Villa were ripped to shreds at Wembley, with the Gunners scoring four times without reply, and despite all the build-up the towering Belgian forward did little to impress his army of reported suitors.

As the Mail reports, it’s understood that the player has a buyout clause of around £32m in his contract. Such a fee would make the 24-year-old our second most expensive signing of all time, second only to Andy Carroll, and understandably that’s provoked a number of our supporters to air their concerns.
