Aston Villa and Watford are interested in raiding relegated Huddersfield Town for Dutch defender Terrence Kongolo, according to The Mail.
Newly promoted Villa were expected to make a splash in the transfer market this summer and, thanks to their billionaire owners, they haven’t wasted any time in reinforcing Dean Smith’s squad.
Wesley Moraes has already arrived for a club-record £22 million, joining Anwar El-Ghazi and former Birmingham City star Jota at Villa Park. Kortney Hause has signed permanently from Wolves with Tyrone Mings expected to follow in his footsteps.
And, according to The Mail, the Midland giants have also expressed an interest in the versatile former Monaco and Feyenoord ace Kongolo.
Huddersfield’s relegation means they will be powerless to prevent the 25-year-old, four time Holland international from leaving with Watford also interested in securing his services.
Kongolo joined The Terriers last summer for a record £17.5 million (Sky) after an impressive loan spell and Huddersfield will be hoping to recoup as much of that fee as possible.
Though he is a centre-back by trade, the Swiss-born powerhouse is equally comfortable at left-back with his mix of combativeness and athleticism perhaps making him the ideal man to solve Aston Villa’s long-standing problem position.
