The Lowdown: Ings and Watkins crucial
Ings has actually been linked with a move away from the club this month, with Villa turning down a loan offer from top-flight rivals Everton. It is believed that NSWE will only consider permanent offers for the 30-year-old, and it seems as if they are working on an attacking addition of their own.
The Latest: New forward alongside Moreno?
Football Insider‘s Wayne Veysey shared a transfer update on Sunday morning, revealing that Villa are close to a breakthrough in talks to sign full-back Alex Moreno.
Villa are submitting a new bid for the Real Betis defender, while Veysey added that the club ‘are also confident of completing a forward signing soon’.
How many signings do Villa need this month?
The Verdict: Good news for Villa
Emery has been chasing a new A-list forward ever since taking over in the Midlands, so it is positive to hear that one could be about to arrive at Villa Park.
One of those could end up moving to Villa or it could be someone else, and it will be interesting to see where that leaves Ings going forward, should an attacker arrive in the coming weeks.
