Aston Villa are looking to improve their midfield options this summer and are keeping tabs on Harry Winks, Todd Cantwell and Dwight McNeil.

According to the Telegraph, Roma are keen on signing Douglas Luiz from Villa this summer, and Dean Smith is looking at potential replacements.

Winks has struggled to hold down a regular starting berth at Tottenham this past season and could prove a smart signing for Villa.

The 25-year-old is very good at recycling possession and controlling the tempo of the game. He could be an ideal foil for John McGinn.

The interest in Cantwell seems surprising, with Jack Grealish the undisputed starter in his position for Villa.

Unless Grealish leaves the club this summer, Cantwell’s signing would not make sense for the Midlands club.

As far as McNeil is considered, the 21-year-old is highly rated and could prove to be a top-quality investment for Villa.

They could certainly use some pace and flair in wide areas, and the Burnley star would be an ideal fit.

Villa have also been linked with a move for James Ward-Prowse, although Southampton are eager to retain his services.

The Midlands club been active in the transfer market this summer, with Emiliano Buendia and Ashley Young already agreeing to join the club.
