Another reported target, according to the players agent, is Javier Saviola.

According to Alfredo Cabrera, Aston Villa have made an offer for the Barcelona striker.

The 24-year-old, who has been out of favour at the Camp Nou and spent time on loan at both Monaco and Sevilla, has just one year left on his contract.

the South American’s agent said, when asked about Villa, ‘It is true. We have options in Spain, England and Italy, but there will not be definitive movement until Wednesday.’

  • isnt he similar to gabby n moore but a worldclass player? if we got him would it mean one of them wuould have to go out on loan?

  • My friend who is a journalist confirmed what we already know: they sit in a pub all afternoon, invent stories then stagger back to the office and write them up as fact. I’ll believe it when I see these guys wearing a Villa shirt. We haven’t even signed Pe

  • We need a bigger SQUAD and need to add real quality to what we have already got so it is inevitable that some players will be rested, suspended, injured or dropped. Im afraid if we want to challemge domestically and in europe then this is what must happen

  • Agree with you deemz, the squad needs strengthening and in all area’s (2 Strikers, Attacking Midifielder, Holding Midifielder, Right Wing, Left Back, Central Defender) to help with what’s already there. It is good to see we are being linked with players

  • this is the vital villa site isnt it (not vital real madrid?). Before the takeover we were being linked with carl cort and jason koumas. Would love Saviola but sometimes agents say this to drum up extra interest. Keep the dream alive.

  • He’s got playing history with Juan the Man Pablo as well, I reckon he’d be a class acquisition and the prospect of Angel/Saviola or Baros/Saviola with Luke and Gabby making a few starts or playing off the bench sounds like a ******* decent strike force to

  • Saviola played with Angel at River Plate. So, who knows ? Maybe linking up with his old strike partner appeals!

  • This is great I hope we get Saviola he is one of my fave players ive been trying to sign him for ages on championship manager 2006 and now it seems he could be coming in real life this is fantastic everything about Villa is fantastic at the moment and I d

  • WOW this is a true turn around, Petrov signed and now more rumours about Saviola. This is amazing, I still think we could do with a defender as well seeing as we are going for it.
