Victor Camarasa shows what Tottenham and West Ham missed in January 2018

Cardiff City were left in awe of their winning goal on Saturday as Victor Camarasa sent a rocket beyond Kasper Schmeichel, but it could have been very different for the Real Betis loanee had he moved last January.

ABC de Sevilla claimed that both Tottenham and West Ham were monitoring the Spaniard in the last winter transfer window and considered a move for the midfielder, though it never became reality and he joined newly promoted Cardiff on loan in the summer.

The 24-year-old has impressed in Wales but has proven his point with this latest strike as he aims to help keep Neil Warnock’s side up in their fight for Premier League survival.

As Tottenham floundered against Wolves at the same time, with a lack of depth in midfield highlighted more than ever before, Camarasa’s offer for the north London club was clear to envisage.

West Ham too have been lacking in the middle of the park when they have struggled this season, which could reflect the way that they may have benefited from the arrival of Camarasa.

What will be truly intriguing will be to see if either club returns for Camarasa in the summer when his loan at Cardiff comes to an end and he may well look to upgrade.
