Aston Villa: Set to win race for Trezeguet

Aston Villa: Set to win race for Trezeguet - Aston Villa

Aston Villa are set to beat Sampdoria to the signing of Kasimpasa winger Trezeguet, having met the Turkish club’s asking price, according to Tutto Mercato Web, via The Birmingham Mail.

Kasimpasa had demanded €15million for the Egypt international, which Sampdoria weren’t willing to meet, while Villa were.

It is believed that had Trezeguet been given the option between the two, he would have chosen the Premier League anyway.

Trezeguet started 34 league matches for Kasimpasa last season, scoring nine goals and assisting another nine, predominantly featuring on the left-wing.

He scored a variety of goals throughout the season, showing a divine first touch at times with a brilliant example coming against Ankaragucu, while some of his strikes were wonderfully placed efforts and others based off instinct.

The Egypt international was often active in games, as he took 4 shots, made 2.3 key passes, dribbled 3.3 times and was fouled 1.9 times per game.

Trezeguet would most likely be up against Anwar El Ghazi for the starting spot on Villa’s left-wing after the Dutchman was re-signed following his season at Villa Park on loan.

He started 28 leagues games and came on six times, scoring six goals and assisting six. The former Ajax man didn’t have as much of an impact in games, as he took 1.9 shots, made 1.3 key passes, completed 1.2 dribbles and was fouled 0.9 times per game.

Aston Villa don’t necessarily need a winger considering their current options in the likes of El-Ghazi and Jota, but the option to sign Trezeguet for €15 million is a very good opportunity to strengthen the club’s attacking line.

It may be seen as a risk to sign somebody from a lesser league, but this has widely been the approach Villa have taken this window, by signing players such as Wesley, so it appears they are willing to gamble.
