With Aston Villa's relegation to the Championship, there has been talk of players moving elsewhere and Amavi is a new feature in the Football Whispers top three.

He only joined the club in July last year, and spent most of the season on the sidelines after tearing his ACL in November, but is reportedly seen as an option by Jurgen Klopp to boost his defense. 

3. Mahmoud Dahoud (Borussia Monchengladbach) - 3.6
