Mahmoud ‘Trezeguet’ Hassan has just handed Aston Villa and Watford a major boost by making it clear to Kasimpasa that his time with the Turkish Super Lig outfit has come to an end, according to Takvim.
The speedy winger has been one of the stand-out stars at this summer’s African Cup of Nations, firing Egypt into the last 16 while outshining Liverpool superstar Mo Salah along the way.
And he could be rewarded with a move to England. The Sun claims that Aston Villa are set to make an £8 million bid for Trezeguet, named after the former Juventus and France star, while Watford are also interested if Fanatik are to be believed.
According to Takvim, Trezeguet has no interest in staying at Kasimpasa for a second season, telling the club’s management that he wants to leave this summer.
"I have completed my mission here. I want to go now,” they report the former Anderlecht star as saying.
At £8 million, Trezeguet has the potential to be Aston Villa’s best pound-for-pound signing in what is already shaping up to be a transformative transfer window. The Midland giants have spent over £50 million already though the Egyptian ace would provide rapid pace and the ability to breeze past opponents at will.
He, Jack Grealish and Anwar El-Ghazi could form one of the Premier League’s most exciting attacking trios, particularly if new centre-forward Wesley Moraes can put away the chances they create.
