A real difference-maker – Here’s why Aston Villa have struck gold by signing this promising defender for £12m

Aston Villa Opinion: Why is Konsa an important signing for Villans?

According to a report from BBC, Aston Villa have signed Brentford defender Ezri Konsa in a £12m deal.

Having already captured Tyrone Mings, Dean Smith has certainly made a strong statement ahead of the new Premier League season.

What sort of a player is Konsa?

Konsa was brought into the spotlight in recent times when he represented the Three Lions in the U21 Euro competition. Prior to that, he was more famous as a Charlton Atheltic player when he broke into the main team at 18 and won the clubs’ Young Player Award in his debut campaign.

 He played around 80 matches before he sought an exit to Brentford last summer and became a regular for the side.

At the international level, Konsa was part of the Three Lions team that won the Toulon tournament in 2018.

How important is signing Konsa?

The Villans are currently running afoul in the transfer window and are doing better than they ever have.

Having already secured Kortney Hause’s signing from Wolves, Smith needed to find a partner as competitive as Mings.

Meanwhile, Konsa, a promising U21 star, can help the Villans reinforce their defence at all costs.

In the 2018/19 campaign, Konsa held a pass success percentage of 87 and an average of 3.6 clearances, which indicates how good he is.

Meanwhile, there are areas that Konsa needs to work on but moving to a club like Villa is certainly one of the biggest stepping stones in his career. 

Final Verdict

As of now, the Lions are making their intentions clear with the flurry of signings they have already made and with Konsa’ s acquisition, Smith and his men are inclined to cause problems  in England’s top-tier next season
