After gaining promotion to the Premier League on Monday it appears as though Aston Villa are wasting no time in their pursuit of possible transfers.
The Daily Mail have reported that Villa are expected to bid £10m for Nottingham Forest’s Joe Lolley. The winger was in tremendous form this term and he could now be about to move back to the Premier League following his spell with Huddersfield previously.
After seeing the report, supporters of Villa took to Twitter to discuss his possible arrival and many were in agreement that he’d be a good signing.
One fan said they’d cry if they signed Lolley, claiming he deserved it. Another referenced the fact that they couldn’t rely on John McGinn and Jack Grealish again so the 26-year-old would be an ideal addition.
A further supporter suggested the club could be aiming higher in the market but claimed it was good to see Villa looking to sign fans of the club.
Lolley was Forest’s star man this season as he quickly became one of the most dangerous players in the Championship. As well as finding the net 11 times in the league, he also laid on 11 assists for his teammates including four in the thrilling 5-5 draw at Villa Park in November.
Here’s the best of the debate.
Good. This guy will be brilliant for us. Trust me

Can’t rely on McGinn and Jack all season. Someone like lolley would be an ideal addition

We have the lolly now for Lolley, but I think we might be aiming higher than Lolley in the transfer market, unless he’ll be a squad player. Good to sign Villa fans though ?
