‘Looks decent’: Aston Villa fans rave about Wesley Moraes ahead of £23m transfer

The big Brazilian is set to discuss a contract with the Villans after a deal was struck between the two clubs.

Aston Villa are set to sign Club Brugge striker Wesley Moraes for £23 million, according to Belgian outlet HLN.

The 22-year-old will pen a five-year deal at Villa Park, becoming the first Brazilian to ever play for the club.

It is thought that Bayer Leverkusen were also interested in his services, but his desire to play in the Premier League has given Villa the edge.

Moraes was in superb form last season. In 48 games for the Belgian giants, he netted 17 goals and contributed 10 assists.

It was vital that Villa replaced the goals scored by Tammy Abraham last season, with the England Under-21 star now back at Chelsea.

Moraes comes with a glowing reference from Belgian football experts and it is hoped he will have a significant impact.

Signing him this early could prove a masterstroke by boss Dean Smith. Moraes will now have the entire summer to get used to his new surroundings and work with his new team-mates.
