Bayern and Tottenham Locked in a Battle for Aston Villa Whizkid Jacob Ramsey

European giants Bayern Munich and Tottenham Hotspur have emerged as keen suitors for the talented Aston Villa midfielder, Jacob Ramsey.

Transfer Guru David Ornstein revealed that both clubs have expressed their admiration for the 21-year-old, with offers exceeding £50 million (€58 million) being considered by Villa as they aim to raise funds before the end of June to meet financial compliance.

Ramsey, who rose through the ranks of Villa’s youth academy, has been a standout performer in the Premier League since his breakthrough in the 2020/21 season.

Despite a foot injury hindering his start to the current campaign, the midfielder has proven pivotal for manager Unai Emery when fit.

Last season, Ramsey contributed to 13 goals in 35 top-flight appearances, showcasing his ability to make a significant impact on the pitch.

The interest from Tottenham comes amid manager Ange Postecoglou’s pursuit of an all-action midfielder capable of running at defenses and providing an alternative to James Maddison.

Chelsea’s Conor Gallagher had been identified as a potential fit, but negotiations with the Blues are proving challenging, prompting Spurs to explore alternatives, including Ramsey.

Renowned transfer expert Fabrizio Romano hinted at the possibility, stating that Tottenham could secure an “important midfielder” with the potential sale of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.

On the other hand, Bayern Munich’s interest stems from their ongoing search for a holding midfielder, a quest that intensified after the collapse of a deal for Joao Palhinha in the previous summer.

The departure of Ryan Gravenberch late in the transfer window further highlighted the Bavarian club’s need for midfield reinforcements.

Ramsey’s versatility and youth make him an attractive prospect for both clubs, adding an intriguing subplot to the January transfer saga.
