According to reports in Turkey, via The Birmingham Mail, Aston Villa are showing an interest in Galatasaray defender Christian Luyindama.
Indeed, The Birmingham Mail have cited reports in Turkey when claiming that a £10.7m offer has been made for Luyindama.
That said, Aksam, via Sport Witness, have since written that whilst there is no offer currently on the table, Galatasaray would be open to a discussion.
The 25-year-old has only just completed a move to the Turkish giants following a loan spell last season.
Luyindama, who is a DR Congo international, largely operates as a defender, although he has also played in central midfield during his career.

Villa have already made a number of defensive signings this summer and therefore it would be somewhat of a surprise if Luyindama arrived.
The Villa fans have been on social media offering their views on the latest developments and a selection of their reaction can be seen below:
Literally don’t need anymore defenders

Apparently he’s a center back but can also play cdm and forward… saw that on Wikipedia not quite sure if it makes sense… big fella tho is 25 and plays for drc so I like it tbh
