Aston Villa in talks to sell Aaron Ramsey

Aston Villa are in talks to sell youngster Aaron Ramsey to Premier League side and value the 20-year-old at £12 million.

Aston Villa are looking to sell Aaron Ramsey to Burnley in the current window, as per The Athletic. The Clarets are keen on the 20-year-old playmaker, with manager Vincent Kompany the driving force behind this chase.

Aston Villa have done tremendous business in this window leading up to the start of the Premier League season. Unai Emery is ready to take the Midlands club in a new direction and have a European adventure to look forward to.

The Basque manager had made it clear that he wanted astute signings, and the club has backed him in getting the best possible targets. Youri Tielemans signed on a free transfer, while a few eyebrows were raised when Pau Torres joined them amid interest from some big clubs.

The best business happened later as Moussa Diaby joined from Bayer Leverkusen. He, too, had tremendous interest from Champions League club and Saudi Arabia, as the winger decided to snub the latter and join Villa.

Now, the club would like to generate revenue from a few sales. They have players to sell for the right price and are already in talks with Burnley for Aaron Ramsey. The 20-year-old playmaker is the brother of first-team regular Jacob Ramsey and will likely leave the club.

Aston Villa currently values the midfielder at £12 million. It may seem excessive but in line with similar deals conducted during this window. Manchester City sold James Trafford to Burnley in a massive deal while gaining around £17 million from Ajax for Carlos Borges.

Villa wants similar money for their 20-year-old playmaker, who had a good season in the Championship with Middlesbrough. Burnley have seen enough of the star in the making during last season to convince themselves he would improve their setup. They may not stop here, as other players like Albert Sambi Lokonga also remains linked.

Talks between Aston Villa and Burnley are well advanced for the 20-year-old, as a resolution could arrive soon. The Clarets have been very busy recruiting upon their return to the Premier League. They have made six permanent signings in this window and will hope Ramsey is the seventh.
