The Aston Villa fans in the Transfer Tavern are already dreading a long season ahead after their side’s poor start to the season.
Villa have taken just one point from their opening three league games in the Championship and already face an uphill task of sealing automatic promotion.
Steve Bruce’s men are seriously lacking quality in the middle of the park. They managed just 33% possession in their most recent game against Reading, to which they lost 1-0.
A number of players have been touted to be on Bruce’s radar, including Arsenal star Jack Wilshere.
It’s an ambitious move. Arsenal would no doubt want a permanent deal and probably demand a decent fee, but it’s one that represents opportunity for both parties.
Wilshere desperately needs to get his career back on track. The Englishman had seemingly left his injury problems behind after a successful loan spell at Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth. However, the 25-year-old suffered from a fractured leg in April and is only just approaching full fitness again.
As for Villa, the club are crying out for a ball carrier from midfield and someone with a proficiency in passing – the England international possesses both in abundance.
It could be the perfect match for the club and the player, though Wilshere may have severe doubts about following in John Terry’s footsteps and dropping down to the Championship.
Villa fans, we want to hear from you! Would you be happy with Jack Wilshere at your club? Let us know in the comments…
