Two Villa Striker Links
A report in the Daily Mail today suggested that Villa are looking at smashing their record transfer fee (£9.5million for Juan Pablo Angel during the John Gregory era) and bring in former Manchester United striker Diego Forlan.
The report suggests that the Uruguay striker has an exit clause in his contract meaning he can leave Villarreal if a £15 million bid is made.
The Daily Mail have Forlan quoted as saying: 'It’s not only Liverpool who’ve asked about signing me. In January, I rejected a loan move to Sunderland. I also know another Premier League club are asking about my availability.'
So whether this is the Mail guessing that Villa is 'the other club' or not I don't know! Still, that is a better link than the one in the Daily Star claiming Villa and Birmingham are fighting it out for the capture of West Ham striker Marlon Harewood. I have seen reports where the striker is reportedly valued at around £3million.
