Journalist expects Liverpool scouts to watch Aguibou Camara tonight

Liverpool will send scouts to watch potential transfer target Aguibou Camara tonight, according to one journalist. The 20-year-old currently plays for Olympiacos.

This comes from Greek journalist Giannis Chorianopoulos. The Sportime editor claims that Liverpool will have scouts in attendance tonight to watch Aguibou Camara.

Camara should feature for Olympiacos tonight against Royal Antwerp. The Greek side know that a win could see them finish top of their Europa League group – if Eintracht Frankfurt lose to Fenerbahce.

Liverpool won’t be the only ones in attendance, however. Real Madrid, Newcastle United, AC Milan, Inter and Fiorentina are named as also sending people to watch Camara.

He’s a hot commodity, then – but who exactly is Camara?

Liverpool to watch Aguibou Camara

Camara is a 20-year-old attacking midfielder from Guinea who’s making a name for himself in Greece. Four goals and two assists in the league this season will do that.

He typically plays in that attacking midfield role but some Europa League fixtures have seen him play from the right-wing. It suggests a versatility that watching clubs would like, certainly.


But in all truth, we don’t know all that much about Camara. He’s a young player catching the eye in what is his first real senior season, though – that’s certainly impressive. The midfielder was at Lille before Olympiacos but didn’t get much of a look-in.

This could be a case of a talent quickly proving himself and getting a big move before his value sky-rockets, then. However, the laundry list of watching clubs suggests his value won’t stay low for long.

Perhaps one to watch for a January transfer but we’d be surprised if Liverpool jumped after just six months of football. This number of clubs watching Camara will push his price to a certain level on its own, let alone if he impresses scouts.

There will be competition after any kind of bid – and has he really shown enough to warrant a bidding war? We’ll wait and see but it doesn’t feel likely.
