Aston Villa: Fans react to Dean Smith’s comments on Wesley

Aston Villa: Fans react to Dean Smith’s comments on Wesley - Aston Villa News

Many Aston Villa fans are reacting to the latest comments from manager Dean Smith on striker Wesley and possible plans to strengthen the attack in January.

According to journalist Ashley Preece, Smith was asked about the possibility of acquiring a striker in the January transfer window. He said: “It’s something that’s in the back of our minds. We need to see where Wesley is in January.”

The cruciate ligament rupture that Wesley suffered against Burnley has seen the Brazilian miss at least 40 games (366 days) (Transfermarkt). The club are hopeful he will return in 2021 but a lot of pressure has been added on Ollie Watkins. Fellow striker Keinan Davis has also been injured. This leaves Watkins as the only recognised striker currently available at the club.

Therefore you can see why Villa are possibly going to strengthen this position in the summer dependent on Wesley’s injury. If Watkins gets an injury soon, then Dean Smith will have to use someone from a different position up top and this is not what you want to do in the Premier League.

Here is what Aston Villa fans had to say following these comments:
