A number of Aston Villa fans have taken to Twitter to comment on reports from The Athletic this week suggesting that Ezri Konsa is on the radar of both Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur.
Konsa has been a revelation in recent months for Dean Smith’s side. He has made 20 appearances for the Villans in the Premier League this season.
Villa boast the second-best defensive record in the division this term. So it will probably come as no surprise to supporters that one of their key men is attracting admiring glances from elsewhere.
According to The Athletic, both the Reds and Spurs have the 23-year-old on their radar heading into the summer.
Konsa joined Villa for £12 million ahead of their return to the Premier League. And it appears that many supporters believe that the club should only be prepared to sell the defender if they are offered the chance to make an incredible profit.
Some have even claimed that Konsa should command a fee of around £100 million. The smallest figure mentioned amongst many meanwhile, was still £50 million.
Several seem confident about their chances of holding onto Konsa for a while longer. Villa look to be in a strong position on and off the pitch right now. And unless the centre-back makes it clear that he wants to go, many fans cannot see the Villans having any interest in letting him leave.
Here is how some of the Villa supporters have reacted to the links with Liverpool and Spurs…
The way #AVFC will be run, will mean some players will be sold for mega money. That said, and specific to Konsa, he has such a great potential, that I can’t see us letting go until he is an England regular & a couple more seasons under his belt. We are then talking 100m plus

He’s our best centre half by far. Not a chance we’ll sell him.

He’ll be in the same situation as Jack or anyone else of interest – he’ll leave if he wants to. We no longer *need* to sell, so it’s all down to the player. Makes us as a club step up to match player ambition. Everyone wins. Great times.
