Aston Villa fans do not want to sell Bjarnason

Birkir Bjarnason is currently being linked with a move away from Aston Villa in this summer’s transfer window.

The 30-year-old joined Villa from FC Basel in January 2017, and he has scored four times and registered three assists in 37 appearances for his English club in all competitions.

Last term, Bjarnason, who is believed to be attracting interest from Italy, scored three times in 23 Championship appearances as Steve Bruce’s side reached the final of the playoffs before losing to Fulham.

The midfielder, who is valued at £1.8m by Transfermarkt, is currently with Iceland at the 2018 World Cup, but his nation have failed to make it through the group stages of this summer’s tournament.

According to Takvim, Trabzonspor are extremely interested in signing Bjarnason this summer, and the Villa supporters have been reacting to the transfer speculation.

There are some Villa fans who are entirely against the sale, and others have put extortionate values on the midfielder, which is just another way of saying that the Iceland international should be kept ahead of the new Championship season.
