According to Spanish publication Fichajes, West Ham United have targeted Levante midfielder Victor Camarasa as they begin to prepare for their first season in the Olympic Stadium.
The Hammers are said to have already enquired about the Spain Under-21 international, who has previously attracted interest from the likes of Atletico Madrid, Stoke City, Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle United. Reportedly, the relegation-threatened Levante are likely to hold out for 12 million euros (£9.5m), the size of the midfielder’s buy-out clause, but they would be forced to negotiate if they went down.
- This season, the 21-year-old anchorman has played 29 games, scoring twice and registering three assists. He has managed 1.3 tackles and one interception per game this term, averaging a pass completion rate of 85%. Certainly something that could be useful for Slaven Bilic’s men.
- The highly-rated midfielder, who is noted for his ball-winning, positioning and physical abilities, probably would love to move to London as there is almost no chance left for Levante to stay in La Liga.
- With Alex Song likely to leave West Ham at the end of the season, the Spanish player, with a £9.5m buy-out clause, could be a good addition for Bilic, who wants to bolster the squad as the Hammers are very close to qualify for European competitions.
Considering these facts, Gib Football Show concludes that the rumours claiming ‘West Ham Joins Tottenham in the Race for £9.5m-rated La Liga Ace’ are ‘mostly true’.
