Aston Villa fans react to reports they could sign Pedro

Aston Villa are reportedly considering a move to sign Chelsea winger Pedro during the January transfer window, as reported by The Telegraph.

The Spaniard has made six starts in all competitions for Frank Lampard’s team so far this season, making a further three substitute appearances.

This lack of game time has led to the possibility of him leaving Stamford Bridge on a cut-price deal, with Villa interested in making a move.

There are various fans who are excited by the prospect of signing the 32-year-old, with superlatives such as “baller” and “super” being used to describe him as a player.

After all, this is a man who has won a World Cup, three Champions Leagues and a plethora of other major trophies throughout his career with Barcelona, Chelsea and the Spanish national team.

Should Villa sign Pedro in January?





He offered an indication last season that he can still have an impact, as he made 52 appearances across all competitions, scoring 13 goals and assisting five.

However, not everyone is as thrilled about the links as those shown above, with some referring to his age as a reason not to sign him, whereas one fan has suggested he can “jog on” because the club needs a striker more.

Who became only the fourth player in history to represent two relegated teams in a single Premier League campaign?

Villa only have two current players – Tom Heaton and Ahmed Elmohamady – who are above the age of 30, so there seems to be a wariness around the idea of adding to that number.

The latter stance comes with concerns over Wesley after the Brazilian took his run of games without any goals or assists to eight during the 4-1 loss against Leicester.

In other news, Aston Villa fans have been discussing Wesley’s performance against Leicester.
