Aston Villa transfer news: Serie A star on shortlist, pair could leave & Burnley man eyed

Aston Villa transfer news

In this article, we will bring you all of the latest Aston Villa transfer news.

Make sure to check back to the site for more transfer updates throughout the 2022 January window.

Serie A star on shortlist

Firstly, Aston Villa are being linked with a move for young left-back, Aaron Hickey.

The Scot is currently plying his trade in Serie A with Bologna, whom he joined from Hearts in September of 2020.

The 19-year-old has featured on 19 occasions for the Italian outfit this term, providing four assists – an impressive record for a full-back.

And now, as per the Birmingham Mail, citing the Daily Record:

Aston Villa boss Steven Gerrard is reportedly ‘keen’ on accelerating a move for Aaron Hickey.

It is added that Hickey is on a shortlist of targets that Steven Gerrard could sanction moves for in January, and that the player is ‘braced’ for an approach.

Pair could leave Villa

Next up, reports emerging on Sunday claim that Anwar El Ghazi and Trezeguet could be allowed to depart on loan this month, with Aston Villa set to ‘listen’ to offers for the pair.

Both players have struggled for a regular starting spot since Steven Gerrard came in.

Burnley man eyed

Finally, Aston Villa are once again being tipped as a potential landing spot for Burnley star, Dwight McNeil.

Villa were linked with McNeil back in the summer window, when Dean Smith was still at the helm.

Now, though, The Sun report that the winger remains a transfer target for the Claret and Blue, despite their change in manager.

Aston Villa already have several high-profile options capable of playing out wide on their books, including the likes of Bertrand Traore and Emi Buendia. So, do they really need to splash the cash on McNeil?
