El Ghazi started in Villa’s 3-2 defeat to Watford last weekend, but his future at Villa Park looks far from certain if reports are to be believed.
According to Football Insider, the Midlands club would accept a bid of £15-17m for the 26-year-old winger, with Jose Mourinho and AS Roma thought to be interested in his services.
Hatfield does not believe Villa are desperate to get rid of El Ghazi, though he can imagine a scenario where they accept an offer for the Dutchman before the transfer window closes. He told FFC:
“There are reports that Villa are open to selling El Ghazi. He’s been a really good servant for Villa.
“But in terms of a move, it wouldn’t surprise me if Villa were happy to listen to offers. But in the same respect, I don’t think they’re desperate to get rid of him. He offers cover that they need in the wide positions.”
