Aston Villa are interested in Cordoba’s Andres Martin, reports Cordopolis on Tuesday.
They’re not the only ones. Barcelona, Real Madrid, Sevilla and Rayo Vallecano are also said to be keen, the first three initially for their second teams. It’s only Sevilla out of those who are thought to have made a proposal for the 19 year old attacking player.
Last season he played 32 matches in Spain’s second tier and scored seven goals, whilst also contributing four assists. He played in a variety of attacking positions: Striker, and left and right wing.
Eintracht Frankfurt have also been keen, and Cordoba plan to raise a relatively large fee.
We’d not seen Aston Villa interested reported previously, so did some digging. Last week, ABC Sevilla covered interest from the newly promoted Premier League club.
Jesús García Pitarch was said to have visited Cordoba personally to watch the player.
That report also credited Borussia Dortmund with interest, so it’s clear this could be a big transfer battle.
