Report: Aston Villa and Al Nassr ready to step up interest in Diaby

According to Bild, Aston Villa and AL Nassr are ready to step up their interest in Bayer Leverkusen's Moussa Diaby.
A summer transfer looks increasingly likely for Bayer Leverkusen winger Moussa Diaby.

After having their opening bids rejected, both English side Aston Villa and Saudi Arabian outfit Al Nassr are apparently ready to put around €50 million on the table for Bayer Leverkusen winger Diaby.

That's according to Bild, who reports that Diaby is looking to take the next step in his career, with Aston Villa said to have the best chance of landing the Frenchman, as he prefers a move to the Premier League.

Bayer Leverkusen are said to have set a price tag of €60 million for Diaby, who is under contract until 2025.

Newcastle United have also been linked with a move for the French winger.
