Bertrand Traore, Lyon attacker is close to sign a deal with Aston Villa.
According to Nicolo Schira, the transfer is nearing completion and the player has now passed his medical examination with the Premier League club. The player is going to sign a four-year deal with the club.
This summer for the winger the Villans will pay around €21 million-plus extra.
Dean Smith needed to add more speed and flair to his attack, and Traore could prove to be a useful option for his side. Alongside Grealish and Watkins, the former Chelsea player is going to complete Villa’s attacking trio.
The 25-year-old will have a point to prove in the Premier League, and it will be interesting to see if he manages to settle down quickly and make an immediate impact on Aston Villa.
The Premier League side looking to secure the top half finish this season, they barely managed to survive the drop last year.
So far they’ve had an impressive transfer window, and it’s going to be interesting to see how the new signings will work in the coming weeks.
Before the final details of the transfer can be sorted out, Villa is now waiting for a work permit.
