Gregg Evans has revealed that Aston Villa came close to signing Joe Gomez and Benjamin Pavard during the 2015/16 season, on The Athletic.

The pair now play for Liverpool and Bayern Munich respectively, but could easily have been plying their trade at Villa Park, had things turned out a bit differently.

Evans tweeted about the article, which has got plenty of Villa fans talking about missing out on the pair of defenders.

Looking at the respective players’ records, it is pretty clear to see why Villa fans would be disappointed about missing out on them.

Gomez has played 100 times for Liverpool, and has a Champions League, Club World Cup and UEFA Super Cup to his name.

Did he really play for us?! No Villa fan has managed to name all of these obscure Villans….

Meanwhile, Pavard joined Bayern Munich from Stuttgart in the summer for £31.4m and has also won the World Cup with France.

However, not everyone is so upset about Gregg’s admission, feeling that things wouldn’t have turned out well anyway.

At the time, Gomez was at Charlton Athletic and Pavard was plying his trade for Lille, so there will have been no guarantee of success for either of them.

When looking at Villa’s defence this season after various signings being made, who have conceded the most goals in the league with 56, the scepticism is understandable.

Who is the bigger miss?





Meanwhile, Villa fans have been reacting to their links with a Jack Grealishesque star.
