According to a recent report by Sky Sports, Liverpool are looking to loan out Rafael Camacho during this January transfer window. The Reds youngster has made just one appearance in Jurgen Klopp’s first-team this season so a loan switch away from Anfield for the remainder of this campaign could help him develop as a player as he looks to come back to Merseyside as a much-improved version of himself in a few months time.

Camacho has incredible potential and could be one of the stars of the future, but for now, he is still not ready to feature in the Liverpool first-team regularly. The Merseyside giants are currently the favourites to win the Premier League title so it is expected that Klopp would be inclined to rely on his first-team stars and not give some of his young players a chance on the pitch. 

Liverpool cannot afford to risk hampering their title charge in order to help their youth players continue with their development. Hence, there is a growing need for the club to let some of their talents go out on loan this month. Here are three ideal loan destinations for the 18-year-old Portuguese wonderkid to consider during the January transfer period.

Huddersfield Town

Camacho could be a shrewd acquisition for Huddersfield Town who have nothing to lose as they sit rock bottom of the Premier League table, destined to be relegated at the end of this campaign. They have recently sacked David Wagner and lost 3-0 at home to Manchester City last weekend. 

The Terriers are in a position to take some risks to give themselves a chance to avoid relegation this season. Hence, a loan move for Camacho could help them turn things around at the John Smith’s Stadium.

Newcastle United

Newcastle United boss Rafael Benitez still has good relations with his former club Liverpool so he could consider making a loan move for Camacho. The Magpies are currently cash strapped in the winter transfer market with the club’s owner Mike Ashley refusing to loosen his purse strings so far. Hence, the Liverpool starlet could be an astute signing for them as they look to make the most out of a dire financial situation at St. James Park.


Southampton have seen a change in fortunes under their new manager Ralph Hasenhüttl and have managed to get themselves out of the relegation zone recently. The Saints could benefit from acquiring some promising players on loan so that they can continue their good form in the English top-flight and Camacho fits the bill perfectly.
