Aston Villa negotiate deal for Charles De Ketelaere

Aston Villa are pressing hard to sign AC Milan attacking midfielder Charles De Ketelaere in the summer transfer window, as per journalist Antonio Vitiello

Villa are building a strong squad under Unai Emery and they have set their eye on the Belgian attacking midfielder who failed to make a strong impact at San Siro.

Last summer, the 22-year-old rejected Leeds United to join Milan, but the move didn’t work out for him. AC Milan are now looking to offload him and they are willing to listen to offers.

The Rosonerri spent around £30m for the midfielder and they are looking to recoup most of it. While have been interest from other clubs, it seems Villa are leading the race.

The TMW journalist claims that discussions are ongoing over the transfer of the Belgian.

Gazzetta dello Sport suggest that Villa have made a £21.5 million bid to sign De Ketelaere but Milan would like £25.7 million for the Belgian.

Villa have made two cracking signings already. Youri Tielemans has joined from Leicester City on a free transfer window, while Pau Torres has joined from Villarreal.

Emery is looking to build a strong squad around young players, and De Ketelaere is perfect for the role. While he may have underperformed in Italy, he can still prove to be an inspired signing for the club.

He can play in multiple roles across the forward line and has got the age and talent to prove himself in the Premier League.

As per GDS, the offer from Villa isn’t too far away from Milan’s asking price, so an agreement can be reached for the young midfielder in the next few days.
