Aston Villa: Villans set to make Otavio offer -Aston Villa News

Aston Villa are reportedly set to make a €30m offer for FC Porto forward Otavio in the coming days.

The Lowdown: Otavio profiled

Otavio is primarily a winger who can play anywhere in attack or even in a deeper midfield role. The 27-year-old has made 237 appearances for Porto after joining in 2014, contributing to 86 goals during that time.

The Portugal international has netted 38 goals during his entire club career so far and is valued at a career-high £27m by Transfermarkt, the highest number of any player at Porto, a club renowned for cashing in on top talents.

The Latest: Villa bid

According to journalist Sergio Pires of Portuguese outlet Maisfutebol, Villa will make a €30m (£25.8m) offer for Otavio in the coming days.

Villa’s pending bid will also include €5m in add-ons for the player, who has a €40m release clause that expires on July 15.

The Verdict: One in one out?

Steven Gerrard has a number of wingers on the books at Villa Park but is set to lose one in Trezeguet. The 27-year-old appears to be on the verge of joining Trabzonspor after a £4.25m fee was agreed between the two clubs.

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

Otavio, labelled as an ‘exciting’ forward by ESPN commentator Marc Lewis, could well be the man to come in to bolster Villa’s attacking ranks, and he’d certainly bring plenty of creativity after scoring five times and registering 14 assists in 2021/22.

He can also play anywhere in attack or in midfield, so his versatility could also be a big asset, especially with Gerrard tinkering with numerous formations last season.
