Do Not Sell My Personal Information

Journalist wouldn’t be surprised if Aston Villa let Anwar El Ghazi go

Express & Star journalist Luke Hatfield has told Football FanCast that he would not be surprised if Aston Villa listened to offers for Anwar El Ghazi this summer.

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.

Should Villa sell El Ghazi?





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.”

El Ghazi certainly is a player worth keeping around the squad. Last season, the former Lille and Ajax star scored 10 goals in the Premier League, playing on both flanks under manager Dean Smith.
