Defender Kehrer on Villa wanted list
Thilo Kehrer is reportedly a transfer target for Aston Villa and Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt. The 27-year-old arrived at the London club from Paris Saint-Germain in the summer of 2022.
The report emanates from Sky Sports Austria, who claim that Kehrer has caught the eye of Unai Emery. Aston Villa are on an unexpected title charge, and the Midlands board will be looking to give Emery funds to strengthen the squad.
Kehrer has fallen out of favour at West Ham and is currently out of David Moyes‘ first team plans. With Nayef Aguerd traveling to the African Cup of Nations next month, Kehrer may yet get a chance to play this season. However, it would be completely understandable if the player pushed for a move.
When he joined West Ham, Kehrer was a German international playing for PSG. It would be hard to blame him if he wished to swap a place on the West Ham bench for the chance at a title chase.
