Report: Aston Villa manager Unai Emery closing in on signing £137k-a-week La Liga winner this summer



La Liga champion Aston Villa is reportedly “near” to signing him, according to a recent Spanish media source.

With Unai Emery leading Aston Villa to a spot in the top four, it appears like the next season will see a Champions League campaign.

As a result, they will need to spend a larger transfer budget this summer in order to compete with the best in Europe.

Even though they still have a game in hand, Emery’s team is seven points ahead of Tottenham Hotspur in fifth position. This is hopeful because they only need six points from their final three games to finish in the top four.

Having said that, it appears that club executives are already organizing their player acquisitions, with one player reportedly “near” to joining Villa Park.

According to Spanish publication AS, Aston Villa is “near” to acquiring Atletico Madrid defender Mario Hermoso.

Villans and Serie A powerhouse Inter have both made approaches to the £137k-a-week player, whose contract expires this summer.

Villa is leading the race, though, since Hermoso is in favor of going to the Premier League to work under Emery’s direction.

The 28-year-old is particularly excited by the prospect of playing in the backline with fellow countrymen Pau Torres and Alex Moreno.

In reality, the international player from Spain, who is estimated to be worth £21.4 million on Transfermarkt, is said to be persuaded by the money side.

Mario Hermoso’s signing would be a wise business move.

Villa will have made a wise business decision if Emery and Monchi are able to sign Hermoso on a free transfer.

The left-footed defender’s extreme versatility—which is becoming more and more valued in the current game—allows him to play both left- and center-back.

The La Liga winner would also bring a wealth of European experience, which is essential if Villa is to fulfill its dream of qualifying for the Champions League.

Any potential agreement is unlikely to happen until after Hermoso’s contract with the Estadio Civitas Metropolitano expires at the end of June, when he becomes a free agent on July 1.
