Aston Villa are reportedly interested in signing Fulham defender Tosin Adarabioyo, according to Completesports.com.
The Lowdown: Romano’s transfer claim
Adarabioyo made the move to Craven Cottage last October for just under £1.5m. He made 34 appearances in all competitions under Scott Parker but couldn’t help the Cottagers prevent an immediate return to the second tier.
Reliable transfer expert Fabrizio Romano shared some news on the centre-back earlier this week. He suggested Adarabioyo could leave the club this summer and has a £10m buy-out clause in his current contract.
The Latest: Villa aren’t the only side keen
Completesports.com shared a transfer update on the defender on Wednesday evening.
They suggested that Villa, along with Newcastle United, Norwich City, Southampton and West Ham United are all interested in the player who Pep Guardiola described as an ‘exceptional person’ earlier this year.
How many signings do Villa need this summer?
The Verdict: A smart option?
Bringing in Adarabioyo for £10m could be a shrewd piece of business by sporting director Johan Lange.
One injury to Ezri Konsa, Tyrone Mings or Kortney Hause may leave Dean Smith sweating, so bringing in a new centre-back could be handy.
Adarabioyo has a full season of Premier League experience under his belt, and at the age of 23, you’d expect he can still improve even further into a solid top-flight defender.
