Liverpool like the look of Aguibou Camara, according to reports. The Reds watched the Olympiacos midfielder in a 3-0 win.
This comes from Greek outlet Sportime. They claim that Liverpool had scouts in attendance to watch Fenerbahce vs Olympiacos at the end of last month.
That game finished 3-0 to the Greek side and the Reds’ scouts apparently came away with one name on their shortlist – Aguibou Camara. The 20-year-old midfielder certainly put in a good performance.
Camara completed three dribbles in the fixture out of three attempts, which was a game-high. He also won two tackles, made three interceptions (another game-high), and was heavily involved with 52 touches.
It’s all very impressive from a 20-year-old who only joined the club in July. In fact, Camara didn’t have any real senior experience before moving to Olympiacos.
But he’s impressed in both Europa League games so far. He played 76 minutes against Royal Antwerp in Olympiacos’s opener and again registered tackles, dribbles, and plenty of involvement.
No wonder, then, that Liverpool like Camara.

There’s still very little to go on, given the short senior career, but Camara does appear to have the makings of an impressive all-around midfielder. Sportime stress that Liverpool aren’t looking to bid anytime soon but are expected to keep watching him.
This is one to watch for the rest of the season, then. And as it happens, Liverpool do have a bit of an ‘in’ here.
Camara now has three caps for the Guinean national team, whose captain is Naby Keita. The Reds’ no.8 can offer some decent insight into an otherwise relative unknown.
A January move seems very, very unlikely but next summer? Perhaps Camara could be the latest young prospect to join the Reds’ ranks. At the very least, we imagine this is a name we’ll be hearing again.
