According to Uruguayan press reports, specifically, from Républica, Premier League side Aston Villa have tabled an €18m bid for striker Diego Rolan of Bordeaux.
Newcastle United did have an offer of around €13m rejected for the player earlier this month, as the report suggests.
While Get French Football News has no confirmation of a bid being placed at the time of writing, the specific media outlet where this information is coming from has been one step ahead of everyone else on all things concerning Rolan this summer and should be trusted.
Bordeaux have set a price of €20m in order to let go of the player, a price that they are not willing to negotiate on. Will Aston Villa match that price? We await confirmation for the offer itself first of all, even if the Uruguayan media outlet is reliable.
Our colleagues at Sud Ouest have confirmed today that the player is on Aston Villa’s shortlist. More undoubtedly to follow.
