Reports from France indicate that Aston Villa have made a bid for Nice left-back Jordan Amavi. Other reports have indicated that Tim Sherwood doesn’t rate Cissokho and is looking to sell the left-back that arrived from Valencia last summer transfer window.
The reports from France claim that Nice are interested in discussing a deal with Aston Villa, with Lyon, Atletico Madrid, Arsenal also linked with the young left-back.
Below is a chart that compares the players key stats against Robertson (who Villa have been linked with) and Cissokho and Richardson:
Amavi is a very young defender (age 21) and has had a very good season with Nice. This would be a great coup by Sherwood because Amavi would be a player that would be capable of filling the left-back position for Villa for a number of years. With other top teams also interested in Amavi it shows that this is a talented player, but Sherwood will have his work cut out in order to convince Amavi to join Villa in favour of Lyon or other European giants.
