Defoe and Adebayor out, Benteke in?

0

The Daily Star are reporting that Andre-Villas Boas wants to sign Aston Villa striker Christian Benteke.

According to the report AVB is ready to pay £15million for the Belgium hit-man who has scored 14 goals in Villa’s faltering season which has seen them battling against relegation.

Even more staggering is the claim that AVB is ready to sell both Jermain Defoe and Emmanuel Adebayor – by replacing them with three new forwards! It would take a huge some of money from Daniel Levy if he was to bring in three world-class forwards in the summer.

The paper continues with Spurs are mindful of the fact that Villa may have to settle for less than £15million if they are relegated.

  1. We don't pay the highest wages or biggest transfer fees so we are not going to be signing all these £30 million pound players.I think players like this will improve us massively i'd also like to see possibly remy and lambert as targets.

  2. I think Defoe is worth persevering with and a good sports phsycologist might be able to sort out his lack of confidence. Even when he's out of form at least he tries.
    Which brings me round to Adebayor, who i think is taking the piss and doesn't seem at all bothered at his near zero contribution. He's hardly going to be in demand and it might even be cheaper just to terminate his contract.

  3. Just watching Berbatov play the other night makes me so sad we didn't sign him this year. If he had played instead of Adebayor, one wonders how many goals he could have scored for us by just taking the chances created by Spurs for our woeful strikers.Instead we have to hold thumbs that we makthe top 4.
    Relace both our strikers next year with any of the top rated strikers being available. Without scoring goals,
    we can't win games.

  4. Sell Adebayor, he’s hopeless; leave Defoe as a substitute and buy both Higuain (if we fail, go for Benteke) and Aubameyang. That would cost about 30m but it is a necessity to bring in two more world class strikers. Additionally, sell the likes of Huddlestone, Livermore, Gallas, BAE and Dempsey, bring a left back (Umtiti?), right back as a competition for Walker (Corchia?), leave Townsend in the club + buy another winger as a replacement for Lennon and, the most important, bring in Eriksen and we’re title challengers. It will be tough but it’s possible. COYS!

  5. If Villa stay up the kid goes nowhere – and Villa will be back in the hunt for top four/six next year. Gabby, Weimann, Benteke, Guzan, Delph, Westwood…there's a very strong spine of a top, top side taking shape at Villa Park, you'd all better hope they get relegated!

    I just don't see any player leaving Villa for clubs like Spurs, to be honest. it would take relegation and a fire-sale for any club to get a chance of grabbing the best Villa players on the cheap.
