Aston Villa fans on Twitter hit out at club’s rumoured pursuit of Gallagher

With no indication of their financial situation getting better any time soon, Aston Villa continue to explore the cheapest of options to try and improve their squad. 

And one player that fits the mould is Southampton striker Sam Gallagher, who is valued at £2.7m by Transfermarkt.

According to the Birmingham Mail, Steve Bruce is a long-term admirer of the 22-year-old and will look to bring him in as he attempts to reinforce the team’s attack.

Gallagher spent last season out on loan at Villa’s rivals Birmingham City where he scored six goals in 33 Championship appearances.

Gallagher’s ratio of a goal every five-and-half games, though, is hardly likely to get Villa supporters off their feet and understandably so.

Bruce is better off investing time into one of his current crop of youth strikers such as Rushian Hepburn-Murphy if a player with Gallagher’s goalscoring record is the best the club can do in this current transfer window.
