According to French outlet L’Equipe (via footballclubdemarseille) Ligue 1 side Marseille are keen on Aston Villa’s Jordan Amavi – worrying our Villans here in the Transfer Tavern.
Our resident Villa supporters here by the bar had been feeling more upbeat in recent times with the way Steve Bruce has got them playing.
They now look like a far more cohesive unit than they were under Roberto Di Matteo and from looking at League 1 prospects they now have a genuine chance of bouncing back into the Premier League at the first time of asking.
One of their key players in doing so, though, is Jordan Amavi who has impressed at full back during his time at the club.
He’s well into double figures for the season in terms of appearances and so, should he move, he’d undoubtedly be a big miss.
Indeed, with Marseille looking at him, such an eventuality really could happen and our landlord thinks Steve Bruce would have to act quickly in January to minimise the possible negative impact it could have on his team.
How big a miss could Amavi be, Villa fans? Let us know below!
