Liverpool must give Rafa Camacho longawaited first-team debut, or risk losing him

Drawing Wolves may not have been the simplest of FA Cup ties for Liverpool, but it is still an ideal opportunity for Liverpool to blood some of their most promising youngsters, such as Rafa Camacho.

Goal report that Sporting CP have made an offer to take the 18-year-old on loan for the second half of the season and it is no surprise either, given the fact that he has recorded seven goals and eight assists in 15 games this season for the under 23s.

Versatile and playing on the right, in the middle and on the left, anywhere from wing-back forwards, Camacho was involved in the club’s pre-season tour this summer and featured in several friendlies against the likes of Manchester United and Napoli.

As such, he can hope for a debut on Monday night when Liverpool face Wolves in the FA Cup. Jurgen Klopp is expected to ring the changes to rest his usual starters, and that could provide an opportunity for Camacho to step up.


Taking it could determine the next six months of his career, with a move to his native Portugal to get more game time possible, though he may be offered a first team role at Liverpool if he impresses.

Either way, Liverpool fans should not expect any movement from the midfielder until Klopp has had the chance to see him in action, and that chance may come on Monday evening.
