Aston Villa ‘offered’ chance to complete striker transfer – reports

Aston Villa were linked with Genk striker Mbwana Samatta during the summer transfer window.

The 26-year-old scored an eye-catching 32 goals in all competitions last term as Genk won the Belgian Pro League, including 11 goals across their Europa League campaign.

Villa were among a number of Premier League sides credited with an interest, along with Brighton and Hove Albion, Leicester City and Burnley.

A transfer fee of £12m was quoted for Samatta and although Villa did use the Belgian market to strengthen their squad in attack, they opted to raid Club Brugge for frontman Wesley Moraes instead. Midfielder Marvelous Nakamba also arrived from the same club.£12m-Europa-League-striker.jpg”/>

Samatta has kept up his brilliant form for the new season, having scored four goals in as many matches as Genk go about trying to defend their league title.

Reports in Belgium claim the Tanzania captain was indeed ‘offered’ to Villa recently – but claim Sheffield United came closest to bringing him to the Premier League.

He is still attracting interest and Genk have upped the fee they are demanding in order to sell, according HLN.

It is claimed that Samatta’s asking price has now been bumped up to £15million to ward off potential interest from Russia and Turkey.

The transfer window in most of Europe remains open until September 2 with the deadline having passed for clubs in England’s top two tiers on August 8.
