Aston Villa goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini could be leaving the club in January – but fans on Twitter think he should be given more time.

The promising 21-year-old stopper has been linked with a host of clubs, including Italian giants Inter Milan, and Villa boss Steve Bruce is reportedly prepared to let him leave the club next month.

Gazzetta dello Sport claim Inter are looking at a loan-to-buy offer for the Aston Villa man, and the Serie A club are reportedly set to begin talks over a move very soon.

Gollini has made 20 appearances in all competitions this season, keeping six clean sheets, but was dropped to the bench for their last clash with QPR on December 18.

His form this season since joining from Hellas Verona has been criticised in the media, but Aston Villa fans seem less than impressed that Gollini could be leaving the club so soon after his arrival.

Here are some of their messages on Twitter:

Gollini, a signing made by Bruce’s predecessor Roberto Di Matteo, has clearly not done enough to impress the former Hull and Sunderland boss.

He has four years remaining on his contract at Villa Park, but amid the latest reports from Italy, it seems unlikely that he will be seeing out his current deal.
