Many Aston Villa fans have been left buzzing as a transfer update emerged on Axel Witsel.
As per Tuttosport, AVFC as well as Roma are eyeing up a potential move for the Borussia Dortmund central midfield player before the summer window ends, and he would cost them a fee in the region of €5m (£4.3m).
Should Aston Villa sign Witsel?
Witsel is a player with a lot of experience of playing at the highest level, having played in the UEFA Champions League with four different clubs as well as racking up no fewer than 114 senior caps for Belgium, scoring ten goals (Transfermarkt).
Primarily a defensive midfielder, he would add some much-needed depth in that area for Dean Smith’s team, given that they only have Douglas Luiz and Marvelous Nakamba as natural CDM’s in their current squad at the moment (Transfermarkt).
Aston Villa fans on Witsel transfer update
These AVFC supporters buzzed as the transfer update on Witsel was shared on Twitter:
“Wouldn’t say no to him! He’s vastly experienced and still in Belgium squad.”
“Get him that’s the deal we’ve been waiting for”
“He’s a bit old but a quality player who can play in defence as well. Would be a good signing if true. We can’t have double standards with Smith. If he lies with injuries he can surely do it for transfers”
“I would say exactly what we need tbh”
“Get both McKennie and Witsel and we are done”
