Luyindama made 32 appearances across all competitions for Galatasaray, scoring two goals and supplying one assist in return.

The 26-year-old is considered to be one of the best defenders in DR Congo. As a member of DR Congo national football team, Luyindama won 7 caps.

Dean Smith is looking to shore up his defensive options and Galatasaray’s Luyindama happens to be a target.

The 26-year-old has been long term target of Smith as the manager look to bolster his defensive options for the next season.

Christian Luyindama has the talent to play many roles in defense.

According to the report, “Aston Villa are once again looking at Galatasaray defender Christian Luyindama. The DR Congo international was a target for Dean Smith during the January transfer window. But Luyindama suffered a terrible knee injury in November that required surgery. RTBF in Belgium reports that Villa will reassess their interest in the 26-year-old this upcoming summer. West Ham United and Everton have recently been linked with the centre-back.”


A big money bid from Aston Villa could tempt Galatasaray into selling their prized asset.

Christian Luyindama’s arrival will be a huge boost for Aston Villa.

Villa fans would certainly love to see him arrive at the club.

How strong that interest is and whether Aston Villa will make a move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
