Welcome to our live coverage of Aston Villa on Sunday July 18th.
Head coach Dean Smith wants to bring in a few more players before the summer transfer window closes next month. Ashley Young and Emiliano Buendia have both joined the club before, but with a few positions to strengthen ahead of the new campaign, Villa is yet to finish business.
With a midfielder and striker on the schedule, as well as a third senior keeper to keep Emiliano Martinez on his toes, Villa has a lot of work to do.
Emile Smith Rowe of Arsenal was on the agenda after two offers were turned down while James Ward-Prowse of Southampton was also a name in the frame.
Villa has also been continuously linked with Chelsea’s Tammy Abraham, while Argentinian giants River Plate’s Julian Alvarez is also interesting.
Meanwhile, Manchester United are set to allow ex-Villa Loane player Axel Tuanzebe to leave the club this summer – will Villa take a step?
