Trabzonspor eyeing Aston Villa midfielder Marvelous Nakamba

Trabzonspor are eyeing Aston Villa midfielder Marvelous Nakamba.

The Zimbabwean had a mixed first year in the Premier League, making 23 starts as his club avoided relegation on the final day of the season, but he still has admirers across the continent, says the Daily Mail.

Trabzonspor have also looked at Villa winger Trezeguet as they look to make an assault on European football after finishing second in the Super Lig in 2019-20, and they believe Nakamba, 26, would fit their midfield requirements.

Villa paid Club Brugge about £11million for Nakamba as part of the £140m they spent on transfer after promotion from the Championship, and it is unlikely Trabzonspor would offer a similar amount. It is thought, instead, that they would be keen on an initial loan deal.
