​Norwich City are keen to take over Crystal Palace's loan deal for Real Betis midfielder Víctor Camarasa, who has found game time incredibly hard to come by at Selhurst Park.

Palace agreed to sign Camarasa permanently for €13.5m if he makes 15 appearances this season, but the 25-year-old has managed just two outings so far - including just five minutes of Premier League action.

Betis are ​considering terminating the loan to try and find a new home for Camarasa, and now The Sun claim that ​Norwich would be interested in bringing the Spaniard to Carrow Road for the remainder of the campaign.

The Canaries are understood to believe that they could offer him the game time which he is missing out on with ​Palace, and they would be prepared to pay the remainder of the loan fee to complete the deal.

However, whether Betis would be open to such a deal is uncertain. It is believed that they only want to terminate Camarasa's loan so that they can find a new permanent buyer from him, but they would likely be open to another temporary move if it led to a full transfer next summer.

That €13.5m figure could be problematic for Norwich. Their biggest spend of the summer was the £750,000 deal to sign right-back Sam Byram, suggesting that they may not have significant funds at their disposal.

Daniel Farke's side are looking for any form of inspiration, having fallen to bottom of the ​Premier League table. They need some top-flight experience in their ranks, so a move for Camarasa certainly makes sense.

The 25-year-old spent last season in the Premier League with ​Cardiff City, but his five goals and four assists were not enough to keep the Bluebirds away from relegation.


Betis don't exactly have many options right now. They don't want to keep Camarasa on their books, but it seems almost certain that Palace will not sign him permanently. 

As a result, they could look to ship him out to Norwich, in the hope that he attracts a buyer at the end of the season.
