As the Lisbon clubs, along with Wolves and others, continue to pursue Liverpool youngster Rafael Camacho, it looks like the first moves are finally being made.
Portuguese newspaper A Bola brings a story today saying Benfica are set to to meet the player’s representatives next Tuesday.
The Eagles are interested in knowing the conditions of a possible deal, as they are still not aware of how much they would have to spend to take him from Liverpool one year before the end of his contract with the Reds.
Sporting are also said to be in touch with Camacho’s representatives, and are already aware of the moves that their city rivals are making.
Sporting made an attempt to sign the player on a loan deal in January, but the move was blocked by Liverpool. Now the Lions want to be aware of all the approaches the player gets, not only from Benfica, but from other clubs as well.
A Bola also writes that Borussia Dortmund and Wolverhampton Wanderers both made bids of €10m for the player, but they were turned down by Liverpool, who want to give Camacho a new contract.
