Aston Villa, Tottenham vying for Yan Couto

Tottenham Hotspur and Aston Villa are reportedly keen on signing 22-year-old Manchester City defender Yan Couto this summer.

According to a report from Fichajes, Aston Villa and Tottenham Hotspur are currently plotting a raid on Premier League champions Manchester City for the 22-year-old highly-rated full-back Yan Couto.

The Brazilian defender was on loan at Spanish club Girona last season, and he had an impressive campaign with them. However, the opportunity to join a Premier League club could be exciting for him.

Aston Villa could use an upgrade on Matty Cash next season, and Couto would be a solid acquisition for them. Apart from his qualities as a defender, he can be quite effective going forward as well.

Yan Couto might fancy Premier League move

The Brazilian defender will wants to compete at a high level consistently, and Aston Villa could provide him with that platform. The West Midlands club have secured qualification to the UEFA Champions League as well.

Meanwhile, Tottenham already have a quality right-back in Pedro orro and it remains to be seen whether they are ready to hand the Manchester City player regular game time. Emerson Royal has been linked with a move away from the club this summer, with AC Milan keen on signing him.

It will be interesting to see if Tottenham decide to make a move for Couto as a replacement for his compatriot. The Manchester City defender will want to play regularly at this stage of his career, and it remains to be seen if he is ready to join the Premier League club as a backup option.

Meanwhile, Manchester City will not be able to accommodate him in their starting lineup, and they will probably look to sell him this summer for the right price. It will be interesting to see if Aston Villa or Spurs can agree on a deal with the Premier League champions.

The Brazilian defender has proven himself in La Liga, and he is good enough for the Premier League as well. Whoever ends up signing him will have a tremendous prospect on their hands.
