Aston Villa are in negotiations with Lazio over forward Libor Kozak. Paul Faulkner and Paul Lambert are going to be very busy over the next 24 hours as they plan to ship out 4 players and hopefully bring in a few more. Kozak might join Aston Villa on loan if a deal can be made within the next 24 hours.
Kozak was the Europa League’s top scorer last season, but didn’t score a single goal in the Serie A last season. Some reports claim that a deal has already been agreed but I’m not going to confirm this one until it actually happens. From what I’ve also been reading, Kozak is a little bit like Klose, not very fast but very good in the air.
I don’t really want to complain about a transfer target but I do question the need of Kozak, especially since Lambert has already signed a very similar player in Helenius. On top of that, Aston Villa also have Bowery, who Paul Lambert has also signed. Unless, the plan is to play him behind Benteke I really see no need in Kozak.
Still, some argue that we need to strengthen our team, which I agree, but I think that our forwards have potential and given the right service (in the form of an attacking midfielder), Aston Villa will have a great season.
