President wants more than £ 18million for reported target of Aston Villa and West Ham
Fenerbahce won’t even consider selling Aston Villa, with Newcastle United and Leicester City targeting Attila Szalai for a penny under £ 18million, President Ali Koc has said. Hurriyet.
If one of Europe’s most exciting young defenders wanted to make a name for himself at Euro 2020, he couldn’t have asked for a more difficult race.
So far Szalai has faced Cristiano Ronaldo, Diogo Jota, Karim Benzema, Antoine Griezmann and Kylian Mbappé.
So the fact that he not only survived but prosperous testifies not only to his abilities but also to his attitude.
The rock-solid 23-year-old has more than held his own as Hungary beat Portugal closely in their Group F opener last week., before restricting the world champion France to a draw in a leaping Budapest.

And, perhaps emboldened by Szalai’s outstanding performance in the so-called “Group of Death,” Fenerbahce is determined to get every penny out of a man who was already in high demand. before the tournament has started.
“For Attila Szalai, (offers) of less than 20 million euros are not even mentioned! Ali Koc insists.
Let him be true to his word… only man himself can confirm it.
In May, Blikk reported that Szalai would be tempted by a move to Leicester City.
The Foxes will play Europa League football next season and, to Brendan Rodgers, have a manager who can be credited with putting Raheem Sterling, Philippe Coutinho, Kieran Tierney, Youri Tielemans and more on the path to stardom.
Premier League rivals Aston Villa, Newcastle and West Ham United are also excited.
Szalai’s father believes the interest of a number of heavy hitters is a “huge tribute” to a defender who played in the Cypriot league with Apollon Limassol as recently as January.
