Aston Villa are set to be offered the chance to sign centre-back Jannik Vestergaard in the January transfer window, with Leicester City happy to sell and the Villans hunting a new centre-back.
The Lowdown: Vestergaard out of favour at Leicester
The towering Dane joined the Foxes from Southampton last year but things haven’t gone to plan for him at the King Power Stadium to date.
Now, it looks as though Villa could be an option for the 30-year-old, should he move on.
The Latest: Villa move possible
According to Football Insider, the Villans are ‘set to be offered the chance’ to snap up Vestergaard in January, as Unai Emery eyes up a new centre-back.
The Verdict: Upgrade on current options?
Vestergaard’s stock has undoubtedly fallen since trading Southampton for Leicester but he is still someone who could be an influential signing for Villa, having made 82 appearances in the Premier League to date and impressing on the south coast.
Should Villa move for Conor Gallagher?
He was hailed as ‘outstanding’ by Alan Shearer with the Saints, averaging four clearances and 3.3 aerial duel wins per game for them back in 2020/21, highlighting what a dominant physical presence he can be in defence.
Vestergaard is still somewhere in and around his peak and he could prove to be an upgrade on the current options if he can re-find some confidence.
