Many Aston Villa fans have discussed a report claiming Dean Smith will be handed a transfer budget of £100m this summer.
The Midlands outfit narrowly escaped relegation in the 2019/2020 season, drawing with West Ham United on the final day of the season to ensure that they remained in England’s top flight.
Having spent a large amount on players last summer, Villa boss Smith will be once again looking to the transfer market to explore the potential of bringing in some new faces.
Signing in the likes of Wesley, Ezri Konsa, Tyrone Mings and Trezeguet, Smith spent £143million in total on new arrivals last term.
The Sunday Mirror via Birmingham Mail have already started to discuss potential summer arrivals and have put together a report over the weekend which claims Smith will be allocated £100m to bring in four players.
Birmingham Mail also go a little deeper into who Villa could potentially bring in this summer with Brentford winger Said Benrahma emerging as a possible target.
Responding to the £100m claim, Villa fans took to Twitter via @villareport to give their opinion on who should be signed if that amount becomes available. One fan suggested that they would be in a relegation battle again having received a bigger budget last term only to end up near the bottom three, whilst another suggested they were ‘doing a Fulham’ again – last season many likened their spending to that of the Cottagers in 18/19.
Quality over quantity needed , if true @AVFCOfficial ?? I’d spend it on 3 Quality players alone ……and build around Ming’s , Trez, Grealish , Davis!! And that’s how you build a team !!!

McNeil, Abraham, R Sessegnon,, Buendia. All would start for Targett, Hourihane, Samatta and Trez. Plus Cantwell (if Jack goes)
