Bertrand Traore, Morgan Sanson and Anwar El Ghazi are among those who could leave Villa Park if a good offer comes in, while midfielder Douglas Luiz has admirers across Europe.

Gerrard is keen to bring in a left-back to provide competition for Lucas Digne, as well as an athletic central midfielder.

There is also a lot of interest in young forward Cameron Archer, although Villa is not keen on loaning him at this point, at least not until after he’s been on the club’s pre-season tour of Australia.

Trezeguet joined Villa in the summer of 2019 as part of their spending wave that followed promotion under Dean Smith.

While he struggled to secure a regular spot in the starting eleven, the Egyptian nevertheless made significant contributions.

His goal against Leicester sealed Villa’s place in the 2020 Carabao Cup final, while his double against Crystal Palace later in the campaign fueled the form that kept Villa in the Premier League.
