Aston Villa fans react to Wylan Cyprien links

Aston Villa fans have been reacting to reports of interest in Nice midfielder Wylan Cyprien.

Foot Mercato claimed on Friday that Dean Smith’s side are sold on the 25-year-old dynamo, and that there is even a £16 million offer on the table.

There is no agreement at the moment between Nice and Bordeaux over Cyprien, meaning Villa may still be in the hunt for the player.

Dean Smith has hinted he may move for another central midfielder, telling Birmingham Live: “We’re just looking at the midfield area at the moment and we’ve got John McGinn, Douglas Luiz, Makamba, Conor Hourihane and Jack who can also play there but we feel he’s a bit more productive playing off the left, so we’re a little bit light in there.

“It’s certainly an area we’re looking at.”

Villa are also being linked with Chelsea pair Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Ross Barkley at the moment.
