Aguibou Camara, Olympiacos midfielder wanted by Liverpool

Liverpool are yet to truly replace Georginio Wijnaldum, as although Curtis Jones and Harvey Elliott have stepped up in midfield, the Reds are still keen to bolster their options in midfield.

It is unlikely that Aguibou Camara will be the player to replace the Dutchman, but Liverpool are reportedly keen on the 20-year-old Olympiacos midfielder and have already scouted him this season.

Camara does not have a lot of senior football experience but the signs are good and there definitely seems to be some talent there.

So, what kind of player do Liverpool have their eye on?

How good is Aguibou Camara?

Camara is a Guinea international and featured for Lille II before making one appearance for the French side before moving to Greece.

In his entire senior career Camara has only made 11 starts so there isn't a lot to go on currently.

However, his talent as an all-rounder midfielder is already starting to emerge.

A powerful, athletic presence, he can get around the pitch with ease but he is also very strong in the tackle and can pick a pass, too. His small stature but athleticism has seen him likened to N'Golo Kante.

His best ability, however, is probably his ball-carrying as he can maraud through the middle into space with ease.

In the game that Liverpool scouted him, a 3-0 win over Fenerbahce, Camara recorded the most completed dribbles and the most completed interceptions.

His goal contributions are also impressive, as in eight starts for Olympiacos so far he has two goals and two assists to his name.
