Turkish outlet Takvim claim Aston Villa have persuaded Kasimpasa to sell winger Trezeguet after the Midlands club tabled an offer worth £9.9million for the Egyptian attacker.
The 24-year-old star has been linked with a move to Villa Park for much of the summer, as the newly-promoted side continue to spend on new players. So far, they have made six new signings.
Anwar El Ghazi, Kortney Hause and Tyrone Mings have all signed permanent deals, while Jota, Wesley Moraes and Matt Targett have also joined the Midlands side. More are expected to arrive.
One of those could be Trezeguet, who has caught the attention of Villa after shining during his two years at Kasimpasa. He has scored 25 times in 71 games from the flank, nine of which came last term – as well as 10 assists.
It is now believed that Villa have convinced Kasimpasa to accept an offer with a £9.9million bid, though Dean Smith’s side may find they have competition after the Mirror claimed Everton are also interested.
TBR’s view – Trezeguet at less than £10m a bargain for Villa
Scored at international level, one of the best wingers in Turkish football and constantly linked with a move to some of the biggest leagues in Europe, Trezeguet is an excellent talent.
So for Villa to firstly beat competition to the signing of Trezeguet, is a coup. But to get him for less than £10million is an even bigger coup, with the player more than likely to double that figure.
