Aston Villa told to pay €20 million to sign Isi Palazon

Aston Villa will reportedly have to pay €20 million to sign 28-year-old Rayo Vallecano winger Isi Palazon in the summer.

Unai Emery is a big admirer of Isi Palazon and wants to sign him in the summer. According to a report by Fichajes, Aston Villa will have to pay €20 million if they want to land the Rayo Vallecano winger at Villa Park ahead of the next season.

Isi Palazon has been in the form of his life in the ongoing season. His work on the field has not gone unnoticed, with a lot of clubs interested in acquiring him. However, Aston Villa are leading the race at this point in time as per the reports.

Rayo Vallecano have been doing wonders in the ongoing season. And a lot of credit goes to the 28-year-old winger, who has been exceptional on the right flank. Andoni Iraola’s team are currently seventh in the league, with 32 points out of 20 matches. They have a game in hand. And if they manage to get all three points, they will be fifth on the points table.

There is a realistic chance for Rayo Vallecano to finish in a European spot in the ongoing season. If they keep up the good, they can even end up in a Champions League spot. Their impressive run in the league is down to a few players who have taken their game to the next level in the ongoing campaign.

Isi Palazon is one of those players who has performed out of his skin. He has been a constant threat out wide for the opposition. And the defenders have found it difficult to stop him while he runs at them with the ball. Palazon has been at the receiving end of a lot of fouls and is the second-most fouled player in the league behind Vinicius Junior.

The 28-year-old joined Rayo in the winter of 2020 from Ponferradina. He has been doing wonders since joining them. But in the ongoing season, he has brought his A game to the table. The former Real Madrid academy ace has featured in over 100 matches for the Spanish club and has been involved in 34 goals.

In the ongoing season, he has played 22 matches and has nine goal contributions. The impact that he has had at the club of late has attracted a lot of interest. Unai Emery’s Aston Villa want to sign him in the summer. But, they will have to pay €20 million to bring him to Villa Park.

While the Spaniard’s market value is around €7 million, Rayo do not need to sell their superstar. As a result, Aston Villa will have to pay around €20 million to prize the Spanish winger away from the club. Given the financial resources that Premier League teams have, it should not be that big a problem.

Since the appointment of Unai Emery, things have taken a u-turn for Aston Villa. However, Emery wants to add a few players in the summer to take his team to another level. He has identified Palazon as an important target, and the Spanish winger’s arrival will increase their attacking threat while adding to the competition for a place in the starting XI.
