Aston Villa are reportedly keen on Sheffield Wednesday ace Adam Reach.
According to the print edition of The Daily Star (via HITC Sport), Aston Villa are planning to raid Sheffield Wednesday for their prize asset.
Steve Bruce recently took over as manager of Sheffield Wednesday and the ex-Villa boss could face a battle to keep his star man.
Reach won Sheffield Wednesday’s Player of the Year accolade last season and has continued his impressive form this campaign.
With six league goals (including some very memorable long-range strikes) to his name this season, Reach has caught the eye.
The former Middlesbrough man would be an ideal signing for Aston Villa, if Dean Smith’s men can afford him.
The Owls are holding out for £10m for Reach, which could price Aston Villa out of the market.
But if they can drive down his asking price, then the 25-year-old could be their missing link in the quest for promotion.
As well as scoring six goals in 25 Championship games, Reach has also registered three assists, completed over 600 passes and provided 42 key passes, according to Who Scored.
But the ex-England youth international’s most important asset is his versatility.
Reach is equally comfortable playing as a winger, left-back, left-wing-back, central midfielder or as a number 10.
His adaptability makes him a useful option for Smith in a variety of positions and his quality could help lead Aston Villa to promotion.
