Still think we need another centre forward, unless Traore can cover there.

We do but realistically, who's going to want to join us knowing that come January he'll be third choice at best?

dunno. Barkley joined chelsea injured so missed  most of the first season. after that he's played 79 games in 2 seasons not including this one. Seems good to me.

Being arguably overrated at Chelsea is quite different to being seemingly too overrated for us in our current position. He'd improve us. But he'd have to be happy to come, there's always that worry that a player poached from currently more salubrious football environs will be pissed off about their decision by the time they first set foot in the North Stand car park. If a deal can be struck that satisfies all parties, I say get him in.

Well its 2020. He can live an hour from the training ground if he loves london that much. On the other hand its much nearer to scouse land than london. Its all about ambition at the end of the day. Bit part player at chelsea, or main man at villa with a potential productive partnership with an England midfield colleague. He's 26, nothing stopping him have 2 amazing seasons at Villa and getting a move to supposedly greener pastures or us making a hefty profit on him for that matter.. I've said it before but he strikes me as ambitious and  with a high opinion of his self-worth. Doesn't seem the type who'd sit in the Chelsea reserves for 2 years.

Troare spent much of his early days as a centre forward. It's only in the last couple of years he's been moved out wide.

Berts can definitely cover up top.

Watkins, Wes and Berts is ample cover for that one up top.

We'll sign another forward who could play centrally or wide Id guess - Brewster, King, someone like that.

Isnt Brewster almost exclusively a striker?  I read it is a reason that Klop is happy to sell as he cannot fit their system.

I cannot see another Striker coming in, With Watkins, Davis and Wes , With Wes being back in 3 months.
So if another Striker comes in that be 4 players fighting for one spot and Dean cannot keep all them happy, Davis will not be going on loan as looks like he be getting game time this season which i have to say i have been impressed by his start.
We need wingers and love to see 2 more coming in, Not want AEG or Trez no where near the squad no more as clearly not good enough.
Not understand why so many negative thoughts about Barkley as he would improve our midfield ten times over, So much better than Hourihane.
RLC i only worry about his injury can he be the player he was before if yes then get him in, Barkley or RLC would be massive upgrades don't mind which one or can get both would be just a dream.

We need somebody reasonably priced like Davis, Brewsters millions.

Brewster would be a good signing, almost an investment.
I can see us signing another forward - you need 3, so with Was out of action for a while.... and it'll take him ages to get up to speed.

And on Ross Barkley - is he an improvement on the choices after Luiz and McGinn - yes he is.

I think RB can be a class act on his day and would love to see him in a Villa shirt. RLC is also a class act in my view but his injury record concerns me. Either would be a step in the right direction but getting neither wouldn't upset me too much as it makes room for Jacob Ramsey to get game time. I'd like to see a left back and a naturally gifted left sided striker. Centre back cover is also high on the list for me.

No idea how reliable, but linked with a 10M move for FC Kobenhavn CB Victor Nelsson. Apparently have liked him since before Lange arrived, but now we have Lange it would put us in prime position to get him.

Only joined Kobenhavn last year, but they need the money.

Rashica had a mare yesterday on FIFA for Werder, missed two sitters and conceded a penalty converted by man of the match Benhrama for Brentford.

Seems like Brentford and Celtic are almost begging teams to sign Benrahma and Edouard off them now, after saying they would not sell for about 30M and 40M respectively earlier in the transfer window.
