Fabrizio Romano declares that Aston Villa winger Trezeguet is close to leaving the club and joining Turkish side Istanbul Basaksehir until the summer on loan. The Turkish transfer window ends on Tuesday.
Trezeguet, 27, has only made one appearance for Villa in the 2021-22 season and while that’s largely due to injury – he’s back, just to warm up the bench under the new manager Steven Gerrard.
In the Africa Cup of Nations, his playing time was much more abundant, as Egypt reached the final – only to lose to Senegal on penalties. Liverpool’s Sadio Mane scored in the penalty shootout to win.
Since joining Villa nearly three years ago, Trezeguet has become a rather meager player – making just 64 appearances in total in all competitions. Now, with his contract set to expire in 2023, it looks like the beginning of the end is upon us.
Indeed, while Basaksehir – who is fifth in the SuperLig and boasts the likes of Nacer Chadli – has only signed him on loan, his long-term future is in doubt. Romano said it was a ‘done deal’ and the medical examination was completed.

Trezeguet leaving Villa is right. The signings of Leon Bailey, Bertrand Traore and Philippe Coutinho – twinning to Ollie Watkins have been widely used – saw Anwar El Ghazi jump ship in January, joining Everton.
His game time will be limited if he stays, making strange substitutions here and there. A return to Turkey, with Kasimpasa’s 43 goals in 71 games, will strengthen his confidence.
