Report: Arsenal are keen on former Aston Villa star

Arsenal are keen on signing former Aston Villa star Jordan Amavi, according to French source L’Equipe (via the Sun).

After leaving Villa in the summer of 2017, the former France U-21 international has been a first-team regular for Marseille.

Amavi’s contract with Marseille is due to end at the end of the current season, meaning that he will be able to join another club on a free transfer.

The 26-year-old may be tempted by a return to the Premier League at this point of his career, and so a move to Arsenal could appeal to him.

Amavi made ten Premier League appearances in Villa’s disastrous 2015/16 top-flight campaign, which saw them relegated to the Championship.

He was a first-team regular for the Midlands club in the following season. 

The Gunners will be looking for new left-back in the summer after allowing Sead Kolasinac to move to Schalke on loan.

Now that he is a more mature and technically better player than he was in his early 20s, Amavi may be tempted to return to the Premier League.

A move to the Gunners may also aide his chances of winning selection to the French national team.
