Aston Villa forward attracting interest from several Championship clubs

Aston Villa’s Keinan Davis is in high demand this summer, according to Football Insider.

Swansea and Huddersfield are amongst those chasing his signing, with a reported six clubs interested in a loan deal.

According to the Daily Mirror, QPR and Preston have also had their eye on the forward at one point this summer, and with Aston Villa strengthening over the summer Davis could have fallen down the pecking order.

The 21-year-old only featured on six occasions last season and now Villa are in the Premier League it is likely that he could depart in search of first-team football – with the club also having Wesley Moraes, Jonathan Kodjia and Scott Hogan in their ranks.

Championship Picks

The Swans could soon be in desperate need of a striker too. They looked like they would hold onto Oli McBurnie but Sheffield United have now met their asking price for the player, which means they could be left with Joel Asoro as the only forward option at the club.

Huddersfield could also do with strengthening their attacking options, although Karlan Grant and Steve Mounie present good options at Championship level.

The Verdict

Keinan Davis has a lot to prove but he would be a gamble, particularly for Swansea if he is to be their first-choice striker.

Steve Cooper is good at working with young players but Davis has only made 18 starts in his career to date, and he is yet to show he is ready to start games regularly in the Championship, let alone replace a prolific striker like McBurnie.

Likewise, it is difficult to see him breaking into the Huddersfield sign ahead of Grant, Mounie or even Koroma. He would be a good impact player for both teams to have though, as he would be able to influence a game from the bench using his pace, so it would be interesting to see how he fairs with more game time.
