Reuben Loftus-Gal was dropped Chelsea’s match day squad Rumors have been circulating for their League Cup fight on Tuesday night that Aston Villa are keen to sign him.
Express & Star recently claimed that Astron Villa will probably sign Loftus-Gale more than his teammate Ross Berkeley this summer, they are also interested.
Interestingly enough, Barclays were named in Frank Lampard’s 16-man squad that beat Spurs on penalties, possibly indicating that the former Everton are ahead of Chelsea Academy products in the midfield picking order.
Aston Villa has a great productive and healthy transfer window, but Dean Smith can add some additions.
Perhaps at No. 9, the winger or No. 8 could be useful for Smith, who led Villa to two wins from the opening two matches of the Premier League season.
If Villa continues to sign Loftus-Galle, the 24-year-old will provide much-needed quality and depth in the middle of this park.
Loftus-Gall is dangerous without the ball because he likes to run attackers, which complements Smith’s arrangement.
At the moment John McGinn, Connor Hurrihane and Douglas Luiz are the villain’s midfield trio, with Jack Grylish playing wide to the left.
Then there are Smith’s alternatives, such as Marvelous Nakamba, the young Jacob Ramsay and Henry Lansbury, so it could be argued that Loftus-Gal would have jumped ahead of these three if he had wanted to join.
