Aston Villa are reportedly interested in signing Villarreal midfielder Yeremy Pino. Arsenal were also linked with a move in the summer transfer window.
However, in the end the Gunners did not make a move for him. Although, there is a chance that Unai Emery will immediately haunt his former club.
ASTON VILLA AND YEREMY PINO TRANSFER LINKS FULL STORY
According to reports, Aston Villa are interested in signing Yeremy Pino. The midfielder plays for Villareal. He is one of the first names on the team sheet for the La Liga team. However, there is a chance that a Premier League move will tempt him. The Premier League club have decided to sack Steven Gerrard. Hence, they brought in Unai Emery as his replacement from Villarreal.
Therefore, it is clear that Unai is looking to haunt back his former club. The report also claims that the La Liga club will demand a fee of at least 25 million from Aston Villa. Although, the valuation is not going to put the Premier League club off. The reports also claim that the owners are ready to back Emery with big money war chest in the January transfer window.
UNAI EMERY WILL ALSO LOOK TO HAUNT ONE OF HIS FORMER SIDE
The move by Aston Villa for Yeremy Pino will also hurt the likes of Arsenal. This is because the Gunners have also admired the player. The report also claims that Mikel Arteta loves the player for a number of years. Hence, this would be a big loss for Arsenal to lose on a talented midfielder. They already have lost to Newcastle United for Bruno Guimaraes in the last January transfer window. Hence, it looks like the Gunners are close to losing another transfer battle in January.
However, the news will be very good news for the Villa fans. Another report also claims that Unai Emery wants to sign the likes of Pau Torres and Nicolas Jackson. Hence, it looks like Unai Emery is looking to bring the core of the Villarreal team to Aston Villa. However, the transfers are going to cost a lot of money and persuasion. This is because the Premier League club is far off competing for trophies and the Champions League.
The Aston Villa owners, players, and fans will hope that Unai Emery can finally fulfill their European ambitions. Unai Emery has started his managerial journey with a 3-1 win against Manchester United. Therefore, things for Emery have got off to a brilliant start at Villa Park.
