French media outlet L’Equipe have reported that Spanish side Atletico Madrid are interested in signing Jordan Amavi. The La Liga side are looking to replace the likely departure of Theo Hernandez and provide cover for Filipe Luis.
The Frenchman is likely to leave Villa Park this summer with a flurry of outgoings expected and will could leave for 10-12m€. Napoli are also interested in signing the former Nice defender.
Amavi joined Villa in the summer of 2015 for a total of £9.35m and Dr. Tony Xia apparently turned down a £25m bid from China for the defender last summer.
The Villa faithful had high hopes for the full back but was hindered by injury during the 2015/16 season playing for France U21’s and hasn’t had the same impact for the team since.
There is no doubt that under the right coaching Amavi will become a very good left back but I don’t think its going to happen at the Villa so I think if a good amount is offered then Xia should accept the offer to raise funds to bring in quality additions.
Would you be willing to sell him for the right price?
