A number of Aston Villa fans have taken to Twitter to comment on reports from the Daily Mail which recently suggested that the Villans are heavily interested in Aleksandar Mitrovic.
January is looking set to be a crucial month for Dean Smith’s side. They sit in the bottom three in the Premier League and have lost five of their last six games.
One of the major problems that Smith would surely love to address next month is their striker situation. Wesley has struggled since arriving in the summer. And Smith does not have many other options to turn to.
It would be no surprise if Villa look to sign a new striker next month. And it appears that one player they have their eye on is Mitrovic.
The Daily Mail recently suggested that the Villans are heavily interested in the former Newcastle United man.
And it appears that the large majority of Villa supporters would love to see the Serbia international signed next month.
The 25-year-old is the Championship’s leading goalscorer this term, with 18 goals coming in 24 games. He has been a brilliant signing for Fulham, and has previously done reasonably well in the Premier League.
And some Villa fans believe that signing Mitrovic could make a huge difference as Smith’s men battle to stay in the top flight.
Here is what some of the supporters make of the reports…
Just get it done.
Whatever the cost, must be cheaper than relegation.
