Pundit expects Aston Villa to sign new centre-forward after what Fabrizio Romano said this morning.



Aston Villa will acquire a new center-forward prior to the February 1st transfer deadline, per Fabrizio Romano’s statement.Alan Hutton, a former fullback for Aston Villa, is honored to serve as our exclusive columnist. Every week, he will offer his opinion on the most discussed topics at Villa Park…

Aston Villa will likely acquire a new center-forward prior to the January transfer deadline, according to Alan Hutton, following the release of information regarding Jhon Duran’s destiny at Villa Park.As Emery does not wish to deplete his attacking options, it appeared that Villa might be prepared to allow the 20-year-old to leave Villa Park this month if they are successful in closing the deal on Middlesbrough’s Morgan Rogers. [The Daily Mail, January 25].Fabrizio Romano further stated via X (25 January) that Chelsea are contemplating a move for the Colombian forward this month, and that the club is already engaged in internal deliberations regarding its next course of action, although no decision has been made as of yet.


Hutton acknowledges his inability to comprehend Emery’s decision to allow Duran to depart during the January transfer window. However, he believes that Villa must acquire a replacement in order to maintain their position in the race for Champions League qualification.


“I believe they would be compelled to,” Hutton stated to Villa News.”If you examine their league standing, you’ll notice that they’re fourth, but they’re only two points behind second-place Manchester City. It is extremely tight, and they will undoubtedly be motivated to make a run in the remaining months of the season.


“Who would fill in if something were to happen to Ollie Watkins, who is currently the most sought-after individual, although I pray that nothing bad would happen to him?


“In January, if Duran were to depart, you would need an alternative candidate to bring in, so the situation will be intriguing.” It is possible that it could occur at this time, but I am unable to comprehend why they would release him.”Duran has primarily served as a supporting player for Watkins in the Premier League thus far this season. Despite scoring twice in 14 league appearances, the 20-year-old has yet to earn a starting spot in Emery’s squad, with his sole appearances occurring in cup competitions.


Despite this, the Colombian forward has demonstrated considerable potential in his limited appearances; losing him at such a critical juncture of the season would be an enormous liability.


With any luck, Aston Villa will acquire a new number nine should they permit this transfer to occur.


Hutton maintains his conviction that Aston Villa will complete the acquisition of Middlesbrough’s Morgan Rogers this month.
