According to The Sun, Aston Villa are one of the teams interested in Blackburn’s Bradley Dack.
The attacking midfielder was incredibly impressive for the Lancashire side last term, scoring 18 times in all-competitions.
Dack was a force in front of goal but also displayed a strong creative nous as he claimed seven assists.
The Blackburn man could now be on the move to the Premier League, however, after Villa were touted as a possible destination.
Having recently achieved promotion, Villa have already signed one attacking player in Jota. Another new acquisition in Kortney Hause could also arrive after the Villans triggered the £3m option to buy him following his loan spell.
With a potential move for Dack on the cards, what do Football FanCast’s writers make of the move?
Have a read below to check out their thoughts…
“I think Villa already have too many players who play in Bradley Dack’s role, and for that reason he should be left alone. There are many more positions that need strengthening at Villa Park; the Villans shouldn’t waste their cash on this needless investment.”
“In my opinion, Bradley Dack would have been a good signing for Aston Villa if they had failed to gain promotion to the Premier League. At the moment Dack is an excellent player at Sky Bet Championship level, but not quite good enough to make the step up to the Premier League. Dean Smith’s men should steer clear of the 25-year-old, for now at least.”

“It seems strange that Villa are interested in Dack considering he is likely to play second fiddle to Jack Grealish. However, strength in depth is absolutely integral to surviving in the Premier League, and bringing in a quality back-up for Grealish could be the difference between relegation and survival. And, if Smith can work both players into the same system, it could give Villa an exciting new dynamic.”
