Aston Villa are preparing for life back in the English Premier League and have been linked with plenty of transfer targets already.
The Villans need to boost their squad in order to impress in the top-flight next term and hold on to their Premier League status at the end of the campaign, and the club’s former star Stan Collymore has shared what he thinks about them potentially signing the aforementioned duo.
Big ?? if we got both.
KP has plenty of experience for his age and will want sooner or later to step up in division, plus we need legs, physicality and discipline in MF.
Goalie, for me, is most important signing of the summer. JB nowhere near his peak and plenty still to prove. https://t.co/vY8NUTDLtg

Leeds will only allow Phillips leave if Villa meet their £20 million asking price, but the newly-promoted side are preparing to bid £14 million and test the resolve of the Elland Road outfit.
Stoke have also slapped £20 million on Butland’s head with Bournemouth also keen on the England international, and it remains to be seen if the Villa Park outfit are willing to splash £40 million on the duo.
