The Aston Villa fans in the Transfer Tavern have realised that their Premier League return is only likely should the Villans succeed through the play-offs.
It’s been a real rollercoaster season for Villa this season and that continues to be the case with Villa facing the very likely possibility that their only chance of reaching the top flight once again would be to win the play-offs. That, by no means, is an easy task and Villa will have to be at the top of their game if they’re to win.
With growing as a club the one focus on their minds, a big transfer window whether they get promoted or not is massively needed and a player our punters would love to see arrive at Villa Park is highly-rated Liverpool star Ben Woodburn. The 18-year-old is valued at £4.50 million on Transfermarkt and should Villa pull off such an ambitious move for the youngster, that transfer alone could turn them into a much better and more threatening side to play against.
Although no one is doubting his ability, first-team opportunities have been limited due to the amazing performances from Liverpool’s attackers. Therefore our punters think it makes perfect sense for Aston Villa to try and prize Woodburn away from Anfield, even on a loan deal.
Woodburn could be deployed on either wing or through the middle. The versatility of the youngster is extremely desirable and with Aston Villa hoping for more of a cutting edge next season, Woodburn could prove to be the player capable of doing so.
