Villa set to secure Trezeguet signature after fee agreed reports
Aston Villa have reportedly agreed a fee in the region of 11 million euros to sign Kasimpasa’s Egyptian forward Trezeguet.
The 24-year-old, whose real name is Mahmoud Hassan, signed permanent terms with Turkish outfit Kasimpasa last summer after spending the previous season on loan at the Recep Tayyip Erdogan Stadium.
After scoring 13 Super Lig goals from 31 outings in 2017-18, he bagged nine from 34 top-flight appearances last term, enough to catch the eye of a number of top European clubs.
Villa are already believed to have bid around 7.
5m euros for Trezeguet, but Kasimpasa were thought to be holding out for 15m euros before they would contemplate a sale.
Reports in Italy claim Villa had matched the Istanbul-based side’s valuation, although a Turkish news outlet TRT Spor is suggesting the fee is closer to 11m euros.
Trezeguet will be free to move to Villa Park having returned to his club from the Africa Cup of Nations in his homeland, where he played in all of Egypt’s games.
He is set to become Villa boss Dean Smith’s ninth new signing of the summer transfer window.
