Aston Villa ‘interested’ in winger transfer after £15m bid ‘turned down’

Aston Villa is reportedly interested in Norwich City winger Jonathan Rowe ahead of the January transfer window.


It has been reported that Aston Villa is considering a January move for Norwich City winger Jonathan Rowe.

With 20 league games for the Canaries this season, the 20-year-old has impressed in the Championship, tallying 10 goals and dishing out one assist. His last two goals came in Saturday’s 2-2 draw in the East Anglia derby at Portman Road against Ipswich Town.

This season, Rowe has filled roles in attacking midfield as well as on the left and right. Having broken into Norwich’s first squad at the close of the 2021–2022 season, he also has Premier League experience.

The Sun claims that Villa is one of the clubs expressing interest in Rowe, who is attracting attention from the Premier League ahead of the January transfer window. The article also states that shortly before the summer transfer window closed, Norwich “turned down” a £15 million bid from Wolves.

Despite some financial concerns, Norwich is reportedly ready for proposals and “does not want to sell” the player in January. With just five points separating them from the play-off spots, David Wagner’s team is now in 10th position in the Championship table. As such, they are eager to hang onto him in order to maintain their push for promotion at the end of the season.

In order to improve their chances of qualifying for the Champions League, Unai Emery might be eager to enhance his team during the January transfer window. The winger alternatives Villa currently has are Emiliano Buendia, Nicolo Zaniolo, Moussa Diaby, Bertrand Traore, and Leon Bailey.

But Buendia is now out due to a chronic injury sustained in the preseason. With just two substitute appearances in the Premier League this season, Traore may be one of the players to move on during the winter transfer window.
