Jorge Mendes “probes” before potential 10 million euro transfer to Aston Villa – Reports


Jorge Mendes would be in contact with clubs to provide Anwar El Ghazi with an emergency exit from Aston Villa, should the club be relegated this season.El Ghazi signed definitively for Villa last summer after taking advantage of a successful championship loan.

Although his form in the Premier League has been uneven, he has been a regular at Dean Smith, playing in 25 of Villa’s 28 league games.

But according to AreaNapoli (via Sport Witness), the Dutchman has no plans to stay with the club if he were to be relegated to the championship.

Mendes is therefore preparing the ground for a possible summer transfer and probing potential interested parties.

The report says that Napoli has been contacted about a possible summer offer for the Villa winger, with an “information exchange” already underway.

The fees mentioned are around 10 million euros, which would see the villa lose money on the 8 million pounds they paid for it just 12 months ago.

El Ghazi still has three years on his contract at Villa and promises to play a key role in the decision of the division in which they will meet next season.
