Aston Villa

Aston Villa must try to sign this important Newcastle star ahead of 2017/18

Our Aston Villa fans here in the Transfer Tavern really would like to see their side go for it in the transfer market this summer.

Indeed, the window opens tomorrow and many Villans want to see Steve Bruce and Dr. Tony Xia throw some serious money about.

Of course, they want their club to spend wisely, too, but the men from Villa Park really do have a bigger pull than most sides about – even with them being in the Championship – and so they should go for the ambitious signings.

Indeed, we reckon that Dwight Gayle should be a target this summer with the striker enjoying a fine season in the Championship last season.

Of course, many Villans will be thinking there is next to no chance that Gayle will be let go by Newcastle after his fine year but it is up for debate as to whether he is good enough to score regularly in the Premier League.

Indeed, he never really did so for Crystal Palace in the top flight and so there is a real case to suggest that the Magpies might just decide to cash in.

If they do, then, Villa should look to pounce with them being one of the sides rich enough to bring him in and also good enough to afford him the platform on which to score plenty of goals.

Of course, it needs the Magpies to decide to get rid but if Villa can make a serious case that he would be better suited off with their club, they really should try and make this move stick.

Thoughts, Villa fans? Let us know below!
