Aston Villa: Fans react to John Percy’s claim on Rodrigo Bentancur -Aston Villa Transfer Rumours

Aston Villa are hopeful of signing Juventus midfielder Rodrigo Bentancur before Monday’s transfer deadline.

That’s according to The Telegraph’s John Percy, and as to be expected, the update has had a number of Villa fans talking.

The Midlands club have been busy this month, finalising moves for Philippe Coutinho, Lucas Digne and Robin Olsen while also adding Kerr Smith to their academy ranks.

How would you rate Villa's transfer window?

Absolutely brilliant!

Steven Gerrard still wants a centre-back and a holding midfielder, though, with an approach made for Bentancur over the weekend.

Percy claimed on Tuesday that Villa were hopeful of striking an agreement with Juventus and may look to bring in a centre-back on loan over the coming days. The reliable reporter touted an £18m figure for Bentancur, with Luis Suarez providing Gerrard with a glowing review of his international teammate.
