Steve Bruce has spoken recent of his ambitions in the summer transfer window, and I think this could be the ideal target for Aston Villa if they envisage a title challenge next season.
The £4.25 million-rated attacking midfielder Viktor Fischer could be a desirable incoming at the West Midlands over the coming months, as the boss looks to scrap the deadwood amongst his first-team squad.
A number of big names are likely to depart Villa Park before the new campaign begins, including out-of-favour Scottish forward Ross McCormack and potentially winger Jack Grealish – a victim of constant criticism from the supporters.
These withdrawals could pave the way for several top quality arrivals and that involves Middlesbrough’s Viktor Fischer, whom hasn’t quite adjusted to life in the north-east since moving to England last year.
The Danish international has been restricted to just twelve appearances for the Premier League outfit, suggesting that he hasn’t become the star people thought he would be after twelve months in the top-flight.
Admittedly, Fischer is contracted to ‘Boro until the summer if 2019 but that shouldn’t cause Steve Bruce to hesitate if he wants to acquire the player’s signature.
His current employer could endure relegation to the Championship and therefore face Aston Villa next season, so I’m sure there will be a major overhaul at the Riverside Stadium just as will be conducted at Villa.
In recent times the Villains have seen promising wingers arrive and fail to impress, the first that springs to mind is Adama Traore who incidentally is now a team-mate of Viktor Fischer.
Jack Grealish is possibly going to join the failed attackers list at Aston Villa and be on his way out over the summer.
The recommended replacement may thrive in the second-tier under a wise boss such as Bruce and if the 22 year-old became the first signing of the transfer window, then that would definitely display the club’s ambitions,
Aston Villa supporters, would you take Viktor Fischer in the first-team? Could Jack Grealish be on his way out? And is the Dane a suitable replacement? Let us hear your thoughts in the comments below!
