Galatasaray’s Nicolo Zaniolo to try to England tomorrow for Aston Villa medical

Premier League side Aston Villa have sealed a move for Galatasaray’s Nicolo Zaniolo and the Italian will travel to England tomorrow.

Gianluca di Marzio has confirmed what has been reported elsewhere, stating that Zaniolo will join Villa this summer. He will travel to England tomorrow and then undergo a medical with the Birmingham-based club and reunite with Monchi, who signed him at Roma as well.

A move has been agreed between Gala and Aston Villa, with the English side set to initially land the Italian on a loan deal and will have the option to buy him permanently. Unai Emery’s side lost Emi Buendia to a serious ACL injury and Zaniolo will likely replace the Argentine. The total package of the move is €27 million and that includes the loan fee and the option to buy him permanently.

It has been reported previously that the medical will take place on Wednesday, with Di Marzio stating that the Italian will at least travel to England on Wednesday.
