Aston Villa have been reportedly keen on the services of Club Brugge midfielder Marvelous Nakamba.
Aston Villa supporters on Twitter have provided a mixed reaction to reports that one of their targets Marvelous Nakamba has opted to go on strike in order to engineer a move to the Premier League club.
French outlet Le Soir have claimed that midfielder Nakamba has been left angry at Club Brugge seemingly rejecting a £10 million bid for his services from Villa.
It is fair to say that the Villa supporters didn’t know what to make of Nakamba’s actions, as he is seemingly adamant on moving to the Midlands outfit this summer.
Nakamba recently competed in the Africa Cup of Nations for his home country of Zimbabwe as he would have no doubt been given an extended holiday when his team were knocked out.
Villa are yet to sign a central midfielder this summer and a player like Nakamba would help add more depth in Dean Smith’s squad this summer.
The newly-promoted side have been pretty busy during this summer transfer window, and have done very well in bringing in as many players before pre-season really kicks off.
It remains to be seen whether Nakamba will be one of Villa’s captures before the window closes at the start of August, as Smith will no doubt add another midfielder to his ranks.
Nonetheless, some Villa fans were critical of Nakamba’s actons because they feel he could act the same if he ever wanted to leave the club in the near future.
Here is a selection of Villa fans on Twitter reacting to Nakamba’s actions:
What happens if he ever wants to leave Villa?— Mattston Villa (@MattcayleyM) July 15, 2019
He was awful in the one AFCON game he played vs Egypt. A total non factor. Midfield enforcer? Not on that performance. His big chance to shine and he gave zero effort and hustle.— Steve Stevil (@slunt702) July 15, 2019
Talk about throwing your toys out the pram— Russy (@RusVeli86) July 15, 2019
For anyone who says he was a bad temperament you should know he wasn’t played much last year and was promised a move— Ain’tNobodyLikeElGhazi (@AintNobodyLike4) July 15, 2019
Never keen on players who engineer moves by going on strike. Mind moves to thoughts of mercenaries like Alpay and Hodge. Just doesn’t sit easy— Richard E (@Richard80711135) July 15, 2019
If this is true, do we want someone as unprofessional as that?— Kevin Cooper (@coops987) July 15, 2019
Hmmm I’m all for players wanting to come but is this behaviour an early indication of what he is going to be like, i.e. doesn’t get his way and it’s public airing of laundry of the club— Gav1827 (@GV18271) July 15, 2019
