Tottenham are scouring La Liga for prospective summer signings, with Levante midfielder Víctor Camarasa the latest catching their eye.

20-year-old Levante midfielder and Spain U21 international, Víctor Camarasa, is the latest of a growing list of La Liga targets on the Tottenham transfer radar, according to Valencian sports daily SuperDeporte.

According to the reports, a scout from Tottenham was paying particularly close attention to the performance of Camarasa, who is steadily developing a growing reputation in La Liga.

Initially starting out in the youth ranks at city rivals Valencia, at 17-years-old he wasn't considered good enough to make the grade, so moved across town to Levante for a second chance. It's certainly one he didn't waste.

Through his hard work and effort with the Levante B team, Camarasa earned his first-team début with a starting appearance in December 2013, as hist side slipped to a 1-0 first-leg defeat at Recreativo de Huelva in the Copa del Rey. Individually he did enough to impress, signing a six-year deal just two days later and over the remainder of last season, made a total of 9 appearances.

This season has seen his opportunities increase and particularly since the arrival of Lucas Alcaraz as Levante manager. Camarasa has continued to shine in midfield, making 16 appearances in La Liga, scoring 2 goals, also getting a further 4 outings in the Copa del Rey. Very much a rising star in the Spanish game, his exploits have also earned him a début in the ranks of 'La Rojita' internationally with the U21 side.

Levante know they've got a gem on their hands, which is why Camarasa currently has a contract until June 2019 and with a minimum release clause of €12 million, although there's scope for negotiation given the tight purse-strings at the Ciutat de València.

Tottenham may keep a keen eye on further performances, as their scout will have undoubtedly ticked many boxes, in what was an impressive display from Camarasa last Friday night, as he helped Levante to a 2-1 victory against Eibar, which lifted them out of the relegation zone in La Liga.
