Aston Villa want to sell their centre-back Bjorn Engels

According to the Daily Mail, Aston Villa are open to offers for their 2019 signing Bjorn Engels.

The Lions are busy preparing for their second season back in the Premier League. They have already hired the services of Matty Cash (from Nottingham Forest) and Ollie Watkins (from Brentford) so far.

However, it looks that English boss Dean Smith also want to offload a number of fringe players from Villa Park before the transfer window closes.

The Daily Mail report has mentioned seven players who could be sold by the club this summer. Along with Engels, the Villains would be open to selling Marvelous Nakamba, Mbwana Samatta, Lovre Kalinic, Frederic Guilbert, Scott Hogan and Orjan Nyland.

Engels had a mixed first season since arriving at Villa Park in the summer of 2019. He looked very promising at the beginning of the campaign and looked to partner well with Tyrone Mings.

However, he failed to maintain that good form and managed only 15 Premier League starts by the end of the season. The Belgian footballer also faced injury issues during his time in Aston.

It doesn’t look like the Villains are desperate to sell the named players, however, it is a good decision to remain open to offers for the 25-year-old. Bjorn cost them around £9 million (as per Sky Sports), and they would perhaps like to recoup that sort of money.

However, keeping him in Aston doesn’t look like a bad decision either. It won’t be easy for him to win back a starting spot, but we know that he has plenty of potential as he showed glimpses of his quality last campaign.
