Aston Villa linked with Matthias Ginter transfer move

Aston Villa have now lost all of their four previous Premier League games, the latest of which being their disheartening 4-0 defeat against Tottenham Hotspur at Villa Park.

This has now left the Villans with 46 goals conceded in 31 league games, which is more than the likes of Burnley, Crystal Palace and Brighton & Hove Albion.

Looking ahead to the upcoming summer transfer window, it seems as though the Villa Park outfit have already identified one potential target that could come in and fix up their defensive issues.

What’s the news?

According to a recent Twitter post from journalist Florian Plettenberg, Villa manager Steven Gerrard wants to sign Borussia Monchengladbach defender Matthias Ginter this summer.

The journalist also added that the Midlands club have spoken to the centre-back’s management about a potential move to Villa Park but that he has not made a decision about his future yet.

His current contract at the German club is set to expire in the summer, meaning that the Villans could potentially secure Ginter on a free transfer as they did with Calum Chambers back in January.

Which club did Villa sign Leon Bailey from in the 2021 summer transfer window?

Their own Sergio Ramos?

Since joining Monchengladbach from fellow Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund back in the 2017 summer transfer window, the centre-back has gone on to make 177 appearances across all competitions.

In those appearances, the £21.6m-rated defender has managed to score 11 goals and provide five assists along the way.

To highlight the 28-year-old’s solidity at the back, out of the 45 tackles he’s made in the Bundesliga this season, he’s managed to win 32 of them, giving him the eighth-highest rated success rate for tackles in the entire league.

The German international has also racked up the highest number of clearances (101) at his club as well as the fourth-highest number of interceptions (46), showing just how capable of a defender he is.

Labelled as a “leader” on the pitch by Lothar Matthaus as well as being likened to Sergio Ramos, Ginter could be exactly what Gerrard needs in his team to make them stronger in defence and harder to score against.

Moving forward, if a free transfer for Ginter is on the cards in the summer, then this is something that the Midlands club and Johan Lange should definitely be looking to complete, especially if Gerrard is keen to have him in his squad.
