Aston Villa: Galatasaray in Trezeguet talks

Aston Villa: Galatasaray in Trezeguet talks -Aston Villa Transfer Rumours

Aston Villa are in talks with Galatasaray over a potential exit for Trezeguet, according to Turkish outlet Fanatik (via Sport Witness).

The lowdown

The Super Lig outfit will be familiar with Trezeguet, who played for Kasimpasa before he joined Villa in a £9million deal in 2019.

Villa have already allowed one wide player to leave the club this month, with Anwar El-Ghazi joining Everton on loan. That agreement additionally includes an option to buy at the end of the season.

Egyptian international Trezeguet is currently representing his country at the Africa Cup of Nations, and it’s unclear if that might delay any transfer.

The latest

The report states that there are ‘hot developments’ coming out of the Istanbul-based club.

They’ve begun negotiations with Villa as they look to land 27-year-old Trezeguet.

But there’s a need to ‘raise funds’ before any deal can be completed.

The verdict

It’s hard to say how much Gerrard values Trezeguet because he only returned from a long-term knee injury last month.

Since then, he’s played just 10 Premier League minutes, but Villa may be managing his return to action very carefully.

Gerrard’s 4-3-2-1 system, described as a ‘Christmas tree’ formation, may not be the best-suited to traditional wingers because it involves a relatively narrow front three.

So from that point of view it may be wise to cash in on Trezeguet, who retains his £9million value after 14 direct goal involvements in 64 appearances.

In other news, could this be a potential CB signing for Villa?
