Aston Villa very keen on Pape Matar Sarr

Aston Villa are thought to be very keen on signing the Metz midfielder Pape Matar Sarr.

According to Joris Crolbois from RMC Sport, the Premier League side are very interested in signing the 18-year-old defensive midfielder but other European clubs are keeping tabs on the player as well.

Sarr has already managed to establish himself as a key player for the League 1 side and he chipped in with four goals in 25 appearances for the French outfit this past season.

The youngster can operate as a central midfielder and in an advanced role as well and he has a big future ahead of him.

Crolbois claims that the player could cost around €25 to 30 million this summer.

It will be interesting to see if Villa are prepared to follow up on their interest with a concrete offer now.

There is no doubt that they need to add more depth and quality to the defensive midfield department and Sarr could be a quality long term investment.

Aston Villa have made an impressive start to the transfer window with the signing of Emiliano Buendia and they have been linked with the Southampton midfielder James Ward-Prowse as well.

It is evident that Dean Smith is looking to improve his midfield considerably this summer. Villa already have an impressive defensive unit and they will be looking to push for European qualification by improving the other areas of their squad now.
