The 2020 January transfer window is just around the corner, and Aston Villa will be considering what business they will do. The Lions are in the midst of their first season in the Premier League, and they will be hoping to have a better window than in previous years. In this article, we will have a look at some of the players Aston Villa could sign in January transfer window.
Here are the 8 players Aston Villa could sign in January transfer window –
8. Danny Loader
Highly rated at Reading, Danny Loader has often been linked with moves to the top flight over recent years.
Just 19 years of age, he would fit the mould in terms of Villa’s transfer strategy under Smith and Christian Purslow – signing younger players with potential, that can accrue high re-sale value.
He was very close to a move to the Midlands over the summer, with the youngster seemingly set for Wolves, only for that deal to fall through.
He’s out of contract this summer, so Reading are likely to entertain offers if a new contract can’t be agreed.
The only issue Villa may have is other clubs battling for his services, with Manchester United one of the latest sides linked with a move for the promising striker.
7. Rhian Brewster
Liverpool youngster Rhian Brewster could be available for grabs in the winter transfer window. Although it is understood that Villa don’t plan to splash the cash to the same extent as in the summer, a loan move could be viable.
According to the Mirror, Villa are keen to take the 19-year-old striker on loan. Dean Smith is among a host of Premier League and Championship managers said to be keeping tabs on Brewster.
Villa fans will be able to get a close look at Brewster later this month with the forward expected to feature in a second string Reds side in the Carabao Cup quarter final at Villa Park.
6. Aleksandar Mitrovic
Villa are scouring the market for a new forward to support Wesley Moraes as January draws nearer and Darren Bent thinks Mitrovic could be the answer.
The 25-year-old has been in stunning form for Fulham this season.
Former Villa frontman Bent told talkSPORT: “Come January, Mitrovic might be gone. I can see a few Premier League teams (taking an interest), like Aston Villa whose centre forwards aren’t scoring many goals.
“These teams should look at him because he’s too good for the Championship. He’s a big, strong powerful target man who scores goals when given the service.”
