Aston Villa plot move for star 'who loves scoring goals' as interest builds


Aston Villa are surely contenders for having the best summer window in the Premier League.

After narrowly avoiding relegation last term the objective was always going to be based on moving forward this term.

It certainly seems that they're doing that.

The brief to Villa's recruitment team was to bring in quality, not quantity and that's something which has been evident in the deals completed so far.

Matty Cash, Ollie Watkins, Emiliano Martinez and most recently, Bertrand Traore all seem to fit the bill and will ensure that Dean Smith's side are better equipped to compete this term.

Those deals may have cost more than £74million, but I'm sure that many would see it as money well spent.

But while this business has been impressive it seems that they're not finished yet.

Reports would suggest that Smith is still looking for a natural striker to lead his new-look side, with several names already mentioned as options.


One of those is Rhian Brewster.

The Liverpool man faces an incredibly bright future in the game after coming through the ranks at Anfield.

This was shown last season with his half-season on loan with Swansea City returning 11 goals as the Championship side narrowly missed out on the play-offs.

But with first team opportunities likely to be limited under Jurgen Klopp, it's been claimed that Villa will look to compete with Sheffield United and Crystal Palace for his signature.

Writing on Twitter, Nixon said: "Brewster had talks with Klopp and knows his best chance of a game is a move out. Sheffield United still mad keen but struggling with fee.

"Aston Villa could afford but would he start? 

"Crystal Palace have money and big long-term interest."

GIVEMESPORT'S Phil Spencer says...

Whoever signs Rhian Brewster will be doing very well.

The striker is one of the hottest young prospects in the Premier League at the moment and it seems that he's set for a career at the highest level.


It was always going to be tough to break into the first team set-up with Liverpool, and that's why a move away seems likely.

Reportedly available for £20million, Brewster would be a real asset for any side outside of the top six.

Steve Cooper described the striker as someone 'who loves scoring goals', and that will certainly serve him well in the Premier League.

For Aston Villa it would be a real coup.

To see Brewster playing alongside the likes of Ollie Watkins, Bertrand Traore and Jack Grealish is something that will get supporters very excited.

Not only that, but it is the sort of attacking unit that would surely see them move away from the relegation battle this time around.
