All the latest transfer news and transfer rumours surrounding Aston Villa and Wolves ahead of the deadline.

Aston Villa and Wolves are now preparing for another weekend of Premier League action.

Unai Emery’s men got the week off from Carabao Cup action due to their Conference League involvement, while Wolves made easy work of Blackpool to progress to the third round. Preparations are now underway for the weekend’s action, but before that comes the end of the summer transfer window deadline, which is on Friday night.

With that in mind, we have rounded up all the latest transfer news and rumours surrounding Molineux and Villa Park.

Abde interest

Villa are said to be interested in Barcelona star Abde Ezzalzouli ahead of the deadline.

Abde, as he is known, has reportedly been made available by Barca as they look to free up wage space to register new signings. Sport claim Villa are one of the clubs interested in landing the versatile forward, who will reportedly cost around £17million.

Bayer Leverkusen are also said to be interested in a move for the pacey and skillful Morocco youth international. Villa have already spent significantly during this window, but £17million may be bargain they don’t want to miss.

Reed talks

Wolves are said to be pushing for a deal to land Fulham star Harrison Reed.

According to TalkSPORT, Wolves have identified Reed as a possible replacement for Matheus Nunes, who is headed to Manchester City. It’s claimed Wolves are in talks with Fulham as they look to find out if the London club are open to striking a deal, given they won’t have much time to find a replacement.

Reed is a key part of Fulham’s plans if the first three games are anything to go by, with the midfielder starting the first two Premier League games, coming off the bench in the third. Wolves will need to offer a significant fee, but they will, of course, be armed with the Nunes money.
