This Julian Alvarez of River Plate who we're being linked with looks the business, shades of Coutihno about him

Yeah seen the same report Ally, it sounds pretty genuine as well.
Only 21, and is very well thought of, let's wait and see.

Agent Martinez on the case again? 🤔 while he's at it see if he can get their No10 interested, he looks OK from his YouTube highlights 😁.

What the Messi ah surely not even Agent M could pull that one off 🤔.

I think we should take a punt on the kid, last time we had a sniff of buying someone from River Plate was Falcao for £2M, but Heskey for £3M instead was a much better deal 🙄

They only slight downside is Alverez is another player favouring the right flank. Ideally, I would prefer someone for the other wing.

Despite El Ghazi’s goal return last season, I remain unconvinced. His contributions are too sporadic for a first team performer in a side aspiring to be a top third regular year in, year out.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jun 2021 05:04:55
Alvarez is apparently very adept at playing centre forward as well, so could be a good replacement/ competition for Ollie, who used to be a winger himself.
And yes, very witty Moosey boy, as we’ve come to expect 😁.

It would appear that we've had a 25 million bid for Smith Rowe turned down by Arsenal.
I can't say I blame them, he has the potential to be a very good player. That doesn't mean to say he will do though, many promising 20 year olds fall by the wayside. So whilst I can understand them turning it down and I think 25 million is a fair bid for this player.

It is suggest an improved £30M deal has now been made for young Emile. Gooners are spouting off at the disrespect shown by those ‘cheeky upstarts’ at Villa. Times are a changin’ as Bobby D once spouted….

Looks like we're interested in Ashley Young on a free. Seems a no brainer to me, lost 3 experienced players this summer so bringing someone in who has been at the highest level, won almost all there is to win at club level, knows what it takes to make the step up and knows the club, can only be a positive. Plus despite his age, proved last season he still has the ability to provide adequate cover for a number of positions.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

15 Jun 2021 22:56:25
Hard to believe he’s 35, great player for us in the past. if he’s still got the legs I’d have him.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Jun 2021 07:35:21
Played 34 times in a title winning season last year so you’d imagine he’s still got enough in the tank!

Not the sort of signing that gets everyone excited but could be shrewd bit of business. Barry to Everton, Milner to Liverpool type signing!

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Jun 2021 14:29:02
Not for me. Having him back at his age just doesn’t seem to meet our owners requirements.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Jun 2021 17:09:17
It would be great to have Ashley back at the club. Apart from being an asset on the pitch and a very capable replacement for Matt Targett, I think he could have a big influence on our younger players. We are lacking players with his level of experience, and that in itself would be invaluable.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Jun 2021 17:35:29
My thoughts exactly Mark.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Jun 2021 22:56:16
Think he’d be a brilliant addition. Get him involved in some coaching, can cover both fullback positions, and even play further forward. He’s a great athlete, and has a winning mentality. Also, takes a wicked set piece. Bring him home!

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jun 2021 20:28:09
Wasn’t sure on this one and wondered if Ashley was using his surname as camouflage. However, on reflection, maybe a short term arrangement isn’t a bad shout, given his versatility. He might even see a fair bit of game time across various flank roles.

Another wise old head will be useful too.

After signing Buendia, if we got Ward-Prowse, Andrea Bellotti and an up and coming left back, would be the perfect transfer window for me

Does anybody rate Joshua king of Bournemouth.

{Ed002's Note - He left Bournemouth in January and has just been released by Everton. My notes say: Josh King (S) Out of contract in the summer and his agents are looking at options in Germany and Turkey. Galatasaray see him as their preferred option over Christian Benteke but Aston Villa and Celtic offer options in the UK.}

Not particularly if we want a striker on a free how about Danny Welbeck I don’t think Brighton have extended his contract as yet.

Not for me thanks is my polite way way of putting it.

Anybody know anything about Papa Matar Sarr? Seems like this guy is generating a lot of interest from some big clubs including us but from what I read this is his breakthrough season and he has only really played a relatively small number of games, no doubt given the level of interest he is a good player but at only 18 is he up to the rigours of the premiership?

Believable0 Unbelievable0

There are several reports in France saying that Villa have lodged their interest and are prepared to pay around 25 million euros for him. Seems a lot to pay for an 18 year old but he is one of the most highly rated in his age bracket over here. His FIFA rating is currently 61, with a potential of 79, which is exceptional. Chukwuemeka for instance has a current rating of 56, with a potential of 74.
I didn’t watch many Ligue 1 matches this season, so I can’t give you my impression of him. However, the reviews, the high FIFA ratings, the fact he’s already played for Senegal, and our needs for a quality DM, where he supposedly excels suggest he might be a good one to go for.

{Ed002's Note - Pape Matar Sarr (DM/CM/AM) Metz don't want to sell the versatile youngster after only signing the youngster last summer but if a good offer were made they would consider it. Unlikely to qualify for a Work Permit in England and one who will be off to AFCON although Everton and Aston Villa will seek an exemption if they can reach agreement over price as both may have the need to recruit a replacement for Luiz and Besic.}

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Jun 2021 20:15:17
I forgot about the work permit element to this with the new rules following Brexit. Not sure what the criteria is for qualifying, seem to remember a player has to have played a minimum number of games at a certain level etc.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Jun 2021 22:38:38
Is the criteria something to do with games played for their national team and/ or fee paid for the transfer Ed?

