Aston Villa fans here in the Tavern will accept nothing less than promotion in the next campaign. Although, the financial troubles they currently face could have a negative impact on their potential summer spending.
Villa are still yet to get over the disappointment of their Championship play-off final defeat to Fulham. Indeed, losing at Wembley has caused for major concern, with financial troubles and star men being linked with potential exits.
Jack Grealish established himself as Aston Villa’s standout performer last season and played a huge part in their push for promotion. Although, having failed to secure promotion, a number of Premier League clubs are now all fighting for his signature this summer, with an exit looking extremely likely.
So without further ado, Aston Villa need to consider these TWO cheap stars as Jack Grealish’s potential replacement…
Bradley Dack had a superb debut season with Blackburn Rovers where he helped them achieve promotion back to the Championship. He was the standout performer throughout the campaign, bagging himself 18 goals and providing eight assists.
He would certainly be cheaper than Jack Grealish and produced better stats than the Englishman in League One last season, so Villa may potentially get themselves an upgrade this summer.
Operating as an attacking midfielder, the 24-year-old likes to get forward into the box to make a nuisance of himself and has an incredible eye for goal, with his passing being of the highest order as well.
Luke Freeman was one of Queens Park Rangers’ standout performers last season in a rather disappointing campaign for his current club.
The attacking midfielder is a constant threat and managed to notch five goals in the last campaign, as well as assisting 12 times. And, with him possibly being available for a very small price, Villa shouldn’t waste any time in bringing the 26-year-old to Villa Park this summer.
Shockingly, many of our local residents are even going as far as saying that he could be the best signing of the summer if he makes the move.
