Aston Villa fans react to Will Hughes transfer link


Aston Villa fans have taken to Twitter to express their reaction to reports linking the club with a move for Will Hughes.

According to reports from The Express, Villa are keen to sign the Watford midfielder this summer.

Dean Smith is looking to bolster his midfield options, with Villa registering an interest in signing James Ward-Prowse early this summer.

With Southampton refusing to wilt under pressure, it seems Villa have turned their attention towards signing the former Derby County midfielder.

Hughes joined the Hornets from Derby County back in 2017 for around £8 million and played a key role last season as the club secured promotion.

Many Villa fans appreciate that Hughes is a good player, but they feel he is not the one who can take the club to the next level.

Smith has stressed the importance of bringing in quality players to Villa Park, and fans have urged the club to show ambition in the market and sign the likes of Ward-Prowse or Harry Winks.

According to The Sun, Watford could demand around £12m for the 26-year-old, which seems a decent value for a player who has made 118 appearances for the club.

Villa have been active in the transfer market, having signed Emiliano Buendia from Norwich City for £33m and Ashley Young on a free transfer.

They have also been heavily linked with a move for Emile Smith-Rowe, and have had bids rejected for the Arsenal star.
