Liverpool fans should watch Aguibou Camara very carefully at the AFCON

Aguibou Camara appears set to be one to watch for Liverpool fans at the Africa Cup of Nations. Reports continue to link the Reds.

CalcioMercato claims Liverpool have eyes on Aguibou Camara. Along with AC Milan, they’re hoping to see the right things from the Guinean at the Africa Cup of Nations.

Now, this is far from the first link. Foot Mercato claimed similar to end last month, while there have been claims from Greece, too, where Camara plays for Olympiacos

And so it certainly appears that Liverpool have a real interest in Camara. One to watch for fans at the AFCON, then.

Interest in Camara certainly makes a lot of sense. He’s showing himself to be a very talented player with Olympiacos as a versatile attacking midfielder.

He can play wide on the right or centrally – something we’ve written before that lends itself to Liverpool. Camara is also a slightly less experienced player than he seems. Despite now being 20, this is his first proper season of senior football, having never had a look-in with Lille.

DROGBA DID WORSE THAN LUKAKU

The Guinean moved to Greece in the summer hoping to show what he can do and Camara has certainly done that. Now he faces another big test – AFCON.

Camara will start in midfield for his country alongside Naby Keita, giving Liverpool fans a dual reason to pay attention to Guinea. If the former manages to impress, he may well take a step closer to playing with Keita at club level, too.

Liverpool are building an exciting young side, after all. The likes of Curtis Jones, Harvey Elliott and Ibrahima Konate are all first-team stars of the future and around the same age as Camara.

Perhaps a fine display at AFCON can convince Liverpool to add him to the group.
