Magpies Keen On Signing Spanish Holding Midfielder


SuperDeporte in Spain are reporting that Newcastle are trying to sign Levante midfielder Victor Camarasa in the summer, and the transfer fee is said to be £5M.

Victor camarasa grande

Victor Camarasa – 20 year-old Spanish U21 midfielder

The Spanish 20 year-old midfielder joined Levante in 2012,  after joining  the Valencia Youth Academy when he was just seven years old, and this season he has played 20 times for the Levante first team with two goals and one assist.

Victor is a defensive midfielder, and with Cheick Tiote likely to be sold this summer, Newcastle will be linked with a number of holding midfielders this summer.

Owner Mike Ashley likes to bring in younger players whose value will increase on Tyneside, and they can then be sold to bigger clubs at a profit – which will make the finances look great at Newcatsle, but it does nothing for building a decent team on Tyneside.

🙁

The 6′ tall midfielder has been capped at the Spanish U21 level, and he is considered one of Spain’s best young players and for Newcastle to pay out £5M for a 20 year-old is a lot.

Levante are 4th bottom of La Liga at the moment, and just one point above the drop zone, and they would be almost certain to sell Camarasa in the summer if they were relegated.

But they are also struggling financially and will want to cash in on their best young player this summer.

But Newcastle will have competition for the youngster, and Tottenham Hotspur are also in for the 20 year-old, and of course beat us to Dele Alli, and that was after Newcastle had been hot favorites to sign the 18 year-old central midfielder.

Newcastle have been delighted with the progress of Spanish U21 International Ayoze Perez in his first season on Tyneside, and the 21 year-old was brought in for peanuts (£1.6M) in the summer, and Graham Carr has subsequently expanded Newcastle’s coaching activities in Spain.

This lad looks like a good player so we hope we can sign him, but if Spurs are keen then it will be difficult for Newcastle to do that.

Spurs are a much more ambitious club than Newcastle these days, and they are keen to win trophies, and are even pushing for a top four place.

Nothing like that is in Mike Ashley’s sights for Newcastle.

    “Haris Vuckic has been a dangerous figure in attack for Rangers, often committing Queens defenders with his quick footwork, but the home side needs to find a way to involve him more regularly.”

    Not QPR but the Doonhamers.. It’ll be an ill wind blowing at Ibrox if our loan players actually improve.

    Never heard of him, next, or better still why don’t we wait until the window opens there that’s a good idea.

    Have to say though, Ed, my Spanish is decidedly rusty because as far as I can gather it’s a story on Spuds interest, no discernible mention of our good selves. Unless I’m reading the wrong article?

    Welsh I never said you were being serious. I would never rashly accuse you of that 🙂 but as I say it comes across as more wum than humorous.

    Don’t worry Ed about transfer targets, in the newcastle bosses we trust.

    I hope the Madrileños give Schalke a good hand at the end of this cracking game.
