Aston Villa: £51 million star might have been’most exciting acquisition’ at Villa Park

This summer, Aston Villa had the chance to make a game-changing acquisition at Villa Park.


The Juventus winger Federico Chiesa was “one of the most exciting signings of the summer” for Aston Villa, according to Dean Jones, a transfer insider who analyzes the club’s chances of luring the star to Villa Park in the future.

Federico Chiesa has transferred to Aston Villa.

Aston Villa was prepared to offer more than £51 million to recruit Juventus winger Chiesa this summer, according to a report from Sky Sports Italia in June. The Bianconeri’s financial woes have diminished their influence in the Italian game and forced them to sell off property at the Allianz Stadium. Villa attempted to improve their team before the transfer market closed on September 1st, but a deal never materialized, according to CalcioMercato, who stated that Juve’s financial demands ‘didn’t scare Villa’.

Ultimately, Villa struck a reported £51.9 million deal to acquire France winger Moussa Diaby from Bayer Leverkusen, killing any chance of signing Chiesa this summer. Nicolo Zaniolo, a winger on loan from Galatasaray, was also welcomed by Emery at Villa Park. However, Philippe Coutinho’s departure might make more offensive reinforcements in January even more necessary. Jones told GIVEMESPORT in July that Villa were hoping to take advantage of the recent Serie A star exodus, but the Villans decided against signing the Italian international.

What has Jones stated regarding Chiesa and Aston Villa?

Jones thinks Villa will need to continue performing at a “very high level” in order to get Chiesa back to Villa Park in the future, and he speculates that a team like Liverpool would make a play for him.
