The Verdict: Alvarez would be a great addition to Aston Villa

The Argentina international would be a real coup should Dean Smith’s attempts to bring him to Villa Park succeed – his compatriot and seasoned goalscorer Gonzalo Higuain revealed his ‘love‘ for Alvarez back in March, praising him as a ‘huge‘ player with a ‘lot of potential.’

Enjoying a dazzling 2020/21 campaign, the tricky wide-man notched an impressive 11 goal contributions from 20 appearances, with four goals and seven assists [Transfermarkt].

Already boasting an array of forward talent, the potential that Alvarez could team up with the likes of Ollie Watkins, Jack Grealish, Emiliano Buendia and Bertrand Traore is a mouth-watering prospect for the Villa support.

Capable of driving past players with ease, Alvarez has averaged 1.7 dribbles per 90 minutes this year [WhoScored]. Building the makings of a side that could push for continental football, securing his signature should be a priority for Aston Villa as they approach pre-season.
