Of his 13 Premier League appearances, Villa won nine last season.

Nakamba arrived at Villa from Belgian club Club Brugge in the summer of 2019 and quickly settled into Dean Smith’s plans.

The Zimbabwe international has made 50 appearances in all competitions during his two seasons at Villa Park, making himself a fan favorite.

Villa would be reluctant to lose Nakamba, but Everton and Palace are ready to test their resolve by launching transfers for the midfielder before the transfer window closes at the end of August.
