The skilful central-midfielder spent last season on loan at Cardiff City in England’s top flight and made a real positive impression, even if he couldn’t help Neil Warnock’s side avoid the drop.
Camarasa scored five, often stunning goals and caught the eye with his vision and passing range at the heart of an otherwise workmanlike and frequently uninspiring engine room.
And with Marca claiming that the 25-year-old is available for just shy of £13 million this summer, it was expected that he would be on the move before now. We have reached July, however, and Camarasa’s future is still up in the air.
Betis have had a change of coach, Rubi replacing Quique Setien at the helm, and this could have saved Camarasa’s career at the Estadio Benito Villamarin. It is not yet clear that Rubi’s plans are, however, and the report claims that the former Levante man is hoping for interest from Tottenham, West Ham or Leicester if he is left out in the cold again.
With West Ham spending big on Pablo Fornals and Tottenham seemingly focusing elsewhere for now, Leicester is perhaps the most likely club to come to Camarasa’s rescue.
He’d be a far cheaper option than Youri Tielemans and his ability to spot a pass and comfortably fit into a possession-based style should suit Brendan Rodgers down to the ground.
