Aston Villa are eyeing a move for Southampton striker Sam Gallagher, who was on loan at arch rivals Birmingham City last season, reports Birmingham Live.
Would the 22-year-old be a good signing for the Villans?
It doesn’t surprise me, Gallagher is a good player and would act as a replacement for Kodjia.
He’s not in the same league as the likes of Marriott, Grabban or Vydra though, signalling the change in levels for Villa this season.
Many Aston Villa fans will be underwhelmed but there are worse options out there.
Given their current financial woes, the Villans will struggle to find top strikers on loan or on a free transfer.
Perhaps if Southampton want Keinan Davis, they could factor Gallagher into the deal as a makeweight.
He’d be a good signing.
Gallagher wasn’t prolific at Birmingham last season but he is a good target man and brings others into play.
As well as that, he is a young player who is always improving. Given Villa’s situation he is probably as good a signing as they could expect.
Gallagher would be a good addition at Villa Park.
The striker took time adapting to life at Birmingham last season, but will be a better player because of that loan spell.
He’d be perfect for the way Bruce wants to play football and could thrive at Villa Park.
