Aston Villa: Everton make Ollie Watkins approach -Aston Villa News

Everton have made an approach for Aston Villa over a possible move for Ollie Watkins, according to Football Insider.

The Lowdown: Watkins rumours

Vila have made five first-team signings this summer but are yet to add to their central attacking ranks.

Watkins and Danny Ings are Steven Gerrard’s current senior centre-forward options, with the latter of the two scoring his first goal of the season against the Toffees last weekend.

Reports earlier this month suggested that Villa were ready to part ways with Watkins, even claiming that the forward and Gerrard “do not see eye to eye”.

The Latest: Everton approach

Now, according to FI’s new report in the last 48 hours, Everton have made an approach to Villa regarding a move for Watkins.

They once again claim that Villa are open to moving the forward on and are working on bringing in an ‘A-list’ forward of their own.

Should Villa sell Watkins to Everton?

Yes, if the price is right!

No, keep!

No, keep!

The Verdict: A gamble

It looks as if Villa’s stance on Watkins hasn’t changed over the past ten days, and their resolve may well be tested should Everton make a formal offer.

Aston Villa fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the 21/22 season?

Selling Watkins before bringing in a replacement could be a big risk heading into the final stages of the summer window though, as Gerrard would then be left with just Ings and youngster Cameron Archer.

It seems as if this will be one to watch, so it’ll be interesting to see if Watkins, who Michael Owen called a ‘top, top player’, retains his place in the starting XI this afternoon.
