Disgruntled Liverpool starlet Rafael Camacho looks all set to favour a move to another Premier League club rather than returning home.
The 18-year-old, who this week criticised the Reds for playing him out of position, has been linked with a return to Sporting Lisbon, but now it appears a move to Wolves is now “closer”.
Portuguese paper O Jogo via Sport Witness reports today that despite Sporting’s desire to bring the player back to Portugal, Camacho’s preference is to continue in the Premier League, with Wolverhampton Wanderers believed to be interested in the midfielder.
The report claims Wolves have contacted Camacho’s representatives and are keen to land the youngster, who is under contract until 2020, this summer.
Only last week Record reported that Portugal U20 star’s plan was to return to Portugal, but the chance to link up with fellow countryman Nuno Espirito Santo has changed this thinking.
Camacho, who was not allowed to go out on loan in January, has turned down a new contract offer at Anfield with Reds boss Jurgen Klopp planning to use him in his first-team plans in the second half of the season.
However, he has only been given one sub appearance in the Premier League and a single start in the FA Cup and this week he slammed his treatment via an Instagram post.
“I do not know whose idea it is, but I will prove that they are mistaken about my football,” Camacho’s post read.
“I’m not a right defender, I’m an attacker who scores goals. This is my DNA.”
