Tottenham warned it could cost £60m to sign Ezri Konsa from Aston Villa
According to Football Insider (h/t Football.london), Tottenham have been warned that it could cost them £60m to sign Ezri Konsa. Former Aston Villa striker Gabriel Agbonlahor went ahead and fired a word to the likes of Spurs and Liverpool on the probable amount required to sign Ezri Kona from Villa.
Since joining the club from Brentford in 2019, Konsa has gone on to become a vital player for Dean Smith as they avoided relegation last season and started this season on a good note. His good form has not gone unnoticed with the 23-year-old said to be on the radar for England manager Gareth Southgate, with the European Championships this year.
Konsa cost Aston Villa £12m when he was signed from the Championship club but Agbonlahor believes that he is worth five times that amount now.
“I’ve heard that he’s a good lad, he’s very confident in his ability. Great signing from Dean Smith. Every signing’s been perfect. He came from Brentford, didn’t cost a huge amount of money and now he’s probably worth five times that amount.”
