Aston Villa: Alex Moreno edges closer to sealing Villans move

Aston Villa: Alex Moreno edges closer to sealing Villans move - Aston Villa News

Aston Villa are ‘getting closer’ to completing the signing of Real Betis left-back Alex Moreno, according to a key update from reliable journalist John Percy.

The Lowdown: Moreno on Villa’s radar

Villa have been linked with a number of names to improve the squad, including Vedat Muriqi and Weston McKennie, but Moreno is one of those who seems to be a genuine target.

Recent reports have suggested that the 29-year-old could easily become a Villa player in the January transfer window, coming in as competition for Lucas Digne.

Now, a fresh update suggests that the transfer is closer than ever.

The Latest: Move edging closer

Writing on Twitter, The Telegraph‘s Percy revealed that Villa’s pursuit of Moreno has gathered further momentum:

“#avfc to continue talks with Real Betis over £12m deal for left-back Alex Moreno. Getting closer. Unai Emery also targeting a new winger as a priority this month.”

The Verdict: Shrewd piece of business

This is exactly the type of signing Villa need to make this month – someone with proven experience at a high level and who can enhance Emery’s squad depth.

Moreno has averaged 2.1 clearances and 1.8 tackles per game in La Liga this season, as well as registering three assists.

It now feels as though it is a matter of time until the Spaniard is a Villa player, in what is hopefully just one of several signings made in the coming weeks.
