Camacho would slot into West Ham United’s team due to Pellegrini relationship

West Ham United have contacted Wolfsburg regarding a possible deal for Ignacio Camacho, according to The Guardian.

What’s the word?

The Hammers only have four days left to complete their transfer business, most of which has already been done.

Manuel Pellegrini was quick out of the blocks following his appointment as manager as he has brought in eight new signings.

Virtually every area of the pitch has been strengthened, but there could be an opening in midfield.

Cheikhou Kouyate recently moved to Crystal Palace and there are doubts over Pedro Obiang’s future.

According to The Guardian, contact has been made with Wolfsburg regarding the availability of Camacho.

The report claims that the Hammers are pushing for a season-long loan, but the German outfit would prefer a permanent sale.

Is it worth pursuing?

Transfermarkt values Camacho at £9m, so if the Premier League club can get a cheap deal then perhaps they should consider a permanent arrangement.

The 28-year-old possesses the defensive power that West Ham are looking for, and he is in the best years of his career.

The clincher, though, could be the fact that he has worked with Pellegrini before.

Camacho spent spent six years playing for Malaga, and for two of them he played under the Chilean.

Given that Pellegrini is already aware of the midfielder’s qualities, it will only benefit West Ham.
