Tuesday's Aston Villa Press Transfer Talk

Tuesday's Aston Villa Press Transfer Talk

July is almost upon us, that is the month I expect swift action, lets hope we aren't left disappointed! A few new links have appeared today, so lets see what the papers say!

According to The Sun today, Villa are set to pounce for £5million rated Espanyol striker Luis Garcia. The 28-year-old, who can also play as a winger, is also apparently wanted by Porto but the Spanish international wants a move to the Premiership.

The Mirror this morning have an 'exclusive' despite Sky Sports publishing the same rumour last night... Ho hum!

Anyway, the report by Alan Nixon says that Villa are set to bid £5million for Middlesbrough's Tuncay Sanli and are willing to match his wages, said to be around £65 000

They claim that Martin O'Neill is keen on the Turkish international (19 goals in 65 games) due to his versatility and 'unpredictable skills'.

Boro apparently want the deal done quickly as they need to plan and buy for their season in the Championship.

On the same link last night, Sky Sports said that Liverpool had been linked to the player but skysports.com has learnt it is Villa that are closest to making an official approach.

One player strongly linked to Aston Villa can now be ruled out as former Reading striker Kevin Doyle has moved to Premiership new boys Wolverhampton Wanderers. Full details: BREAKING NEWS: Official Doyle joins Wolves

According to another report, West Ham will open up contract talks with Matthew Upson who has just two years left on his contract, in order to stave off interest from Villa and Spurs. The Hammers chief exec Scott Duxbury is looking to tie up Robert Green to a longer deal as well but admitted the England defenders situation is 'slightly more pressing'.

The Mirror claim that Spurs boss Appy Arry has joined the race for Sweden U21 striker Marcus Berg. The player was linked to Villa last week and has since been linked to Everton. This report claims Berg, who scored 7 goals in 4 games in the European Championship earning him the golden boot, will cost around £10million. The prices being suggested last week were around £5million but apparently since his sterling performance in the Euro's, his club Groningen have put the price up after much interest!



According to the Wiki stats he has a better than 1 in 2 games goal ratio for club and country (U21). He has also scored 1 for the full Sweden team. Details: wikipedia.org/wiki/Marcus_Berg
