January 10, 2017

According to the English media outlets, Arsenal and Manchester are among a number of clubs interested in signing highly-demanded Barnsley right-back James Bree.

The talented Englishman has also attracted the attention of other Premier League club, including Ma City, West Ham United, Tottenham Hotspur and Southampton, but it is actually Championship side Aston Villa who are believed to be ready to make the first move.

As the reports from Daily Mirror claim, the Midlands club are understood to make a £4m move for the talented defender.

The 19-year-old James Bree has made 17 appearances for the Tykes in the second tier, and has did enough to draw the interest of many Premier League sides due to his impressive performances.

The teenage starlet is versatile and capable of playing in midfield as well as at full-back, and could follow in the footsteps of Mason Holgate and John Stones in moving from Barnsley to the Premier League.

Both fellow defenders, they went to Everton, and John Stones in now at Manchester City after a shocking £47.5m transfer move while Holgate is breaking into Ronald Koeman’s first team at Everton.
