Many Aston Villa fans are reacting to the latest news which reports that the club are interested in signing Sander Berge.
The midfielder is only 23 years-old and before his current injury, he was one of the first names on the team sheet for the Blades. The stats show he is a decent defensive midfielder as he managed 1.2 tackles and 1.4 clearances a game this season (WhoScored). One Villa fan called the £16.20m-valued man a ‘class player’.
His age and top flight experience suggest that he can grow into a solid Premier League asset for many seasons to come at Villa. It seems like the club are looking for squad depth and could be without Ross Barkley next season when his loan expires.
With the signing of Berge, they could perhaps bring John McGinn a bit higher up the pitch and utilise their new signing Morgan Sanson alongside the Blades midfielder, and this would see them not feel the absence of Barkley next season.
Here is how Villa fans reacted to the news:
“Dub, great player”
“Good. Class player. Exactly what we should be looking to add to the squad #avfc“
“YES YES YES GET HIM RIGHT NOW”
“Been saying for ages I’d love him”
“Happy with that. Great cover for Douglas Luiz”
“23 years old. Fits the age and profile that Purslow has spoken about. It’s so exciting being a fan right now knowing we’re heading in the right direction.”
