According to latest reports, Aston Villa are amongst a host of clubs who are keen on Bristol City star Joe Bryan. It is being reported that the likes of Everton and Burnley are also in contention for the signature of the player but will face competition from Villa.
The player is valued at a price of £6m in the current market and it was reported that Burnley are way ahead in the race for Bryan. Sean Dyche’s men are playing European football this season and are keen on wrapping up their summer shopping early. They have apparently identified Bryan as a summer target and with the European card up their sleeve, the offer can be attractive for the player.
As for Everton, the Toffees are lavish spenders in the current market. Ever since the takeover by Farhad Moshiri, new players have been brought in and the club has spent a fortune in the market. It will not be a surprise to see Everton shell out more money than Villa and Burnley to get their man.
This leaves Villa in a state of bother as they are the one not to have the money or the attraction of Europe to get Bryan. Villa has been excellent this season. However, they finished 4th in the league and will now have to win the playoffs final to qualify for top-tier domestic football.
To term the season a success, they will have to win the final otherwise they will be stuck playing in the second tier. Bryan is a young defender and at the age of 24, he still has a lot of scope to improve. He is a versatile and exciting footballer who can also play on the left flank or as a central midfielder should his team require him to.
Bryan has played 48 games for Bristol City this season scoring 7 goals and setting up 3 more. The numbers are absolutely ridiculous for a player who spends most of his team defending at the back. At Villa, the club has been structured by Steve Bruce to work in a defensive and organized manner.
This would mean that the addition of Bryan would be a perfect signing for Villa. However, as mentioned before, the player reportedly has better offers on the table and Villa will have to do some real convincing if they want to sign him over Everton and Burnley.
