Fiorentina want €20m for Super Eagles-eligible defender Michael Kayode

Fiorentina want €20m for Super Eagles-eligible defender Michael Kayode

English Premier League side Aston Villa have made a bid of €15m plus add-ons to Italian Serie A side Fiorentina for Super Eagles-eligible defender Michael Kayode.

According to Football Italia, Villa sporting director Monchi has presented the first offer to Fiorentina for Kayode but the Italians have valued the teenager a little more and are willing to listen to offers in the region of €20m plus add-ons.

The 19-year-old right-back joined the Viola from Gozzano back in July 2021 and spent two years in their Primavera squad before being promoted to Vincenzo Italiano’s first team last summer, giving him the chance to show his abilities in Serie A.

Kayode proved his potential for Fiorentina in his debut season in the topflight, scoring once and providing four assists across 37 matches, seeing 2906 minutes of action. Recent reports suggested that Tottenham had been keeping a close eye on the teenager across the season.

Monchi is a fan of Kayode and believes he’d be a strong addition to Unai Emery’s squad ahead of the 2024/25 season. The Villans are expected to return with a new proposal in the near future.

Villa will be hoping that the Borgomanero-born defender will be able to replicate the form and consistency Destiny Udogie delivered for Tottenham Hotspur last season.
