This article forms part of our What Does The Future Hold series, which is where Football Transfer Tavern takes a look at what potentially lies ahead for a player, manager or club.
Aston Villa winger Trezeguet has not always been a starter under Dean Smith in the current campaign, but the Villans should not act hasty and move the player on after just one season at the club.
Trezeguet, who has found himself in and out of Smith’s XI, has been linked with a move to Besiktas. However, the Egyptian has dismissed the speculation and made it known that his desire is to remain at Villa Park.
Speaking to KingFut, Trezeguet said: “I am linked to a contract for the next five years with Aston Villa, and I am committed to the contract. Playing in the English Premier League was a dream for me, so I am completely focused on that step.”
Trezeguet has shown signs of promise this season following his move from Kasimpasa last summer. The Egypt international has goals against Liverpool and Chelsea and netted the winner in the second leg of Villa’s Carabao Cup semi-final tie versus Leicester City.
He is also completing 1.1 dribbles per league game, the third-highest average in Smith’s squad, and is only being dispossessed 0.7 times a match (via WhoScored). And at 25 years of age, the attacker has time to improve.
Based on that, and the player expressing that he wants to stay, it is hard to imagine Trezeguet leaving the club so soon. He still has more to offer.
