Aston Villa: Fans discuss Mbwana Samatta’s future after £28m striker arrival - Aston Villa Transfer Rumours

Many Aston Villa fans have given their opinion on the future of Mbwana Samatta after the arrival of Ollie Watkins at Villa Park.

27-year-old striker Samatta joined the Villans for £9.45m in January to bolster Dean Smith’s attacking options following an injury to Brazilian Wesley.

The Tanzanian goalscorer struggled however to make an impact in the Premier League, netting just one goal in his 14 appearances.

Samatta did make an impression in the Carabao Cup final though, bagging Villa’s only goal in a 2-1 defeat to Manchester City.

With the new season upon us, Villa boss Smith has added the services of Watkins, signing the striker from Championship side Brentford in a £28m deal.

A scorer of 26 goals in the Championship in 2019/20, Watkins will be expected to lead the line for the Midlands outfit next term and that has led to Samatta’s future to be discussed.

The Birmingham Mail asked Villa fans to give their verdict on Samatta’s future in a post on Twitter and it seems that they are divided. Some feel he should be kept on for now to provide competition and ensure he gets a fair crack of the whip – indeed this is a player who bagged 76 goals in 191 appearances at Genk.

However, others believe he should be moved on now that they have Watkins, Wesley and Keinan Davis in the squad, suggesting he isn’t good enough as proven by his meagre tally for the West Midlands club last term.
