English Premier League club Aston Villa have submitted an offer to sign Egypt and Kasimpasa winger, Mahmoud 'Trezeguet' Hassan, for the summer transfer window according to a report published by Mirror on Tuesday.

Trezeguet was one of the key players of Egypt's national team during their games in the current Africa Cup of Nations; creating most of the Pharaohs' dangerous attacks. The trickster winger scored a goal and provided an assist for another one, after participating in all of Egypt's games in the AFCON. Unfortunately, the team was eliminated from round of 16.

The 24-year-old's notable performance at the AFCON had convinced Villa's coach Dean Smith to make a move to sign the Kasimpasa's winger amid interest from rival league Watford, according to Mirror's report.

The report mentioned also that Trezeguet has been told he can leave Kasimpasa if the team received a suitable offer.

"The player is keen on noving to England. Trezeguet is eager to join a club where he will play regular first-team football," the report added.

Many teams have been watching the former Ahly player this past period such as Premier League's Everton, Inter Milan of Italy, and Turkish sides Fenerbahce and Galatasaray, as the Mirror's report stated.

Trezeguet, who joined Kasimpasa in July 2018 from Belgium's RSC Anderlecht, made 34 appearances in the Turkish league last season; scoring 9 goals.
