Gerrard urges Aston Villa to sign superstar Europa League winner

  • Nov 24, 10:26

Steven Gerrard is looking to put his own imprint on the Aston Villa squad in the January transfer window and has reportedly become a big admirer of a Europa League winner and Spanish international.

According to Spanish source Fichajes, Gerrard wants Villa to go all in and sign Pau Torres from Villarreal in the new year – a defender that has been linked to Real Madrid, Man Utd and Tottenham, to name but a few.

The Europa League winners would seek in the region of €50million for the deal to transpire, with the club fully aware of the 24-year-old’s stock and value at this stage of his career.

The report, in Spanish, states that Torres may still lack some of the qualities of a top, elite player, and as such a move to an Aston Villa could be the smart move – not forgetting the pull of the Premier League and ambition shown by the Midlands club.
