Aston Villa: Reporter shares Nicolas Jackson update

Aston Villa: Reporter shares Nicolas Jackson update - Aston Villa News

Football Insider reporter Pete O’Rourke has shared an update regarding Aston Villa’s interest in Villarreal forward Nicolas Jackson.

The Lowdown: Jackson interest

NSWE have promised Unai Emery a ‘huge’ 2023 transfer budget, with a new forward seemingly on the Spaniard’s wishlist.

Reports claimed that Emery has ‘instructed his new club to move quickly and try to sign’ Jackson, with the Senegal international featuring on 27 occasions under the now Villa boss for Villarreal.

Premier League rivals Newcastle United also appear to be keen on the centre-forward who can also play out wide, and a further update has emerged.

The Latest: Transfer update

O’Rourke shared the news on Jackson in the last 24 hours, revealing that Villarreal are demanding that Villa activate Jackson’s £30m release clause if they are to sell over the coming weeks.

Emery is leading Villa’s pursuit of the attacker and the Midlands club still hope to seal a deal under that figure.

Quiz time! Villa fans, do you know how much Coutinho set the club back?

The Verdict: Get it done

Jackson has progressed through Villarreal’s youth system and Emery was the man to give him a chance at first team level. The Villa boss still seems to be a big admirer of the player, who would provide a versatile option in the final third at Villa Park.

The January window could also be the best time for NSWE to make their move due to his growing reputation and current release clause, so it may be wise to look to finalise a transfer relatively quickly.
