Aston Villa are reportedly keen to sign Blackburn Rovers forward Bradley Dack, according to The Sun.
The 25-year-old smashed 18 goals last season and is now attracting interest from Premier League clubs.
Brighton and Hove Albion are also interested in landing the player who joined Rovers from Gillingham in 2017.
Dack enjoyed a tremendous first season in the Championship. He registered 10 assists to go alongside his glut of goals and is a versatile performer.
Villa are showing the strongest interest in the player with Villa keen to bolster their squad following promotion to the top-flight.
Graham Potter will be looking to hit the ground running during his first season at the AMEX Stadium. The Seagulls scored just 35 goals in 2018/19 and he will look for an improvement on that front.
It comes as little surprise that Dack is attracting interest from the Premier League.
Dack was one of the Championship’s top performers last season with 18 goals and 10 assists.
Looking at the players they are being linked with this summer, Villa appear to have a sensible strategy in the transfer market. Poaching some of the Championship’s top players will probably excite the fans more than stockpiling a bunch of unknown foreign imports
Choosing between Villa and Brighton might not be such a tough decision for Dack.
Villa have a substantial infrastructure, fan base and there is also a sense that they belong in the Premier League.
For Brighton next season looks like being a challenge once again. Potter won’t have a great deal of money to spend and they will almost certainly face a season of struggle once again.
