Aston Villa: Source shares club’s summer plans

Aston Villa: Source shares club’s summer plans - Aston Villa

Aston Villa will spend big again this summer and are looking to land two wide forwards ahead of the 2021/22 season.

That’s according to a report from Football Insider, who have been informed by a Villa source that their key area to improve is in attack.

Wide additions Villa’s priority

Potential wide additions are being looked at, with two signings to play out on the flanks in Dean Smith’s 4-2-3-1 system the club’s priority.

Villa have spent over £88m during the current campaign, with five players joining in eight-figure deals.

Transfer Tavern take

This update is slightly different to a report from the reliable John Percy of The Telegraph.

He claimed earlier this month that the club will look to sign a winger along with a centre-forward to provide competition to club-record signing Ollie Watkins. Looking to bring in two wingers instead of one though, is a shrewd decision in our view.

The club have four senior wide men on the books currently in club captain Jack Grealish, Trezeguet, Bertrand Traore and Anwar El-Ghazi.

Adding two more of real quality could then allow Grealish to move to a central role behind Watkins, leaving the likes of Trezeguet, Traore and El-Ghazi needing to step up their game to become a regular next season.

Those three players combined have managed just 13 top flight goals this term, so a player who can muster up double digits by themselves would be a big improvement, while Trezeguet is also likely to be sidelined for considerable time through the injury he sustained against Liverpool.
