The Guardian claim that the deal is worth around £24million, and the Spaniard will arrive to bring more flair and creativity to the London Stadium next season and beyond.
The Daily Mail recently noted that Wolves and West Ham were showing the strongest interest in bringing Camarasa back to the Premier League, after his season-long loan spell with Cardiff City came to an end.
Now, West Ham have their Spanish playmaker on board, only it's Fornals and not Camarasa. They may well bring in another midfielder, but it's more likely to be a holding midfielder than another playmaker, potentially making Wolves the most likely destination for Camarasa.
The 25-year-old starred for Cardiff last season, hitting five goals and four assists. He's creative, dangerous from long range, a threat from set pieces and available, given that Real Betis seemingly have no plans for him.
Wolves fans may wish that Fornals had joined them, and that Camarasa would be a consolation prize, but their roles would be very different, and Camarasa to Wolves actually makes tons of sense; more so than if they'd gone for Fornals.
Joao Moutinho is the most advanced of Wolves' midfield trio, and at nearly 33, it would be a lot to expect him to play both Premier League and Europa League games regularly. A creative midfielder to challenge him would be ideal, and Camarasa fits the bill with a similar skillset.
Camarasa shouldn't break the bank, and wouldn't be commanding a starring role like Fornals will be at West Ham. Camarasa may even be able to grow into Moutinho's role long-term, and with West Ham seemingly out of the picture, Wolves would be wise to press ahead with a move for Camarasa now – before other Premier League clubs do, bringing more depth and quality to Nuno Espirito Santo's side.
