The word is quickly starting to spread that Aston Villa are looking into a potential signing of Crystal Palace attacking midfield Jonathon Williams.
The 21 year old has spent most of the season on loan to Ipswich but has now returned to Crystal Palace for the second half of the season.
I don’t know much about the player, but I do know that he played 18 games for Ipswich and scored 2 goals during that period.
He has a lot of buzz around him and in 2013 it was reported (albeit by the Mirror) that Arsene Wenger was ready to lure him to Arsenal with a 10m bid.
West Brom’s Nabi is also gaining a bit of traction. The 20 year old striker hasn’t started any games for the senior team yet but did score a hatrick for the U21 team against Aston Villa earlier this season.
Regardless of whether we like the players, the rumours and talk are all good and so is the idea that we are looking into attacking midfielders and strikers, but if we do go for a young, talented prospect, we need to ensure that we are not a stepping stone and they are committed.
Read into it what you all will.
