Villa consider move for City striker target

Published Add your comment

Aston Villa are considering a move for free agent David Trezeguet who has also attracted interest from Swansea reports the Daily Mail.

The 33-year-old former Juventus striker left Hercules and is on the lookout for a new club, with his agent reportedly claiming his client is after wages of around £28,000 a week after tax.

Swansea boss Brendan Rodgers has made a number of extravagant attempts to lure a big name signing to the Liberty Stadium, ahead of the Swans' debut in the Barclays Premier League, having previously failed in a bid to bring Spanish international Marcos Senna to South Wales from Villarreal.

It appears that Trezeguet has also been spoken about with Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins, but so far there have been no developments, which has given Aston Villa chance to hijack the potential deal.


Villa boss Alex McLeish has already made it clear he will not be able to bring any further players to Villa Park this summer without relieving some of his wage bill - so will have to move quickly to release the required funds to cover Trezeguet's wages in order to take him to the West Midlands.

The Frenchman's agent, Antonio Caliendo, claims Aston Villa made an approach two weeks ago and that talks are still ongoing, but Napoli, Nice and Terek Grozny are also keen on striking a deal for the World Cup winner.
