Aston Villa are reportedly closing in on Egyptian winger Trezeguet, who is set to join for €11 million.
Turkish outlet TRT Spor, cited by the Birmingham Mail, insist that Villa have beaten Serie A side Sampdoria to the wide man’s signature, with the Italian side refusing to match Villa’s bid.
Italian outlet, Tuttomercatoweb, go on to add that a deal is “all done”, which would see the 24-year-old become the club’s ninth summer signing.
Trezeguet currently plies his trade with Turkish side Kasimpasa and recently represented his country at the Africa Cup of Nations, with Villa boss Dean Smith flying to Egypt to watch the exciting winger live.
Smith has already made eight summer signings ahead of the club’s top-flight return, including two wingers in Anwar El Ghazi and Jota.
However, it appears as if he will add a third wide man to his ranks in Trezeguet, with Villa’s squad shaping up nicely ahead of their first Premier League fixture against Tottenham on August 10.
