For the past month, most of the rumours we’ve been covering regarding the future of Rafael Camacho have come from Portugal.

These stories say that Benfica and Sporting both want to take the player from Liverpool, and don’t give many details about the other clubs who might be interested in him.

Now it turns out that claims from the Italian media show a new angle, claiming Wolverhampton Wanderers are actually one of the strongest competitors in this race.

Website Calcio Mercato claims that Wolves and Milan are the two clubs with the ‘best credentials’ to land the youngster, whose contract with Liverpool expires in a year.

The problem for Milan is that Camacho’s demands are considered to be too much, which made they step back on the chase a little.

So even though Calcio Mercato don’t spit it out, they make it sound like Wolves are the best placed club in this battle. At least from Italy’s point of view.

Earlier today, we’ve covered claims from Portugal which said that Camacho’s father will meet both Benfica and Sporting this week. But if Milan can’t afford him, we find it very likely that he’ll get a different response from the Lisbon clubs.