Chris, I’ve read up a bit on this and I expect you probably have done also, but for the benefit of those who haven’t
then.
EU players will need a GBE ( Governing Body Endorsement ) . This can only be immediately approved with a score of 15 points. Points are awarded on criteria, including no. Of international caps and the FIFA ranking of the players country. The strength of the league from which the player is arriving from and the number of club appearances they have already made is also a factor.
If a player scores between 10 and 14 points an exceptions panel will make a ruling.
I did read however, that there could be a special permissions for players between 18 and 19, if they don’t qualify for a GBE, such as if they have made a certain number of appearances in the first team of their current club, but it didn’t specify how many.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Jun 2021 20:39:33
I hadn’t read up mark, so thanks for letting us know👍 Sounds like a Visa isn’t out of the question then if the link is true.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Jun 2021 12:25:25
If we are looking for a left back to challenge Targett how about Antonee Robinson at Fulham, premier league experience, right age bracket and wouldn't be too expensive I would have thought.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

08 Jun 2021 19:02:34
I saw Josh Doig mentioned of Hibs. The last player we bought from Hibs was a bargain, could he be another?
Just 19, but he was picked as the left back for the pick of the Scottish Premiership team apparently.
John, I replied to your post regarding Papa Matar Sarr around midday today also, but clearly it got lost or rejected perhaps!

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Jun 2021 20:19:14
Seen that Mark, he said he wants to stay put mate.
Leeds are looking at him as well Mark, mind you they have only got 3 gift vouchers, 50 green shield stamp books, and an expired visa card.
😁😁.

That much 🤣🤣.

Robinson isn’t a bad shout. It is tricky identifying players with potential, who may need to be content with a covering role. Salary is often the inducement. Both LB and CF roles look key areas for this.

I wouldn’t write Wesley off yet, but see his better role being one where he runs at defences off the left side - a sort of old inside forward, if anyone still has any idea what I am referring to!

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Jun 2021 10:06:45
Now Man City have failed to recall Luiz what happens next? Are we obligated to sell him back at a higher price if MC come calling?
Edd perhaps you know the ins and outs of this?

{Ed002's Note - Manchester City had the option to buy the player back but could not simply take him back without the agreement of the player. Manchester City have apparently considered it but they have other targets for that role and have already signed a youngster who is expected to do very well in that same role, meaning Luiz would be cover at best. I am told the player does not want to return and not play - so he will stay with Aston Villa.}

Thank you Edd.

I read somewhere that Liverpool are looking to offload Marko Grujic, defensive midfielder, who’s just finished his loan deal at Porto. Apparently he will be available for as little as 12 million. Ed001 do you know if there’s any truth in this, also how do you rate him, and do you think he would be a good fit for AVFC.

{Ed001's Note - yes, but he will need a new work permit, which might be difficult to obtain. I like him as a player, but he has had a few attitude issues in the past in training, not working hard enough. That seemed to be cleared up in his loan spell with Cardiff when Colin Wa**er called him out on it publicly, but those kind of things can always return. Good range of passing, makes late runs into the box when given the freedom too, so could be a good option for Villa.}

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Jun 2021 14:24:48
Thanks for that Ed.

{Ed001's Note - very welcome.}

Another rumour I've just seen, 18 year old Senegalese midfielder, PAPE SARR, don't know much about him but he's described in the same mould as gueye, seems we have enquired about him he plays ligue 1 for metz, looks like he has potential but I'm sure he might have other admirers, all in all seems like a player who would fit the bill at VP.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

06 Jun 2021 08:33:42
I heard about this kid few weeks back Whackattack and as you say described as next Gueye/ Kante type player, I think he is the type of player we definitely require but there is a lad a Monaco who's 20 his name begins with Tchumondia or something along those lines plays for French under 21's and watched him during under 21's tournament who I personally I think we should go for. Both are the type of defensive destroyer that we require.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Jun 2021 11:32:38
I have had a bit more of a look at Sarr. He looks a handy box to box player with a good long shot within his arsenal.

It is always a bit difficult to translate performance clips to how you would imagine he would perform in the Premier League. I suspect he could come good after a bedding-in period, but I struggle to see the press’s correlation between him as a DM and Sadio Mane, who is a LW. Apart from nationality and both being footballers, the comparisons look completely dim-witted to me.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jun 2021 21:08:26
Emi Buendia looks set to join the new revolution at Villa Park, who is next that we want through the doors. I personally would like to see us get Matty Targett back up sorted also Axel in 2 and then move to the rest of the attacking options.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

05 Jun 2021 22:31:47
Don’t see the lure of axel tbh he has very little experience at the top lvl, we have enough bench warmers, much rather white. I can see us getting another winger and I think we will spend a good sum on a striker, maybe a LB but I see promotions from the U23’s to fill up the bench.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Jun 2021 08:36:54
I think Axel just covers the CB's positions Whackattack as I can see Engles going and we need that extra cover in there, I agree with the promotions from the u23's all I know is whatever the club is doing they are going forwards in every direction.
