Plenty of Aston Villa fans have been reacting to the club’s reported interest in Stade de Reims left-back Ghislain Konan.
According to the Daily Mail, Villa are monitoring the 25-year-old, who is thought to be open to a Premier League switch this summer.
Southampton are also thought to be keen on Konan, who would cost around £5.1m.
The Ivory Coast international has been a regular for Reims this season, making 32 appearances in all competitions. He’s scored twice and provided one assist this season, and should he move to the Midlands, he could provide competition to Matt Targett.
Targett has starred under Dean Smith during the current campaign, starting every league fixture in the 2020/21 season, and was rewarded with a contract extension through to 2025 last month.
Can Smith ever take Villa to European football?
Villa fans react
@villareport shared the links to Konan on Twitter on Tuesday afternoon. These fans all seemed to be happy at the update, with one describing the full-back as ‘unreal’.
“Good, exactly what we need. Cheap decent LB”
“Back up left backkkkk finally”
“love him wow what a player”
“unreal left back him”
“If it’s for the 5.5m touted as a back up I’m all for it”
“This would be a good signing!!!”
