Aston Villa are reportedly interested in Huddersfield Town defender Terence Kongolo.
According to the Daily Mail, the Midlands giants have asked about the 25-year-old and there is also interest from Watford this summer.
The enforcer suffered relegation from the Premier League last season with Huddersfield, but was one of the standout players and made a positive impression in the top-flight.
Kongolo is a no-nonsense centre-back with great strength and he reads play well too.
The four-time capped Holland international would be an exciting addition for Dean Smith’s side, as they look to prepare themselves for a Premier League return.
Kongolo, who earns £35,000-a-week (Spotrac), has 18 months of Premier League football under his belt and established himself as a key performer in a struggling Huddersfield team.
He’s a centre-back by trade that offers a physical presence in the backline, but he can slot in as a make-shift left-back too if required.
The defender is composed on the ball and looks the type of summer target that could make an immediate impact in the Villa XI next season.
The Midlands club need defensive reinforcements if they are to cope with Premier League attacks and they may have identified a potential gem in Kongolo.
