Anderlecht set asking price for reported Everton, Aston Villa target Dennis Praet

Aston Villa and Everton have both been linked with Dennis Praet this summer.

The talented midfielder looks set to leave Anderlecht this summer, and a report in Nieuwsblad claims that he has been listed for sale at roughly £10 million.

Praet, 21, is considered one of the best young players in Europe, and he has been linked with a summer move to two Premier League clubs in particular.

The Guardian reported that Everton have been looking at bringing the playmaker to England this summer, whilst the Telegraph claimed that Aston Villa were ready to offer £7 million for him.

The Nieuswblad report claims that Anderlecht are willing to engage in a transfer for Praet, but they have been able to knock his price up due to the incoming funds they will receive from the sales of Aleksandar Mitrovic and Chancel Mbemba to Newcastle.

There are no indications as to whether either Villa or Everton will submit a formal approach for Praet with his asking price now revealed.

Is Praet worth £10 million?

As a 21-year-old considered a star of the future, a £10 million fee seems incredibly low for Praet, and either club interested in him would be foolish not to try and sign him.

He is already a fully capped Belgian international, with over 100 club appearances to his name, having netted 21 goals and registered 30 assists for Anderlecht in 132 games.

Able to play anywhere behind the striker or in midfield, Praet is only going to increase in value as his reputation continues to increase, and moving for him now should be Everton and Villa’s priority for the summer transfer window.
