Aston Villa journalist Luke Hatfield believes that the club are unlikely to secure the signing of Todd Cantwell from Norwich City this summer, having already signed Emiliano Buendia from the Canaries.
Villa kicked off an aggressive summer of recruitment by bringing the Argentine playmaker in at the beginning of the transfer window, and have followed it up with a swoop for Danny Ings.
Villa have been touted as a potential suitor for Cantwell too, with Jack Grealish seemingly on the verge of making a move to Manchester City.
Would Grealish be a good signing for Manchester City?
He is set to leave for a fee of around £100m, and he will need replacing, with the Norwich winger seen as a potential target.
Cantwell made 33 appearances in the Championship last season and scored six goals, while also laying on seven assists.
But Hatfield thinks that a deal to secure his signature will be remarkably difficult for Villa to complete, as they have already raided the Carrow Road club once this summer.
Cantwell has a contract until 2022 with the newly-promoted club, and is valued at £19.8m by Transfermarkt.
Hatfield said: “Let’s not forget, they already went for Buendia from Norwich. I’m not saying it’s impossible that you’d go and sign two players from a single team over a window, but it’s not very common.”
