Aston Villa receive concerning Matty Cash transfer update as rivals eye recent signing

A look at all the latest Aston Villa transfer rumours as Steven Gerrard’s men prepare to face top four hopefuls Arsenal.

Aston Villa are preparing to face Arsenal in the Premier League this weekend.

Steven Gerrard’s men suffered a defeat to Europa League quarter-finalists West Ham United last time out, and that followed a run of three straight wins.

Villa will be keen to return to winning ways this weekend to remain in the top half, but it will be no easy task against an Arsenal side in the thick of the top four race.

In the meantime, preparations for next season will be ongoing, and here we look at the latest Villa transfer rumours.

Concerning Cash update

Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has issued a concerning update on Matty Cash’s Villa future amid links to Atletico Madrid.

Speaking on his Here We Go podcast, he said: “I want to say again about Matty Cash and Atletico Madrid because it was already news in February, but I wanted to say again because he’s still top of the list for Atletico Madrid at right-back.

“And so it’s a serious, serious possibility for Atletico."

Ings links

Another player to have been linked with a move away from Villa is front man Danny Ings.

Ings only joined the Midlands club on a £25million deal last summer, and he has since scored five and assisted as many.

According to Football Insider, Brighton are now considering making a move for the former Southampton striker as they look for a proven Premier League frontman.

It will be interesting to see how Villa approach the situation, and it will likely depend on what business they manage themselves this summer.
