Aston Villa defender Tyrone Mings has reportedly emerged as a surprise transfer target for Everton and Manchester United.
While the England international is regarded as a vital player at Villa Park, the 27-year-old centre-back would be made available should his team suffer relegation from the English top-tier and with the three gameweeks left before the season ends it seems likely that Dean Smith’s side could return to Championship for the next campaign.
According to The Mirror, that has resulted in Everton and Man Utd identifying the left-sided centre-back as a possible signing.
Although Ole Gunnar Solskajer’s side are currently well-stocked for options at the backline, Mings could act as a replacement for Phil Jones, who is believed to depart from the club this summer.
Meanwhile, the Merseyside Blues have long been after a left-sided centre-back who can deputise at full-back, seemingly making Mings an ideal addition to their team.
Aston Villa would likely demand a fee in the region of £25m for Mings, a similar price to what was paid for the player before the start of the 2019/20 season.
Aston Villa’s another star Jack Grealish has been also rumoured with a switch Manchester United as Ole Gunnar Solskajer plans to pair him with Bruno Fernandes in the heart of the midfield area.
