Lambert keen on additions

Published Add your comment

Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert hopes to bring in two new strikers before the transfer window shuts on Friday, Press Association Sport understands.

Lambert bolstered his defence on Wednesday with the capture of Middlesbrough left-back Joe Bennett - the fifth signing of the summer. But he is now looking to add firepower to supplement fit-again Darren Bent and the currently-injured Gabriel Agbonlahor.

Villa have increased their bid to sign Genk forward Christian Benteke to around £5.5 million after their initial offer was rejected. The midlands club are hoping to hear on Thursday whether they have been finally successful in their attempt to land the Belgium international.
