Todd Cantwell has been targeted by Dean Smith alongside playmaker Emi Buendia.
Tabloid reports suggest Villa are very keen on Buendia with Premier League rivals Crystal Palace also credited with an interest.
If captain Jack Grealish was to leave Villa Park, Buendia is seen as an ideal replacement. Only Grealish, Trent Alexander-Arnold of Liverpool and Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne created more chances in the Premier League than Buendia in 2019-20.
Grealish continues to be linked with a move away from Villa, with fresh reports in the national press today claiming that Manchester United and Manchester City are interested in the 24 year-old.
Now The Telegraph is reporting that Villa are interested in Buendia but are also keen on Norwich teammate Cantwell, and stories continue to link them to Brentford’s Ollie Watkins.
