Aston Villa: Fans react to club’s standpoint over Ollie Watkins fee

Aston Villa: Fans react to club’s standpoint over Ollie Watkins fee - Aston Villa Transfer Rumours

Many Aston Villa fans have reacted to a report that claims the club are looking to negotiate a lower transfer fee with Brentford for striker Ollie Watkins.

Championship striker Watkins was one of the most in-form goalscorers in English football last season, netting an impressive 25 goals and gaining three assists in 46 appearances during the 2019/20 season.

Narrowly missing out on promotion to the Premier League with the Bees, the 24-year-old is now gaining interest from a number of top-flight sides, including Villa.

With Transfermarkt setting Watkins’ value at £10.8m, the striker, who was signed by Dean Smith at Griffin Park when the Villa boss was in charge, is now set to be subject of a bid from the Villans ahead of a potential summer move.

Villa, who struggled to find a regular goalscorer last term, are said to be in negotiations over a deal but a reported asking price of £25m is proving to be a sticking point.

Daily Mail report that the Midlands are looking for a deal worth around the £18m mark and that has led fans to respond. One even suggested they should offer £15m but include ex-Bees striker Scott Hogan as part of the deal…
