Aston Villa chasing Everton winger, Unai Emery set to axe Steven Gerrard signing
and live on Freeview channel 276
Aston Villa are enjoying something of a mid-season renaissance under Unai Emery, with the Villans currently sitting in 11th place in the Premier League table. The January transfer window over halfway complete - can they bring anyone else in before the deadline passes?
Reports suggest that Villa are in the race to sign a young winger who currently plays for Everton. While he’s currently out of form for the Toffees, a move to Villa Park could reinvigorate the starlet’s confidence and get him scoring goals again.
Additionally, Unai Emery is willing to allow an English defender to leave the club, according to reports. He was signed for the club during Steven Gerrard’s managerial stint, but has only made four Premier League appearances this season.
Villans interested in young Everton winger
Aston Villa, alongside a long list of other high profile clubs, are reportedly keen on bringing Anthony Gordon to the club (per 90min). The 21-year-old burst onto the scene last season for Everton - this season, however, he hasn’t been quite as impressive as he was.
Despite notching up a similar goal tally (three this year, four last year), his general play and energy levels have often been found lacking. This being said, a move away from Goodison Park could be what the youngster needs, as the Toffees draw ever closer to relegation.
Villa could let Calum Chambers leave
Former Arsenal defender Calum Chambers signed for Villa last January under Steven Gerrard. However, Unai Emery reportedly wants to move him on, according to the Daily Mirror.
With Emery keen to make his mark on Villa’s team, he apparently has no qualms about axing players who he deems to be surplus to requirements. Reports suggest that Calum Chambers is among the players who could leave Villa park in the January window.
