Aston Villa Closing In On Deal To Sign Barkley

Aston Villa are reportedly closing in on the summer addition of Luton Town midfielder Ross Barkley.

Although Villa concluded the campaign with an embarrassing 5-0 defeat at Crystal Palace, it has been otherwise successful campaign in the Premier League.

Spanish coach Unai Emery has guided Villa to their first-ever appearance in the Champions League courtesy of finishing in fourth position in the standings.

As a result, Emery will now work diligently with the club’s recruitment team in order to make signings that make sense for the club at a time when they are somewhat restricted by financial regulations.

Villa have work to do in order to fulfil the Premier League’s Profit and Sustainability criteria, even with the benefit of revenue that will come from the continent.

They are in a position where they may have to consider player sales in order to work themselves into a satisfactory state ahead of taking on more high-profile fixtures in 2024-25.

According to The Guardian, via Sports Mole, Villa have wasted no time in trying to add to their squad in a bid to steal a march on some of their rivals.

The perception was that Barkley was in somewhat of a last-chance saloon when being offered the opportunity to sign for newly-promoted Luton after his exit from Nice.

Not only has Barkley being able to earn regular football with the Hatters, he has showcased his qualities in the centre of the pitch on a consistent basis.

Barkley has made a total of 30 starts and two substitute outings in the Premier League, contributing five goals and four assists for the relegated side.
