Liverpool winger Rafael Camacho is a man in demand this summer. There are plenty of teams chasing the youngster, including Wolverhampton Wanderers (The Express & Star).
But a new club have entered the race for Camacho. According to German media outlet Kicker, Camacho is a summer target for Bundesliga side Schalke.
So far this summer, Schalke have already brought in Jonjoe Kenny on loan from Everton. And the German side could return to Merseyside for a Liverpool player now.
Camacho could team up with former rival Kenny at Schalke. But Kenny might be a bit concerned by this rumour. Camacho has played two senior games for the Reds and he filled in at right-back for both matches.
The Portugal youth international made his debut against Wolves in the FA Cup. Shortly after, he came on against Crystal Palace. Kenny will be wondering if his game time will be limited if Schalke sign potential right-back Camacho.
Rafael Camacho: “This is my DNA.”
But Kenny will be relieved by Camacho’s old comments about his favoured position. The 19-year-old took to Instagram in April after scoring a hat-trick for the U23 team to express his dissatisfaction with being made to play at right-back.
He captioned his post: “I do not know whose idea it is, but I will prove that they are mistaken about my football. I’m not a right defender, I’m an attacker who scores goals. This is my DNA.
Happy to score 3 goals and help the team in today’s win vs Leicester.”
Camacho wants to leave Liverpool this summer and this might be one of the factors behind his decision. So it is unlikely that he will be taking Kenny’s spot as the Schalke right-back.
