Tottenham handed a boost in move for talented Spanish midfielder

Levante UD, Ciutat De Valencia

Levante are already lining up a replacement for Tottenham target, Victor Camarasa.

It's no secret that Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino is planning a summer clear out, after the Daily Mail highlighted no fewer than six players, who look set to leave White Hart Lane.

Emmanuel Adebayor, Paulinho, Roberto Soldado, Moussa Dembele, Etienne Capoue, Vlad Chiriches and Aaron Lennon, are all considered surplus to next season's plans, as far as the Argentine coach is concerned, as he prepares to completely rejuvenate his squad with new talent.

Amongst the players who Spurs have been keeping a keen eye on, over recent months, is Levante midfielder Victor Camarasa. A player who certainly fits the bill, in terms of his excellent potential.

The Spain Under-21 international has enjoyed a quality season with Levante, since being given a key first-team role by manager, Lucas Alcaraz, who has shown plenty of faith in the qualities of the young player.

Principally a defensive oriented central midfielder, Camarasa has usually been deployed as either the holding midfielder in front of a back four, or as part of a double-pivot pairing, with emphasis on his tough tackling as a key to winning possession back from rivals.

Inevitably though, with consistently strong performances, comes a level of acceptance from Levante, that holding onto their brightest talent for much longer, will prove highly difficult.

As such, Levante are already planning for life after Camarasa. According to Marca, the Valencian club have now stepped up their bid to sign 28-year-old Almería midfielder, Verza, who is available on a free transfer in the summer.

Verza has been offered a significant salary increase as an incentive, along with a four-year contract, as Levante look to seal the deal as quickly as possible.

However, Tottenham and Pochettino will need to move swiftly, if they're to sign Camarasa. The 20-year-old has also attracted keen interest from La Liga sides Atletico Madrid and Sevilla, who are both keen to strengthen in midfield, and particularly with homegrown players.

Whilst Camarasa has a contract until 2019 at the Ciutat de Valencia, and a release clause valuing him at €12 million, Levante are unlikely to refuse an offer of around half that amount, along with the sweetener of performance related additions.
