Aston Villa: Trezeguet attracts Galatasaray’s interest

Aston Villa: Trezeguet attracts Galatasaray’s interest -Aston Villa Transfer Rumours

Galatasaray are keen to bring Aston Villa winger Trezeguet back to the Turkish Super Lig, according to Takvim.

The lowdown

Villa signed the 27-year-old from Kasimpasa back in 2019 for a fee of £8.75m. He had been directly involved in 38 goals in 65 games in the Turkish top-flight, scoring 22 and setting up another 16.

The ‘incredible’ Egypt international -as hailed by Gregg Evans – has played 63 times for Aston Villa, but his last action came back in April. He sustained a knee ligament injury in a Premier League clash with Liverpool and had to undergo surgery (via The Athletic).

The latest

As per Takvim, Galatasaray have learned that Trezeguet isn’t part of Steven Gerrard’s plans at Villa Park, and his representative has held talks with the Europa League club.

Off the back of those discussions, the Istanbul outfit’s manager Fatih Terim has approved a move for the 27-year-old.

The verdict

Intriguingly, Football Insider reported last month that Steven Gerrard had come to the conclusion that he had too many wide attacking players in his squad. Even though he’s not had a chance to impress the new boss yet, it seems that the Egyptian could be shown the door in order to redress the balance.

Trezeguet featured in 21 league matches in 2020/21 but Villa signed Leon Bailey and Emiliano Buendia in the summer, and that appears to have hurt his starting prospects.

Villa could bank decent money from the sale of the 27-year-old, who is valued at £9m by Transfermarkt, and put it towards recruitment for Gerrard.

In other news, lots of Villa fans were reacting to this Premier League decision.
