With the latest news centred around Manchester United’s ongoing pursuit of Jack Grealish, Villa will likely to be exploring alternatives in the event of any breakdown of crunch talks due imminently.
This has included a raft of transfer rumour concerning reinforcements over recent weeks throughout the squad, including efforts to identify targets in order to mitigate any loss of our marquee player.
There has been increased speculation concerning Milot Rashica. The Kosovan born winger was left out of Werder Bremen’s recent friendly, fuelling the belief that the 24 year old is on his way.
Said Benrahma is a name who has been linked to Villa repeatedly throughout recent transfer windows. Villa opted to explore other options last summer (signing the likes of Trezeguet) whilst having to contend with utilising a £140 million transfer budget as part of a squad over-haul.
Whilst the Algerian midfielder appeals, despite having missed out on promotion with Brentford, he does have many Premier League suitors. This not only adds competition for his signature but risks over-pricing any deal as multipe clubs scramble ahead of the campaign restarting in just a matter of weeks.
Villa have been linked also with Brazilian Emi Buendía, but it’s his team-mate Todd Cantwell who is the latest name to appear.
Cantwell is an interesting footballer who stood-out in a Norwich side that looked ill-equipped for Premier League survival. Villa are reported to be ‘weighing up a bid’ for the creative midfielder who scored seven goals and contributed two assists throughout the Canaries single season back in the top-flight.
