The club have recently averted their scouting efforts away from France and more in the direction of Spain, with Ayoze Perez demonstrating the potential benefits of such ventures. And now it looks as though Camarasa is being lined up as the next Spanish import.
With Levante currently experiencing financial troubles, the youngster is likely to be sold at the end of the season in order to balance the books. It is believed he would cost in the region of £5 million.
Camarasa, who was released by Valencia as a youngster, made his first official La Liga start in January of last year against his former club. Since then, he hasn’t looked back, and has been attracting the attention of a number of high profile clubs both in Spain and abroad.
Camarasa was used mostly in the Copa del Rey at the club last season, but José Luis Mendilibar had no hesitation giving the youngster a starting spot at the beginning of the current campaign.
With Cheik Tiote supposedly set to depart this Summer, and with Gabby Obertan and Sammy Ameobi’s future hanging in the balance, Newcastle are in need of midfield reinforcements, and Camarasa could be the ideal candidate.
Have any of our readers seen him in action? Would he fit the Newcastle playing philosophy?
