Liverpool compete with Tottenham for Ezri Konsa

Tue 16 February 2021 | 19:59

Two rivals in the Premier League are monitoring Aston Villa's central defender.

Both

Liverpool

and

Tottenham

are reportedly interested in

Aston Villa

central defender

Ezri Konsa

.

He is having a great season at Villa Park while trying to qualify for Europe on

Dean Smith

's side.

Villa is currently eighth in the table and have played at least one game in hand on many of the teams around them.

Smith's man have been quite strong defensively, conceding just 22 goals in 22 games.

Manchester City

is the only club in the

Premier League

whose backline has been beached less often.

Villa have also kept 12 clean sheets, the second after

Pep Guardiola

's team.

Konsa has made a considerable contribution to his team's success, and his efforts have not gone unnoticed.

Liverpool

and

Tottenham

are reportedly monitoring the former

Brentford

stopper.

Villa paid just £12 million to bring the defender to the West Midlands in 2019, but his value has increased since then.

Konsa has a contract with Villa until 2023 and the club hopes to extend his contract.

However, given that both Liverpool and Tottenham both maintain the situation, Knesa could receive other offers.

Meanwhile, the 23-year-old could soon face a decision at the international level, with the London-born center-back eligible to represent no fewer than four different nations.

Konsa has played for England under-20 and under-21 teams but is also qualified for DR Congo, Angola and Portugal.

Konsa has not yet played at the adult level for his country of birth, and to get a place in the England squad for the European Championships in the summer, he is a foreigner.

Aston Villa returns to Premier League action against 

Leicester 

on Sunday afternoon before a trip to 

Leeds

 in their final February fixture.
