Christian Benteke looks like he’s back in form and knows where the onion bag is once more. But goals win games and there is still too much emphasis on the big Belgian to score them.
The best teams share the goals out so that the solitary injury won’t immediately lead to a crisis.
Consequently Paul Lambert has been scouring the market for strikers this winter window. Grant Holt has joined the club to add experience and nous to the forward line.
But The Metro, among other sources, reports today that Aston Villa may do a major deal on deadline day:
Aston Villa have made an ambitious move to sign Juventus striker Fabio Quagliarella on loan for the rest of the season.
The forward has been told he can leave Juve on loan in return for a small loan fee and Villa hope to win the race to sign him.
The Italian is one of those players who was incredibly hyped as a youngster. While he may not have quite realised all that potential he has still had a solid career. He’s played for no less than 8 clubs, all based in Italy.
His latest club Juventus have fielded him 80 times since he joined from Napoli in 2010. He’s scored a decent 23 league goals in that time.
At 31 years of age there is still lead in the pencil and we think that his style suits The Premier League. He would make a really good addition to the Aston Villa squad.
Let’s have a look at the lad in action. Aston Villa fans, would this guy add quality to the side?
