Aston Villa are expected to make a ‘serious offer’ for Galatasaray defender Victor Nelsson.
The Lowdown: Nelsson profiled
Nelsson, a Denmark international, is 23 years of age and is primarily a centre-back who can also play in midfield.
How many signings do Villa need to make this summer?
The Latest: Villa interest
Reports from Turkey on Wednesday looked at six Galatasaray players who have been catching the eye across Europe.
One of those was Nelsson, with Aston Villa the only side name-checked with an interest, reportedly ready to make a ‘serious offer’ in the summer.
The Verdict: Needed?
Therefore, a number of defensive reinforcements may well be required ahead of Gerrard’s first full season in charge, with Nelsson possibly one of those.
Nelsson is at the top of his game with a career-high £9m Transfermarkt valuation, and you’d like to think he still has room for improvement, potentially at Bodymoor Heath.
