In June, Tottenham were linked with a move for Victor Camarasa as a potential replacement for Mousa Dembele who left the club in January. The Real Betis midfielder impressed on loan at Cardiff City last season and found himself on Spurs’ radar. It’s hard to see the Lilywhites making a move now, however, as they’ve signed Tanguy Ndombele and may not need another defensive-midfielder.

Camarasa wouldn’t have broken the bank. The 25-year-old has a £12.8m asking price and earns only £16.7k-per-week at Real Betis, but he would have had stiff competition for a place at Tottenham. Mauricio Pochettino has Eric Dier, Harry Winks, Victor Wanyama, Moussa Sissoko, Dele Alli and Ndombele to choose from, so Camarasa would have a difficult task to get minutes.

It’s also unknown if the former Spanish u21 international is good enough for Spurs. He’s been linked with a move to Leicester City and West Ham United while being completely overlooked by the Premier League’s big six. With the Lilywhites being linked with Giovani Lo Celso and Dani Ceballos, the squad risks becoming bloated without including Camarasa, so it’s hard to see him joining the club this summer.
