Report: West Ham submit bid for Levante ace Victor Camarasa after Bilic's scouting instructions

Levante UD, Ciutat De Valencia

West Ham have reportedly made their first move to sign Levante midfielder Victor Camarasa.

According to the Daily Star, West Ham United have submitted an early offer to sign Levante midfielder Victor Camarasa this summer.

The Hammers have enjoyed a stunning season under Slaven Bilic, and whilst Champions League qualification may be slipping away after a 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace on Saturday, Europa League qualification is very much within each for Bilic and co.

With European football, the new Premier League TV money and the move to the Olympic Stadium all coming this summer, West Ham should be an attractive proposition for many players around the world, especially after witnessing Dimitri Payet's heroics this term.

Now, the Daily Star report that West Ham are attempting to get a head start on the transfer window but making an early bid for Levante star Victor Camarasa.

Camarasa, 21, is a local lad for Levante, but actually began his career with rivals Valencia before heading to Levante aged 18. Now a first-team star for the La Liga side, Camarasa has impressed this season, hitting two goals and three assists.

One of Spanish football's hottest young prospects with three Under-21 caps, Camarasa is a big, strong central midfielder who can play in front of the back four or as a box-to-box midfielder.

It's now believed that West Ham boss Bilic has sent his scouts to watch Camarasa on a number of occasions this season, and has made an early bid to land him during the summer transfer window, with Levante bottom of the La Liga table and four points adrift of safety.
