The future at Liverpool certainly appears to be looking bright, wouldn’t you say? Jurgen Klopp has a number of talented players at his disposal and has plenty of exciting youngsters coming through the youth system that could make an impression in the first-team.
However, it would appear that one of those bright prospects could be about to end his time at Anfield following his latest decision.
What’s the News?
Football Insider have claimed that Rafael Camacho has turned down a new deal to remain at Liverpool and could look to leave the Anfield outfit in the summer.
It is understood that the Reds had offered the teenager a new five-year contract, however, talks have been stalling and the club could now look to cash in on the Portuguese talent, rather than let him go for nothing in 2020.
The claims that Camacho has rejected an offer to extend his deal at Anfield will have come as a blow to Liverpool and Klopp.
The teenager has been extremely impressive for the Under-23’s this season and his performances for the developmental side at Melwood this season will have only gone further to prove how good he is and the potential he has to offer.
Camacho has scored nine goals and provided eight assists in his 18 appearances across all competitions for the youth side.
The 18-year-0ld has already had a taste of first-team action at Liverpool, however, it should not necessarily come as a surprise to hear that he is ready to leave the club.
First-team opportunities are going to be extremely limited for Camacho at Anfield and with the possibility of getting those chances elsewhere on a more regular basis, that will be something that is likely to appeal more to him at this stage of his career.
With the reported interest in him, the Portugal Under-20 international could fetch a rather attractive transfer fee in the summer, however, whether Liverpool are willing to allow him to go is something that will have to remain to be seen.
Liverpool fans, would you be disappointed to see Camacho be sold? Should Klopp have played him more often in the first-team? Join in with the discussion below by sharing your thoughts with us.Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
