Aston Villa: Spanish based striker emerges as potential summer arrival - Aston Villa Transfer Rumours

A report from Spanish daily Marca has claimed that Aston Villa are showing interest in Mallorca forward Ante Budimir.

Villa boss Dean Smith has done well over the summer transfer window to bolster his attacking options with the signings of Ollie Watkins from Brentford and Bertrand Traore from Olympique Lyonnais.

Having fought off relegation last term, the Claret and Blue side will be hoping to move away from the bottom three this year and an opening day win over Sheffield United has seen them get off to a good start.

With the transfer window still open, Mbwana Samatta has been linked with a move away with reports claiming he is set to move to Fenerbahce.

With Samatta’s pending exit, Budimir has now been linked with a move to Villa Park with Marca claiming he is also attracting interest from Sheffield United.

The Croatian striker, who is valued at £13.5m, found the back of the net 13 times in La Liga last season but was unable to prevent Mallorca being relegated.

Reacting to the report, Villa fans took to @villareport to share their opinion. The majority don’t seem too keen, with one pointing towards his below par stats on video game FIFA as a reason not to sign him.
