Though not officially confirmed by Villa, the deal is believed to have set Dean Smith and co. back 30 million pounds.
Abraham & Tuanzebe loan moves eyed
Elsewhere, Aston Villa look to be eyeing a double loan swoop of Premier League stars.
According to Sky Sports News, Villa are interested in loan moves for Chelsea’s Tammy Abraham and Manchester United’s Axel Tuanzebe.
Both players have previously plied their trade at Villa Park back in the 2018/19 campaign when they won promotion to the Premier League.
And both have, at least in 2020/21, seen their chances very much limited for their current sides.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has already all but confirmed Tuanzebe will be loaned out this summer following Raphael Varane’s arrival at Old Trafford, whilst it is hard to see Abraham staying at Chelsea if Romelu Lukaku is brought in this summer.
There is one potential issue with an Abraham loan, though, as Sky reports that Chelsea would prefer to sell Abraham than send him out on loan, valuing the 23-year-old at around 40 million pounds.
Aston Villa interested in Sarr
Villa have now already signed both Emi Buendia and Leon Bailey this summer.
Despite this, their links to other attack-minded midfielders have continued.
One of the latest names linked has been Watford winger, Ismaila Sarr. TeamTalk, citing Homme du Match, report that the Midlands-based outfit are preparing to make an offer for wide-man, who could be a replacement for Jack Grealish.
Said offer will reportedly be around 28 million pounds.
