However, some of European football’s biggest clubs have also sent scouts to watch Camara in action, with the likes of Liverpool, Manchester United and Roma all said to have shown an interest in the midfielder over the last three seasons.

Journalist Pete O’Rourke took to Twitter to suggest United were interested in the midfielder but also stated they face competition from one other Premier League club.
