A final name to mention is Ollie Watkins. Villa sources dismiss tension between Watkins and Steven Gerrard and maintain they don't want to sell. Palace and Leeds monitoring. Key will be whether Watkins pushes for an exit. Villa calm about situation but no doubt one to watch.

Jacobs has added that there is no problem between Watkins and Villa manager Steven Gerrard. The Villans do not plan to sell the former Brentford star, but things could change if he himself pushes for a move away. The 26-year-old has been on the books of Villa since 2020 when he moved from Brentford.
Watkins has scored 25 goals and created 13 big chances in 74 appearances in the Premier League so far in his career. The striker started for Villa against Everton at Villa Park in the Premier League on Saturday and provided two assists.
