Reports from Cairo, Egypt, suggest that Warriors midfielder Marvelous Nakamba has attracted the interest of English Premier League returnees Aston Villa.


According to The Chronicle, Villa are prepared to pay £20m for the services of the 25-year-old Club Brugge midfielder, who is currently in camp with the Warriors preparing for the AFCON finals which start on Friday.


In actual fact, based on the reports, Villa were willing to pay the amount even before AFCON, but Brugge refused because Nakamba’s value might increase if he impreses at Africa’s greatest football showpiece.


Aston Villa returned to the Premier League courtesy of a play-off victory over Derby County and are looking to strengthen their squad for the upcoming season.
