Report: Aston Villa now open to selling two players, including ‘unplayable’ talent wanted by Nottingham Forest

Aston Villa are now reportedly open to selling Marvelous Nakamba and Keinan Davis, with the latter wanted by Nottingham Forest

The Athletic reports that Villa are now welcoming offers for Nakamba, Davis, Bertrand Traore and Anwar El Ghazi

Reports suggest that Forest are keen on signing the ‘unplayable’ Davis this summer after the player spent the second half of last season on loan at the City Ground.

The 24-year-old was a big success for Steve Cooper’s men last season and had a huge impact on the side after joining in January. 

The Villa striker bagged five goals in 15 games for Forest and played a key role in the club’s promotion back to the Premier League. 

Villa open to selling Davis 

The Reds have been the busiest team in the transfer window so far as the club have really backed Cooper by bringing in 13 players. 

And they could be tempted to make a move for Davis as it’s a player that the Welsh boss knows well from last season. 

Cooper faces the difficult task of introducing such a high number of players into his team but that would arguably not be a risk with Davis. The player has already played under the Forest manager and knows exactly what is expected of him. 

Davis is unlikely to feature under Villa boss Steven Gerrard this season as he faces stiff competition for a place in his side in Ollie Watkins and Danny Ings.

A move back to the City Ground for the English forward would make perfect sense for the player after he enjoyed a successful spell there. 

At the age of 24, Davis now needs to play regular first-team football and he stands a much better chance of getting that at Forest than Villa. 

Cooper has added striker Taiwo Awoniyi from Union Berlin this summer but Davis could compete with the Nigerian international for a starting role.
