Aston Villa are hoping to sign striker Ollie Watkins to a new contract.
The 27-year-old has been an important player for the West Midlands side, and his long-term future should be secured soon.
Unai Emery, the club’s manager, has now announced that the club is looking to extend the player’s contract.
“I’m working on it.” “We’re in contact,” he remarked (via Express and Star).
Watkins has been Aston Villa’s top scorer for the last three seasons, and he will be essential to the club’s title ambitions this season.
Aston Villa have achieved European status for this season and will aim to do well in the competition. Watkins has been an invaluable member of their squad, and it remains to be seen whether the 27-year-old can help them win a trophy this season.
The striker just scored the game-winning goal against Chelsea for his team, and he will seek to build on that performance in the coming weeks. There is no doubt that the 27-year-old is a dependable Premier League striker who will be an important player for Aston Villa in the coming years.
The West Midlands club cannot afford to lose him anytime soon and must do all possible to keep him during his prime years.
It remains to be seen whether the two parties can reach an agreement and complete the extension as quickly as possible.
