Reported Liverpool target Ezri Konsa has been enjoying a superb season for Aston Villa this term.
The 23-year-old joined Villa from Brentford in 2019 for a reported £12million and has made 52 competitive appearances in all competitions for Dean Smith’s side.
This season, Konsa has featured 20 times in the Premier League, helping the Villans enjoy a great campaign and remaining in the top half of the table.
As a result, it’s not much of a surprise to see him linked with other clubs, The Athletic claiming that Liverpool and Spurs are both keeping tabs on the defender.
Villa’s defensive record of 24 goals conceded is only bettered by Man City this season (15), and Konsa has been a key element of that impressive back line.
Indeed, the 6ft ace has blocked more shots (25) than any other player in the Premier League this season, a statistic the Villa Twitter feed proudly shared.
