Aston Villa will look to sign Southampton right-back Kyle Walker-Peters

Aston Villa is actively pursuing a new right back, and according to sources, they have expressed their interest in Kyle Walker-Peters, as reported by TEAMtalk.

Unai Emery has undoubtedly achieved remarkable results since assuming the managerial role at Villa. He has successfully propelled the team from a mid-table position to becoming contenders in European competitions. When Emery first took charge, the Birmingham-based side languished in 16th place. However, an extraordinary streak of performances, elaborated upon in this article, has propelled them to their current standing. With their sights set on European qualification, Villa’s owners, Nassef Sawiris and Wes Edens, are now prepared to invest substantial funds to support Emery’s ambitions. Regardless of their final position in the league this season, the ambitious owners firmly believe that a productive summer transfer window could position Villa as challengers for the coveted Champions League spots in the 2023/24 season.

Having featured in 91 matches for Southampton, Walker-Peters has contributed two goals to their cause. However, due to persistent injury concerns, Villa’s current preferred option, Matty Cash, has struggled since his return from the World Cup. Consequently, the team has heavily relied on the services of 37-year-old Ashley Young in Cash’s absence. Although Young has performed admirably, Emery recognizes that he cannot rely on him indefinitely.
