up with his teammates and key passes are some other attributes which make the youngster a bright prospect.
Camacho’s speed on the counter-attack, the ability to switch the play, and put in good crosses inside the box make him a threat.
Nuno usually deploys a 3-5-2 or a 3-4-3 which could see Camacho playing higher up the pitch, one of the many reasons his contract extension didn’t end well at Liverpool. He could become a viable backup to the likes of Matt Doherty, and gain much-needed experience from senior guys like Joao Moutinho and Diogo Jota.
Liverpool are asking a £10m fee for the 19-year-old which looks fairly economical for a team building for the future and planning for Europe next season.
