Aston Villa trio set to leave in January transfer window as Emery looks to bring in ex-Arsenal star Guendouzi

    ASTON VILLA are set to offload three players in a huge squad clear-out this month.

    That’s as Unai Emery prepares a £30million offer for ex-Arsenal star Matteo Guendouzi.

    The Birmingham Mail claims Marvelous Nakamba and Morgan Sanson are both set to leave Villa Park in the next 10 days.

    And Emery is already counting the cash after selling Danny Ings to West Ham for £15m today.

    The striker departs just 18 months after a £25m move from Southampton.

    But Nakamba is expected to depart Villa next after failing to make a single league appearance this term.

    And he could be followed by Sanson, who Emery is a fan of but admits needs regular minutes to realise his potential.

    The Frenchman joined Villa for £16m two years ago but has only managed 400 minutes of football.

    Emery declared: “Sanson is a possibility to leave, but for me is a very good player.

    “He understands very good how we want to play and he has the skills to do it.

    “But he has to play in a team to be consistent, trying to play more and here it’s difficult to give him it – he is as well finding something to leave.”

    Nakamba and Sanson’s departures would open the door for a new midfield signing.

    And it’s reckoned France international Guendouzi is top of Emery’s list.

    The duo worked together for several years at Arsenal, with Guendouzi keen on a reunion in the Premier League.

    He is currently a key man for Ligue 1 outfit Marseille, helping them to third in the table.

    The French giants are open to doing business this month, but Villa will have to pay a meaty £30m for the privilege.
