Warriors midfielder Marvelous Nakamba has been listed among five players that Aston Villa is likely to sell to build its war chest for transfers in January.
British newspaper Birmingham Mail reports that despite a move failing to materialise in the just-ended summer transfer window, Nakamba who was signed for £11 million by Villa in 2019, is likely to be sold in the next. The publication reported yesterday:
There were reports linking the midfielder away from Villa Park over the course of the summer, with Everton and Crystal Palace interested in making moves for the Zimbabwean before the close of the window.

However, while a move didn’t materialise, Villa could look to sell Nakamba to fund other midfield targets in transfer windows to come, with Villa being linked to a whole host of players in Nakamba’s position over the past few months.
Other players that have been listed together with the Warriors star are centre-back Kortney Hause, who is said to have “fallen down (Dean) Smith’s pecking order,” right-back Frederick Guilbert from France, strikers Anwar El Ghazi from the Netherlands and Keinan Davis.
Meanwhile, Villa netted £100 million from the sale of Jack Grealish to Manchester City but used up £95 million after bringing in Emiliano Buendia, Ashley Young, Leon Bailey and Danny Ings.
