Aston Villa linked with Villarreal winger Yeremy Pino
The upcoming transfer window is set to witness a lot of quality wingers switching clubs.
As per Spanish media, Aston Villa are linked with Villarreal winger Yeremy Pino.
The 20-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
Pino has been at Villarreal since 2017 when he joined from Las Palmas. His contract is set to expire at the end of the 2026/27 campaign.
In 14 appearances this season, Pino has managed to score one goal and contributed with one assist.
The 20-year-old has been touted as one of the brightest young prospects in Spain. Pino has also left his mark at the international stage after netting one goal in six senior appearances for the Spain national team.
His performances have seen him become the target of many European clubs including Aston Villa.
Unai Emery wants to sign a new winger and Yeremy Pino is one of the names at the top of his wishlist. Emery is a known admirer of the player and is reportedly keen on the idea of bringing him this winter.
Aston Villa are in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.
The former Las Palmas man will add a new dimension to Aston Villa’s attack.
According to the report, “Unai Emery’s sudden departure from Villarreal to Aston Villa has shaken things up on the East coast of Spain. The Basque manager takes charge of a talented squad but also increased spending power and some are suggesting that he may want to use it on players from his former club. Surveying the Villarreal squad, one of the standout assets would be Yeremy Pino. The young attacker has already been capped for Spain and is one of the most promising talents in the Spanish game. It is no surprise then that he has been mentioned in conjunction with Villa. Speaking to Caught Offside in his column however, transfer guru Fabrizio Romano calmed the fears of Villarreal fans. At just 20 years of age, Pino would likely command a fee in excess of €50m. The Yellow Submarine may well be open to a sale.”
