Aston Villa fans will be loving what they’re seeing in the Championship as their side have won their last four league games, which has brought their play-off dreams to life.
However, the Villans still have a long way to go with Bristol City in a promising position to claim sixth place with two games in hand over Dean Smith’s side, but one thing that is certain is that the players will give it their best shot.
Much to the delight of the supporters, Aston Villa recently received a boost in their pursuit of a target, as according to Birmingham Live, Neal Maupay has refused to rule out leaving Brentford.
“Yeah, I think I’m good enough to play against those kinds of players. I work hard every day in training, try to improve every day. So we will see.”
Indeed, promotion to the top-flight via the play-offs may just put Aston Villa in a promising position to sign the Frenchman, so here are the potential consequences of signing him…
DEAN SMITH SECURES TAMMY ABRAHAM REPLACEMENT
Tammy Abraham has proved to be one of the signings of the summer for Aston Villa as he’s played a monumental part in their push for a play-off spot, with 21 goals to his name up until this point.
However, the Englishman reportedly (as per Sky Sports) still wants a future at Chelsea once his Aston Villa loan deal expires in the summer transfer window.
Therefore, Smith can secure himself a replacement for Abraham in the form of Maupay as the 22-year-old has been prolific this season and he has all the ingredients to become a future star.
NASSEF SAWIRIS AND WES EDENS SPLASH THE CASH
Many Aston Villa fans will be hoping that they get to witness the club’s mega-rich owners, Nassef Sawiris and Wes Edens, in action in the summer transfer window with a number of improvements to be had.
Of course, Maupay won’t come cheap as one of the deadliest strikers in the Championship and Sky Sports reported back in January that it would take offers in excess of £20 million to sign him, so Edens and Sawiris will have to get their wallets out if Villa are to have any chance of securing his services.
Aston Villa fans, do you think Maupay is good enough to fill the Abraham void? Join the discussion by commenting down below…
