Many Aston Villa fans have reacted to a report by the Telegraph that claims a move for Callum Wilson could include Scott Hogan joining Bournemouth.
After suffering relegation with the Cherries, Wilson will seemingly be keen to find a route back into the Premier League.
Villa, who survived on the final day of the season thanks to a 1-1 draw with West Ham United, will look to make some improvements to their squad this summer and it is thought that boss Dean Smith is keen to add a striker.
Having seen the likes of Wesley, Mbwana Samatta and Keinan Davis all struggle to find consistent goalscoring form, Smith is now being linked with a move for Wilson.
The Telegraph report that a deal for 28-year-old could include Hogan, who scored seven goals in 17 games on loan with Birmingham City in the second half of last season, moving in the opposite direction.
Reacting to the report via Twitter account @villareport, Claret and Blue fans gave their opinion on the potential swap deal and it seems they are split. Whilst some are keen due to Wilson’s decent top flight record – he has netted 41 times in 126 Premier League matches – others think he could be a risk given his high wages.
Wilson is a risk for me. He’s injury prone and he’s only actually had one 10+ goal season. Josh King has actually outscored him most seasons and is better suited as a solo striker. He’s the one I’d be enquiring about.

Considering he is earning 100k+ a week I think we could do better

Definitely a ‘no brainer’. Hogan will never get a sniff at Villa. He’s Championship level. Wilson has a ton of PL experience and would be a tidy backup striker.

I’d take a swap deal

Straight swap seems excellent value!
