If there’s one man West From seem keen on getting, it’s Malaga’s Ignacio Camacho.
Looking for a defensive midfielder, Tony Pulis has been linked with moves for the Spaniard for over a year now, a target that seems somewhat more realistic than Sporting CP’s William Carvalho.
While discussions between the two clubs have taken place over the course of the past year or so, both in the summer and in January, no transfer materialised, but this summer could be different.
Speaking to AS in Spain, Camacho explained that he wasn’t against a move to another club, whether that be West Brom or somewhere else, with Valencia making an offer for him in January, as long as the deal was appealing to both him and Malaga.
The Spanish newspaper report that Camacho currently has an €18m release clause in his contract, and Abdullah Al-Thani, the club’s owner, expects interesting parties, including the Baggies, to match that if they want to acquire their star’s services.
As things stand, West Brom have only offered €15m (£12.5m), meaning they would only need to add an extra €3m to get their man.
With Camacho open to a move, and Tony Pulis still looking for that defensive midfielder capable of sitting in front of the defence at the Hawthorns, it wouldn’t be surprising if he went back in for the one-time Spain international.
At 26, he also still has the best years of his contract ahead of him, and with contract extension talks at Malaga nowhere near close to an agreement, West Brom certainly have a chance.
