Aston Villa fans are wanting Rafael Leao to join the club this summer

According to Superdeporte, Aston Villa are one of the teams interested in Portuguese starlet Rafael Leao.

The forward, who currently plays for Lille, is also attracting the attention of Valencia in a deal which could cost any potential suitor a fee in the region of €30m (£26.9m) per the report.

Yet, despite the price of the deal after spending £22m on Wesley, Villa fans seemed to be absolutely delighted at the possibility of signing him.

They flocked to Twitter to have their say and they were hugely excited. One fan said that he and Wesley would be unbelievable together as one individual begged with Villa to sign him.

Another supporter suggested he was a great prospect whilst a further tweeter made reference to Anwar El Ghazi, saying that if Leao was anything like the Dutchman after his loan move from Lille, they should get him in.

The striker was in solid form in Ligue 1 last term, finding the net on eight occasions whilst also picking up three assists in 24 outings.

Leao has previously been described as the ‘Portuguese Mbappe‘ so that particular slice of information bodes well for Villa supporters.

Here’s the best of the reaction.
