Unai Emery pushing hard for Pau Torres


Pau Torres of Villarreal CF celebrates after scoring the team's first goal during the LaLiga Santander match between Sevilla FC and Villarreal CF at Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan on April 23, 2023 in Seville, Spain. 

Villa are increasingly confident they can pull off a swoop for Villarreal defender Pau Torres this summer.

Bayern Munich are also chasing the 26-year-old but it is Villa, according to multiple reports in Spain, who have so far made the strongest overtures to the player.

Unai Emery is a huge fan of Torres having previously worked with the player at Villarreal and has been leading the efforts to convince him of the long-term project at Villa Park.

The deal will become more attractive if Villa, already relatively well-stocked at centre-back, can negotiate a cut-price fee.

Torres has a release clause of around £55million in his contract but with only a year remaining on the deal, the expectation is he will be allowed to leave for little more than half that amount.
