Aston Villa boss Steven Gerrard is still eyeing a couple of more additions before the transfer deadline on September 1st…
That’s according to transfer insider Dean Jones, who delivered an exciting claim to GIVEMESPORT this week, where he revealed:
“I think they’re still looking for a centre midfielder that can go into that team and start games.
“They’re still looking at a big addition in centre-midfield and they’re looking for a big addition in attack.
“It’s just about finding the right type of player.”
This is certainly an update that will leave many supporters around Villa Park absolutely buzzing as it shows that the Liverpool legend is wanting to add further quality to the squad ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.
Villa finished in a mediocre 14th place last term though at one point they looked to be embroiled in a relegation battle before Gerrard steered the ship following Dean Smith’s sacking.
It remains to be seen what sort of target the Villans boss is after, with mooted options Kalvin Phillips and Yves Bissouma opting for Premier League champions Manchester City and Champions League-bound Tottenham Hotspur, respectively.
One name that has cropped up is Chelsea gem Conor Gallagher, who Birmingham Mail believe is hugely admired by the former Rangers manager. However, there is no sign on whether his future lies at Stamford Bridge or not.
Tomas Soucek is another player who has been linked with a switch to the Midlands, with his contractual situation at West Ham currently up in the air.
As for further up the pitch, Gerrard already has the likes of Ollie Watkins and Danny Ings as his centre-forward options, though Jonathan David is another name that Villa have been keen on, as per The Athletic.
Either way, Villa are by no means finished in the transfer market going by this update from Jones, so with a little under two months to go until the deadline, fans should be rather excited about what lies ahead.
