According to a recent report by Wales Online, Tottenham Hotspur are in a race against West Ham United and Leicester City in pursuit of Real Betis midfielder Victor Camarasa, who is currently playing on loan at Cardiff City. In an interview with Radio Marca Sevilla (via Wales Online), the Spanish midfielder provided an update on his future and said, “I have a contract with Betis, and I’ve been very happy there, I’ve felt very comfortable.

“We’ll see about my future; it’s up to both parties, I still can’t say anything because I don’t know what Betis wants. I’ll do the pre-season, and you’ll see.”

Camarasa’s Successful Loan Spell In Wales

Camarasa has refused to rule out a summer move away from Betis which will encourage Spurs to step up their interest in him during the upcoming transfer period. The Spaniard has enjoyed a stellar loan spell at the Cardiff City Stadium after putting in a series of match-winning displays for them during this campaign.

The 24-year-old has featured in 31 matches for the Bluebirds this term, scoring five goals while grabbing four assists in all competitions. He spent most of his youth career playing for clubs such as Valencia, Levante and Alaves before his move to Real Betis in the summer of 2017.

What Will He Add To Pochettino’s Team?

Camarasa can pass the ball accurately from midfield and can also make some well-timed runs in the opposition half. He is also physically dominant and knows how to retain possession at the centre of the park. However, the jury is still out on whether he can handle the expectations of playing for a top club like Tottenham. The Spaniard will not only improve Mauricio Pochettino’s squad depth but will also increase competition for places within the Spurs midfield.

Should Spurs Make A Move For Him?

With Christian Eriksen’s contract running out next year, Dele Alli struggling with injuries and Heung-min Son being pushed up to play as a secondary striker, there could be a place available in the attacking midfield position that might have Camarasa’s name on it. But it is possible only if he can prove his worth in the final few matches of this campaign.

All in all, the Spanish talent could be a low-risk gamble worth pursuing so Pochettino should consider making a move for him in this off-season.
