Wolverhampton Wanderers are now leading the chase to sign Liverpool wonder kid Rafa Camacho with his demands proving to be a little too rich for AC Milan, according to Calciomercato.

The 18-year-old made his first-team debut for Liverpool since the turn of the year, featuring in January’s FA Cup defeat to Wolves in January before coming off the bench to play in the Premier League for the first time in a thrilling win against Crystal Palace.

 

But despite clearly being highly rated by manager Jurgen Klopp, Camacho appears to be open to a move away from Anfield with just a year remaining on his contract.

Calciomercato reports that it is ‘unlikely’ that Camacho will extend his deal, with Wolves looking to snap up another of Portugal’s most exciting talents after previously luring Ruben Neves, Diogo Jota and Ruben Vinagre to Molineux.

The report even adds that Wolves are the front-runners as thing stand. Italian giants AC Milan are keen on the teenager but his demands are understood to be far too ‘excessive’ for the Rossoneri.

According to A Bola, Wolves have already seen an £8.5 million bid rejected for Camacho, who has scored 12 goals in 20 games for Liverpool’s youth teams this season.
