Lille midfielder Angel Gomes could miss their Europa Conference League first leg clash against Aston Villa on 9th April, according to a report by French news outlet L'Equipe.

The former Manchester United man, who is 23-years-old, has picked up a hamstring injury that is expected to be keep him out of action for a minimum of three weeks which is a big blow for the Ligue 1 side.

Gomes is a key player for the French outfit and his absence will be felt as they look to get past Aston Villa over two legs. However, there is hope that he will be fit and available for when they welcome Unai Emery's men to their place on 18th next month.

The London-born man made the move to Lille back in 2020 and hasn't looked back since. He has become one of their most prized assets.

He has made 106 appearances in all competitions for them to date, 37 of which have come this term, and he has chipped in with eight goals.

The ex-England youth international rose up through the academy ranks at Manchester United and was a regular for the Premier League giants at various youth levels in his early career.

Gomes then went on to play 10 times for the Red Devils' first-team before he was given the green light to head out the exit door on a permanent basis.

Aston Villa have matches to get through first against Wolves, Manchester City and Brentford before they play Lille.
