Leicester City Opinion: Foxes should sign Victor Camarasa in the summer

According to a report from Leicestershire Live, Leicester City are interested in signing Cardiff City midfielder Victor Camarasa in the summer after the Spaniard’s wonderful run of form in the Premier League this season.

Leicester, though, are not the only club weighing up a move for the 24-year-old Real Betis loanee, with Everton, West Ham and Spurs all expressing an interest in the midfielder.

Camarasa has impressed on his loan spell at Cardiff this season, accumulating 5 goals and 3 assists from 26 appearances in the Premier League so far. In a relegation-threatened team that has struggled for creativity all season, the Spaniard has by far been Cardiff’s most creative outlet in the midfield.

It would be fair to say that Camarasa has been one of the standout performers for Neil Warnock’s side and he is one of the main reasons why the Bluebirds still find themselves alive in the relegation battle.

The Spaniard has been used to good effect in central midfield and also further up the pitch in a No.10 role by Warnock. He has shown his ability to keep things ticking in the midfield with his work-rate, while also sparking creativity with his vision and quality on the ball by playing between the lines.

Not only has he shown that he is adept at scoring spectacular goals from outside the box but he has been a key contributor to the build-up play as well, often playing key passes to lay the platform for goals or allowing others to pull the strings.

To add to that, he is a very mobile player who also has the ability to deliver accurate crosses into the penalty area from the flanks. Also, Camarasa is a set-piece specialist who tends to get the perfect amount of dip, elevation and swirl on his deliveries more often than not.

To put things into perspective, Camarasa would potentially be a very good signing for Leicester City. The Foxes have enjoyed a wonderful start to life under new manager Brendan Rodgers but they would need to reshape their squad in the summer to hit greater heights in the Premier League next term.

Youri Tielemans has been instrumental in Leicester’s recent upturn of form in the league since his arrival on loan from Monaco in January. The Belgian has sparked creativity in a rather pedestrian looking Leicester midfield but his future is still up in the air at the end of the season.

While Leicester have begun talks of making his stay permanent for a club-record £40 million but interest from bigger clubs like Man United might see the Foxes lose out on the playmaker (h/t Leicestershire Live).

Leicester have Wilfred Ndidi and Nampalys Mendy as other options in central midfield, but it has been pretty evident from their displays this season that they are not particularly creative in nature.

Leicestershire Live claims that Camarasa has a release clause of €24 million in his contract at Real Betis, which should be well within the Foxes reach even if they sign Tielemans permanently.

The Spaniard has all the attributes to compete with the likes of James Maddison, Mendy and Ndidi for a place in the first-team depending on Rodgers’ team dynamics. The new manager has rotated between 4-2-3-1, 4-1-4-1 and 4-3-3 formations, which should make it easier for Camarasa to fit into the system.
