Wolves would send out the wrong message to young stars by signing Camarasa

Per a report from The Daily Mail, Wolves are interested in signing Victor Camarasa, who spent the season on loan at relegated Cardiff.

What’s the word?

Camarasa was one of few standout players for Cardiff this season as Neil Warnock’s side lacked the potency to keep them in the division.

The Spaniard scored five goals, the joint most of any Bluebirds player throughout the 2018/19 campaign.

The midfield man spent the season on loan from Real Betis in Spain but he could now be on the move again if The Daily Mail are to be believed.

They claim that Wolves are keen on signing the player but face competition from West Ham. The report suggests that Betis are considering loaning or selling him but it isn’t yet known what sort of deal they’d prefer.

At present, Transfermarkt rate the player at £5.4m.

Worrying message for Wolves youngsters?  

Birmingham Live claimed last week that Nuno Santo was wanting reinforcements in his midfield, but for a player of Camarasa’s ability they’d be better off promoting from within.

It’s no secret that the Midlands club need more depth in their squad but considering Wolves’ top half finish and the fact they’ll be in the Europa League next season, they arguably need to invest in better quality. The alternative would be to not bring in anyone at all.

By signing the midfielder, it would limit the game time of some of Wolves’ most promising players. Morgan Gibbs-White struggled for regular starts this term, appearing just five times from the off in the Premier League.

Meanwhile, the club also have young midfielders in Pote and Connor Ronan coming through the ranks.

Pote was one of the stars as Wolves’ U23 side won the Premier League 2 Division 2 title. Ronan, meanwhile enjoyed a productive loan spell with DAC in Slovakia.

The aforementioned players could really benefit from the added matches Wolves will have to play next term but their involvement could take a hit should a deal be struck for Camarasa.

Given Ronan only signed a new contract this week, it might feel like somewhat of a betrayal to bring someone else in.

Although Camarasa would be a shrewd investment, his place in the squad is better off going to one of their rising stars. If he did join, it would send out a concerning message to those coming through that perhaps they aren’t up to the task.
