Aston Villa should move for this 22-year-old talent if they want to challenge next season

Our Aston Villa fans here in the Transfer Tavern really are eager to see their side sign some top players in the summer window.

For sure, the Championship is set to be as competitive as ever next season and Villa are going to be hopeful that they can compete with the likes of Middlesbrough, Leeds and Sheffield Wednesday amongst others for the promotion spots.

Certainly, though, they need more players to come in and help them with that cause and here in the Transfer Tavern we reckon they should take a punt on signing enigmatic Newcastle man Aleksandar Mitrovic.

First of all, Villa need another striker with only Jonathan Kodjia a firm source of goals and, then secondly, they need a forward that is going to buzz around and get Villa hassling teams.

Mitrovic, on his day then, would be the perfect fit for these requirements.

The Serbian, of course, has his detractions in the sense that he does not always perform consistently but when he does play well he is a real handful.

Newcastle, though, might feel that that isn’t enough for the top flight and so Villa, if they make a bid, might be able to get him.

Indeed, with Steve Bruce already getting a better tune out of a team that was under-performing prior to his arrival, the suggestion is he could work the same magic with Mitrovic and, if he did, Villa would be looking potent.

It is, of course, a risk, but it’s one that would pay-off hugely if things went to plan.

Thoughts, Villa fans? Let us know below!
