Dean Smith’s Aston Villa side are currently sat in 19th place in the Premier League table.

Trabzonspor president Ahmet Agaoglu has suggested to Fotomac that they could raid relegated Premier League clubs, amid links with Aston Villa midfielder Marvelous Nakamba.

Nakamba has had a solid first season at Villa, even though Dean Smith’s side are struggling against the drop.

Nakamba has been one of the bright spots in what has been a difficult season at Villa, and certainly goes down as one of their better signings from last summer.

It seems that Trabzonspor see the quality that the Villa midfielder possesses as well.

And Agaoglu has hinted that his side will look to make moves for players of teams relegated from the Premier League, after reports that he wants Nakamba.

“We are following England,” he said. “It is more economically reasonable to get players from the teams falling from the league here.”

Villa are currently facing a massive fight to stay in the top flight, with Smith’s side sat in the relegation zone as thing stand.

The claret and blues are lying two points away from safety, although they do have a game in hand over many of their relegation rivals.
