Aston Villa transfer target set to make bold decision as interest in starlet grows

A look at all the latest Aston Villa transfer news and rumours as Steven Gerrard’s men look to build on their win over Norwich City.

Aston Villa are battling it out for a top-half finish, three points off 10th spot and with two games in hand.

Steven Gerrard’s men snapped out of their poor run over the weekend with a win over Norwich City, and will now be looking to kick on.

A clash with relegation-battling Burnley this weekend should give Villa hope of continuing their recent improvements.

But as we wait for the return of Premier League action this weekend, we have rounded up the latest transfer talk.

Chukwiemaka could leave

Villans starlet Carney Chukwuemeka is being linked with a move away from Villa Park this summer.

According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, the young midfielder could make a move away from the Midlands, and even the Premier League, amid a lack of game time.

Romano tweeted: “His recent lack of game time has put a host of European clubs on alert – with Germany a likely destination as he enters the final year of his contract.”

Villa miss out

Villa were previously linked with a free move for Borussia Monchengladbach centre-back Matthias Ginter.

Ginter is set to leave Monchengladbach at the end of this season when his contract expires, but it seems Villa will miss out on the opportunity to complete a deal.

According to Bild, the defender is set to rejoin Freiburg, remaining in Germany.
