Aston Villa make Nicolas Jackson enquiry

Aston Villa make Nicolas Jackson enquiry - Aston Villa News

Aston Villa have made an enquiry for Villarreal attacker Nicolas Jackson, according to a new transfer update.

The Lowdown: Emery knows Jackson well

Unai Emery recently replaced Steven Gerrard in the Villa Park hot seat and he is sure to delve into the transfer market in the January transfer window as he looks to put his own imprint on the squad.

One player who he knows well is Jackson, with the pair working together recently at Villarreal, and he has scored and assisted twice apiece in La Liga so far this season.

Villa have already been linked with a move for the versatile speedster and a new report has emerged regarding their interest in him.

The Latest: Villa make enquiry

According to Football Insider, the Villans have now ‘made an enquiry’ for the Villarreal winger, with Emery planning to ‘strengthen his squad’ next month.

The 21 year-old is believed to have been on his former manager’s radar ever since he took charge at Villa, as the boss wants an attacker who can play up front or on the flank.

The Verdict: Great option to bring in

Jackson could be an exciting January addition for Villa, with his relationship with Emery an immediate positive regarding the potential transfer.

Should Villa move for Conor Gallagher?





The pair’s relationship at Villarreal was clearly strong and the Senegalese sensation could be a long-term signing who develops into a formidable wide player over time.

The fact that Jackson has been described as the ‘next Sadio Mane’ – a Ballon d’Or runner up – speaks volumes about both his ability and potential, and his pace and trickery could add another dimension to a Villa attack that has looked blunt at times this season.
