French full-back Jordan Amavi is keen to leave Aston Villa this summer
Monday, June 19, 2017
The 23-year-old joined Villa from Nice in 2015 but had his first season in England blighted by a long-term injury – and the Birmingham club were relegated.
Amavi played 34 times in the Championship this season but has now revealed that he wants to move back to a top-flight club when the window opens.
Liverpool were keen on signing the 23-year-old left-back last summer while Southampton have also held an interest in him since Villa were relegated.
And Amavi says a move back into the Premier League would appeal to him.
He told L’Equipe: “I want to play in Europe, in a club that plays on all fronts.
“There are clubs that come to ask and we discuss it even if there is nothing concrete yet.
“I love the Premier League, it’s a Championship that I like, but I’m open to other countries.
“If the sporting challenge is interesting, I will go ahead, I will not think.”
