Mohamed Camara has box-to-box qualities

Box-to-Box Potential

While Camara comes across as a more defensively-minded midfielder, the 22-year-old has shown glimpses that he can play that number eight role that Everton have struggled to nail down since the days of Marouane Fellaini, unless you count Ross Barkley as an eight.

Camara is quite a raw talent when it comes to his attacking output, but being coached by one of the best box-to-box midfielders the Premier League has ever seen is always a good way to improve.

His 1.75 dribbles attempted is nothing spectacular, but it shows that Camara will take his chances when provided, and at such a young age he will only continue to develop as his confidence grows.

Camara would likely be a back-up for Everton, possibly learning under fellow Mali international Abdoulaye Doucoure, who could provide Camara with a mentor so the midfielder can bed in quickly. Everton seem to be taking a smarter approach to this transfer window, making sure that there is value when they spend, and if the Toffees can sign Camara for less than £20 million they will be getting a bargain on a player who is valued at £25 million on TransferMarkt.
