Aston Villa: Fans react to Helander price

Aston Villa: Fans react to Helander price - Aston Villa

Plenty of Aston Villa fans have been giving their thoughts on social media in regards to the club’s reported interest in Rangers defender Filip Helander.

Villa, along with Premier League rivals Leicester City, were linked with the centre-back over the weekend.

A fresh update from ESPN, cited by Birmingham Live has now emerged, with specific finances involved.

Should either Villa or Leicester firm up their interest, they’d have to stump up no less than £6m for the Sweden international.

Will Grealish stay at Villa this summer?





Helander’s Ibrox deal doesn’t expire until 2023. His current Transfermarkt valuation stands at just £1.8m, but Villa would have to pay over three times that figure to seal a deal for the Rangers man.

The 6 foot 3 defender has made 27 appearances under Steven Gerrard this season, scoring on three occasions.

How well do you know Villa’s transfer business on strikers? First up, how much did Darren Bent cost in 2011? *Fees from Transfermarkt*
