According to the Birmingham Mail, Aston Villa are said to have bid around the £9 million mark for the 21-year-old who is tipped to develop into a future star. Playing in Ligue 1 last season Amavi, who has been capped at France’s under-21 level, was one of the league’s outstanding defenders and has therefore caught the attention of numerous clubs.
In terms of interest coming from the Premier League, it is Aston Villa who are in the driving seat which is news that our resident Villa supporters are joyfully raising a pint in celebration to here at the transfer tavern.
Apparently Nice are ecstatic about the bid feeling that it is just too good to turn down. But with the left-back yet to agree personal terms with the Villains it is still up to manager Tim Sherwood and his staff to necessarily sweeten the deal to ensure that the player does in fact make the move.
Villa narrowly avoided the drop last season and with the future of top players like Christian Benteke still up in the air Sherwood needs to start getting some fresh blood into the squad, or risk another dodgy and ultimately nail-biting campaign.
