The Aston Villa fans who are gathered at the bar in The Transfer Tavern this evening are discussing reports linking them with a move for a former Liverpool midfielder.
According to reports on sporx.com the recently relegated Premier League side are considering making an offer for Raul Meireles this summer.
Meireles has been on the books of Turkish side Fenerbahce since 2012 and with his contract with the side due to expire this summer, it appears that Villa are eyeing him as experienced head to add to their ranks for an instant Premier League return next season.
The Portuguese midfielder is no stranger to the English game, having previously spent a season with both Liverpool and Chelsea respectively.
Meireles is a born winner lifting trophies at Porto, Chelsea which included a Champions League title, and Fenerbahce respectively.
The Aston Villa fans in the Transfer Tavern are delighted to be linked with a move for Meireles, and feel he will add that spark in midfield that has been missing for many a season at Villa Park.
