Aston Vila Are Close To Land Brentford Forward: Right Man To Fit Into Bruce’s Philosophy?

Aston Villa are one of the favourites to sign Brentford forward Lasse Vibe. According to recent odds released by the United Kingdom bookmakers, the Villans are third favourites to secure the services of the Danish forward before the end of this transfer window. The 30-year-old striker looks set to depart Griffin Park after Bees manager Dean Smith confirmed that he is in talks with another club. Leeds United are currently leading the chase and are priced at 7/1 with BetVictor to land the signature of Vibe but he is more likely to make a move to China. It is understood that Vibe is currently in negotiations with Yanbian FC and BetVictor priced a move to any Chinese team at 1/2. 

The Danish international has found the back of the net 36 times in 94 league matches for Brentford since making a move from IFK Gothenburg in the summer of 2015. According to United Kingdom bookmakers Bet Victor, a whole host of Championship clubs are chasing his signature this month. Aston Villa are priced at 8/1 as they step up their pursuit of a striker before the transfer window comes to a close at the end of this month.

Vibe is highly versatile and can operate on a number of different positions across the frontline. He primarily plays as a centre-forward and can also operate on the right flank.

Steve Bruce’s team are in sensational form in the English Championship and currently find themselves in 5th place in the league table, with a tally of 50 points having played 28 league matches. They are well on course to earn a playoffs spot at the end of the season but Steve Bruce could look to motivate his players to push and chase down second-placed Derby County in their quest to earn an automatic promotion into the Premier League at the end of the current campaign.

The potential addition of Vibe to the Villans attack will give Bruce’s side another dimension going forward as the West Midlands outfit looks to build for a better future under the stewardship of manager Steve Bruce. The 30-year-old has featured in 19 matches for Brentford this season, scoring seven goals and providing one assist in all competitions. At 30, he still has a good few years left in him to perform at a high level.

It remains to be seen whether the Villans are successful in their efforts to fend off stiff competition from fellow Championship rivals in pursuit of the Brentford forward before the end of the January transfer window.
