Potential consequences of West Ham signing Victor Camarasa

Potential consequences of West Ham signing Victor Camarasa

West Ham United fans will agree that improvements are required if their side are to make anything of the current campaign, as Wolves and Watford dented the Hammers’ European hopes last night.

Manuel Pellegrini will already have one eye on making a number of transfer window moves to freshen things up in the summer, with players possibly departing after an underwhelming campaign.

Interestingly, one player who is reportedly (as per Marca, via Wales Online) attracting interest from West Ham United is Real Betis’ Victor Camarasa. The midfielder is currently on loan at Premier League side Cardiff City but he looks set to return to his parent club in the summer with the Bluebirds possibly suffering relegation.

With that being said, here are the potential consequences of the Spaniard joining…

DAVID GOLD AND DAVID SULLIVAN SECURE NOBLE HEIR

Many West Ham fans will agree that Mark Noble has looked past his best at times in the current campaign as he’s been slow on the ball and has struggled to influence the game.

Of course, the middle of midfield has been a weak point for the Hammers this season as Declan Rice has had to carry the main load. So with Noble struggling to ensure consistency on the field and fans calling out for changes in the summer transfer window, perhaps Camarasa will replace the midfielder.

But, with a number of teams all fighting for his signature, David Gold and David Sullivan may have to pay a big fee.

NO MOVE FOR JONJO SHELVEY

The Sun reported at the start of this month that West Ham United are set to land Jonjo Shelvey, but nothing has developed up until this point so it remains to be seen as to whether he’ll make the move to London.

And, sealing a summer deal for Camarasa may just mean that the Hammers decide against moving for Shelvey as it’s unlikely that they’ll want to splash out on two central midfielders in the summer. Also, having witnessed the Cardiff City man’s performances in recent times, perhaps he’s above the Englishman on their target list.

West Ham United fans, do you think Camarasa is better than Jonjo Shelvey? Join the discussion by commenting down below!
