According to reports in The Mirror, Aston Villa striker Keinan Davis is a target for Manchester United, Arsenal and Everton, but Villa fans have told the interested parties to keep their “hands off”.
The Mirror says that the aforementioned trio of clubs all scouted the 19-year-old in the 4-0 win against Burton Albion at the Pirelli Stadium on Tuesday night, and they would have been impressed with the teenager’s all-round performance up top alongside Jonathan Kodjia.
The centre-forward showed his strength and pace and he scored his side’s opening goal in the victory with a thumping header, which would have impressed those watching on.
Aston Villa supporters were quick to have their say on the rumour via social media, and while some simply said “hands off”, others believe the club “better win promotion” if they want to have a chance of keeping hold of the impressive youngster.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…

Best learn the trade in regular game time rather than splinters on a bench
