In a recent report, Danish newspaper Ekstra Bladet claimed that Aston Villa are facing tough competition for Brondby IF playmaker Nicolai Vallys. It has been stated that the Villans will have to rival Wolfsburg, Manchester United, Real Betis, Olympique Marseille, Southampton and PSV Eindhoven in pursuit of the Danish attacker.
Vallys’ Impressive Run Of Form In Danish Football
Vallys has caught the eye with his performances as a key member of Brondby’s attack this season. The Denmark international has been involved in 14 matches for the Danish outfit during this campaign, finding the back of the net on seven occasions and earning two assists in the process across all competitions.
The 27-year-old has been a reliable performer for his current employers but is still waiting to prove his worth at the highest level.
His current deal at Brondby will run out in the summer of 2026. Therefore, Aston Villa will have to make a sizable offer if they want to win the race for Vallys next year.
Is Vallys The Right Choice For Aston Villa Boss Unai Emery?
Vallys is a good dribbler with the ball at his feet and can make a few driving runs with the ball on the offensive end of the pitch. He has got the vision to orchestrate some decent openings in the opponent’s half and can even shoot the ball with venom from long range.
The Danish sensation mainly functions in the number ten position as an attacking midfielder but can also fill in as a wide player on either flank if asked to do so by his manager.
Vallys would no doubt enhance the quality and depth of Aston Villa head coach Unai Emery’s match-day squad. He has what it takes to compete for a regular spot in the Villans’ first XI in the future.
However, Vallys has still not proven himself outside his homeland. Plus, he might struggle to cope with the physical side and high intensity of Premier League football. Therefore, Vallys won’t be the right choice for the West Midlands club to pursue in 2024. Emery would be better off recruiting someone with more experience in English football when the transfer reopens at the start of January.
