Our Aston Villa fans here in the Transfer Tavern really are looking for Steve Bruce to bring in some top players this summer as they aim for the Premier League.
The Villa fans, as well as many others here by the bar at the moment, want to see the club back in the top flight as soon as possible and so it’s up to Bruce and his men to make that happen.
Who he brings in, though, remains to be seen but we reckon a player that he really should go for in the summer comes from his old side, Hull – Harry Maguire.
Of course, the Tigers were relegated from the Premier League last season but Maguire really did excel and would surely get into a fair few sides in the top flight.
He would, however, surely fancy the opportunity to help Villa return to the Premier League – a selling point we think Bruce could use for a number of players.
Of course, it would be hard to persuade Maguire to spend at least a year away from the top division but all the tools are there at Villa now to make sure that past this season he’d be with them for a long time back up there.
Villa, at this point in their progression, need to prove their a top 20 side in waiting and signing Maguire would surely do that. They have the resources, club size and hierarchical structure to pull off such a move – now it’s time they did.
Thoughts, Villa fans? Let us know below!
