Aston Villa plot £12m move for enigmatic Premier League star

By Mark Peters IN General,Transfers - 20:00 Dec 14th 2016
 

Last night’s 1-0 defeat at Norwich was undoubtedly a setback for Aston Villa, but they are definitely moving in the right direction under Steve Bruce thanks to a return of 18 points from ten games.

If the West Midlands outfit are to secure an instant return to the Premier League via the playoffs, then it is crucial that they spend well in January.

JEFFREY SCHLUPP

According to Winner Sports, one potential target could well be Leicester City’s Jeffrey Schlupp, with the enigmatic winger likely to cost in the region of £12m.

The 23-year-old was part of one of the most amazing sporting success stories in recent history last season, featuring in 24 of the Foxes’ 38 top-flight fixtures:

Only once were Claudio Ranieri’s men beaten when Schlupp was involved, whilst they also averaged 0.3 more goals per game when the Ghana international took to the pitch.

Blessed with incredible speed and a willingness to play in a variety of positions, it would be a real coup were Aston Villa to make this deal happen.
