With Jack Grealish signing for Manchester City for a huge fee of £100m, the Villans now have the task of replacing him.
Leon Bailey has already arrived from Bayer Leverkusen to help, but there could be extra manpower on its way to fill the gap the England international will leave.
According to Il Messaggero, Joaquin Correa could be on his way to Aston Villa if all goes to plan, as ‘they could insert themselves’ in the race to sign the Lazio man.
Everton and Leicester City are reportedly also in the mix, with the player’s agent continuously trying to get the Argentina international an exit from the Serie A side following the arrival of Maurizio Sarri.
In fact, the representative ‘is ready to arrive in the capital’, meaning Rome, ‘with important and definitive offers’.
Whether Aston Villa will be one of those offers, we’ll have to wait and see, but it’s fair to say they definitely have the money to meet the €30m+ demands from Lazio.
