Aston Villa may have to sell some of their key players this summer to avoid breaching Premier League profit and sustainability.

The recent points deduction for Everton has sent ripples of caution throughout the league, highlighting the importance of financial prudence.

Jacob Ramsey, a homegrown talent with a £50 million tag, caught Newcastle’s eye in January, and his sale could bolster Villa’s coffers significantly.

Meanwhile, Douglas Luiz and Boubacar Kamara remain on the radar of top clubs, though Kamara’s recent injury may stall any immediate moves.

Douglas Luiz has long been admired by Arsenal, according to the Daily Mail.

Last summer’s sales and high-profile acquisitions have put a strain on Villa’s finances, prompting Emery and Monchi to possibly sell before they can buy, in a bid to further strengthen the squad.
