The 23-year-old Danish defender “Victor Nelsson” also known as the Danish lion is going to be one of th emost focussed deal of this summer. Villa Park is gearing up in what is said to be another scintillating transfer window this summer.
With a clear vision of Gerrard and club director Johan Lange, Aston Villa is looking for a major squad overhaul. The defense would be the perfect place to start for Aston Villa. Currently ranking 15th in the premier league conceding 46 goals with 6 games in hand.
Aston Villa has been monitoring Galatasaray defender Victor Nelsson who can also play in the midfield. Villa has now joined the likes of AC Milan and many other clubs who are in the race to sign the 23-year danish. Nelsson has featured in 42 matches across all competitions scoring and assisting once only. Nelsson was also part of the Galatasaray side in the goalless draw against FC Barcelona in Europa League.
Gerrard currently has 4 CB with two uncertain futures at Villa park. Mings has endured a significant drop in form with question marks still hanging over the head of Ezri konsa and his uncertain future. January transfer, Callum Chambers has been somewhere up to the mark but for no is not the solution. At 23 Nelsson is at the highest point he has ever been with a Transfermarkt valuation of 9 million.
Nelsson has a 25 million pound release clause in his contract with Galatasaray which runs until 2026. There’s nothing concrete about the transfer fee but will certainly be higher than the 6.3 million paid last summer. One thing is for sure with the recent development of interests from AC Milan, Florentina, Nelson is not going to come cheap.
Gerrard is also looking at Liverpool’s Joe Gomez who has been suffering from lack of game time and stiff competition. Gomez has been running through a bad patch of form and a move away from Anfield will help him to get back on track. German international Matthias Ginter, Kalvin Phillips, Yves Bissouma are also under Steven Gerrard’s radar.
