And if today’s Daily Star is anything to go by, they may be bringing in players regardless of who owns the club.
Current owner Randy Lerner has already admitted that he wants to sell the club but transfer dealings are still well underway and it’s rumoured that Joleon Lescott is on the list.
The former Everton star has been a bit-part player at Manchester City this season and he’s set to be on the search for first team football next season as he reaches an important time in his career.
He’s unlikely to be offered a new deal anyway but may want to join a team that can offer him European football.
It’s not just defender Lescott that Aston Villa are targeting though with rumours also surfacing that they can attract players such as Romelu Lukaku and also a return for former fans’ favourite Gareth Barry.
Aston Villa fans. Can you really attract such key players when you don’t even know who is going to be in charge of the finances this summer? Let us know your thoughts below.
