Aston Villa and Norwich City are 'weighing up deals' for the Royal Antwerp right-back, Daniel Opare, according to The Sun.

Interest is said to be hotting up in Opare, who played 24 times for the Belgian side last season.

 

And it is claimed the Ghanaian could be available for as little as £500,000 as he enters the final year of his contract.

A new right-back is likely to feature on the agendas of both Aston Villa and Norwich this summer, with the pair releasing Alan Hutton and Ivo Pinto, respectively.

Opare would do well to become an immediate starter at either club, however, with Aston Villa having already paid around £4.4 million for Frederic Guilbert (above) and Norwich's Max Aarons recently named in the Championship's team of the season.

The 28-year-old spent part of his early career at Real Madrid, and has since turned out for European giants, Porto and Besiktas.

Would Opare be a good addition for Aston Villa / Norwich City?
