Aston Villa were involved in one of the biggest transfer deals the Premier League has ever seen last summer when they sold Jack Grealish to Manchester City for a fee of £100m.
Now that the next summer window is on the horizon, it seems as though the Villans and Steven Gerrard could be set to cash in on another player that has been a part of the club for a fairly significant period of time.
According to Football Insider’s sources, Norwich City are eyeing up a summer transfer move for striker Keinan Davis.
The report also claims that Gerrard is expected to give the green light to allow the striker to leave Villa Park this summer, with a reported transfer fee of £4m being touted for Davis’ signature.
In those appearances, the striker found the back of the net 16 times and delivered 16 assists along the way.
Back in the previous January transfer window, the Englishman joined Championship club, Nottingham Forest, on loan until the end of the season.
Since joining the Reds, the 24-year-old has scored five goals and provided three assists in 19 appearances across the Championship and FA Cup.
To highlight how impressive the Villa man has been on loan, he is currently listed as Forest’s highest-rated player by WhoScored with a rating of 7.27.
He is also listed in the top five out of Forest’s players for the average of shots, key passes and dribbles per game he’s made in the second division.
Unfortunately, the attacker will have to spend the rest of the season on the sidelines after picking up a campaign-ending injury.
Having been described as being “a very difficult player to play against” by Lee Bowyer, Davis has shown that he has what it takes to play in the Championship and be an effective striker.
However, with only one goal in 34 Premier League appearances to his name for Villa, it’s safe to say that he hasn’t been able to cut it at that level.
With Norwich now looking likely to get relegated, it’s easy to see why they would want a player like the Villa loanee, who Dean Smith knows about, in their ranks for next season.
If Villa pick up a suitable transfer fee for the striker that they can then put towards adding some top-quality players to their squad, this would surely be great news for Gerrard.
