Aston Villa ‘plan’ move as player attracts transfer ‘interest’
All the latest Aston Villa transfer news and rumours as Steven Gerrard looks to add more new faces to his squad.
Steven Gerrard and the club’s recruitment staff have not held back in adding to the squad ahead of the new season.
Villa are already looking stronger thanks to signings such as Boubacar Kamara, Philippe Coutinho and Diego Carlos.
And the incomings may not end there, but we should also see some outgoings as the Lions look to balance the books.
For both of those reasons, it is an exciting summer for Villa fans, who will want to see an improved season next time around.
For now, though, the concentration is on summer business, and here we round up all the latest transfer news and rumours.
Villa midfielder Douglas Luiz is attracting transfer attention from a European giant.
According to Tutto Mercato, the midfielder is now being eyed by AC Milan, who appear to have missed out on Renato Sanchez to PSG.
The report comes amid claims Villa want more than £30million this summer, and that’s despite being willing to offload him due to his contract situation.
Luiz is out of contract this time next year, and Villa would be better off selling for a fee now if they want to avoid offering a new contract.
Villa have already strengthened their midfield this summer, and they could now sell Luiz to the Serie A champions, if they are willing to pay up.
Villa are said to be eyeing a deal for Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos this summer.
Like Luiz, Morelos could be sold this year to avoid the possibility of him becoming a free agent, and while Rangers are having contract talks, the striker could get his head turned by interest.
And according to 90min, Villa are aiming to do just that, eyeing a move for the striker this summer, with a potentially cut-price deal on the table.
