We discussed Italian reports on Thursday that Aston Villa had offered €10 million plus bonuses of €2 million for Cyril Ngonge of Hellas Verona; nevertheless, it was mentioned that Ngonge preferred to remain in Italy.


The forward is reportedly attracting interest from Fiorentina as well, although they may need to move quickly if they want to sign him this month.


Many clubs have expressed interest in the 23-year-old, according to Quotidiano, with Aston Villa reportedly showing the greatest interest.


La Viola, who have developed a solid rapport with both their Serie A counterpart and the player’s entourage, is someone the Villans need to be cautious of.


Daniele Pradè, the sporting director, and Joe Barone, the CEO of Fiorentina, are simultaneously keeping an eye out for another attacker this month. They might strengthen their offence with the Belgian and another player.


Aston Villa’s interest is mentioned by TuttoMercatoWeb in their explanation of how the two Italian teams made direct contact for Ngonge on Wednesday.


Fiorentina’s enthusiasm has reportedly been dampened by reports that Hellas Verona is seeking “no less than €15m” in exchange for parting ways with the player.


Unai Emery’s team is reportedly tracking the Belgian, who has managed five goals and two assists from 19 games this season, according to journalist Marco Bucciantini.


“It is no coincidence that Aston Villa, a striker who also came from Belgium’s young team, follows Ngonge. As reported by Fiorentina News, he said on Radio Bruno, “In Serie A, he could easily explode, unless he has already done so.”


Bucciantini’s further remarks, in which he outlines how Aston Villa might recruit Ngonge, have been passed forward by Fiorentina experts Labaro Viola, according to another source.


“In actuality, he is going to Aston Villa, who are currently second in the Premier League, if he does not come to Florence. “He could definitely explode in the hands of [Fiorentina manager Vincenzo] Italiano,” Buccanini said.
