On Friday we brought you a report from Bolivia that West Ham United were targeting midfielder Daniel Camacho.

Eju! Claimed that the Hammers were keen on the young midfielder having had him recommended to them by assistant manager Rubén Cousillas. 

His son, Agustín Cousillas, just so happens to be the goalkeeper at Aurora, where Camacho is currently on loan and has seemingly tipped his dad off about the midfielder.

Diez backed up Eju! ’s claims, saying that Camacho’s club The Strongest, were deciding whether to let Camacho join West Ham, adding that the midfielder was keen on the move.

Now, Camacho has been asked about the interest and admitted he is ‘excited’ about the rumours surrounding him.

“I already had a very good offer from Corinthians a few years ago,” he told Opinión.

“It is a very large team from Brazil, but, honestly, this is bigger. I’m excited, although I can’t comment much either. 

“No one told me about Tigré, for now. I have no idea what the negotiation will be or what is the proposal (from West Ham).”

The newspaper also managed to speak to Camacho’s agent, Ulises Guallanez, who confirmed the interest from the Hammers explaining that West Ham’s scouts had provided ‘good references’ about the youngster.

He, though, is taking a calm approach to the affair as he knows there are plenty of bureaucratic hoops for his client to jump through before he can secure a move to the London Stadium.

“They need the boy to be community (get a European passport). The first thing the clubs find out is the amount of money, the player’s price tag. 

“Then, they analyse the theme of the papers. You have to see what they ask for in Sub 23. I don’t know their intentions.

“He is happy, but he doesn’t have time to think about it that much. He only focuses on not getting relegated.”
