Gerrard’s Aston Villa are evidently preparing for a major summer transfer window. The Villans massively backed their manager in the winter transfer window, and same is going to be repeated. Gerrard’s Aston Villa are steadily improving and churning out results. As a result, the club is ready to hand in their manager full power over the transfers.

Steven Gerrard has laid his plans as well to shape Aston Villa’s transfers. January was Gerrard’s first transfer window with Aston Villa and he did carry out solid business. As many as four players were signed in Philippe Coutinho [on loan], Lucas Digne, Calum Chambers and Robin Olsen. Outgoings were experienced too with Matt Target, Trezeguet, Anwar Al Ghazi all leaving on loan. However, two players could commence Gerrard’s summer plans for Aston Villa. They are on loan players Trezeguet and Frederic Guilbert.

Double sale eyed as Gerrard’s plan outlined for Aston Villa transfers

Steven Aston Villa wants to bolster the squad as he has already made it clear that he wants to fight for European places. He is more than happy with right-back Matty Cash and asked the club to renew him. As a result, the right-back has signed a new long-term deal. Next Gerrard has identified defensive mid as priority. He wants either Kalvin Phillips or Yves Bissouma to replace potential mover Douglas Luiz.

But first, Aston Villa wants a clear-out. Starting with Trezeguet and Guilbert, fringe players would be on their way out. The task won’t be a difficult one as both are impressing on their loan moves. Trezeguet did play an important part in Aston Villa’s past couple of seasons, but his injury derailed his form. Moreover, Coutinho, Buendia, Traore all pipped the winger in pecking order. However, his loan to Turkish side Basaksehir is exploding. The winger has 4 goals and 2 assists in 6 games for them.

Gerrard’s Aston Villa invested £9 million on Trezeguet, and could earn it from his sale. Next up is Frederic Guilbert who is appeasing Strasbourg on loan. The right-back has made 28 appearances for Strasbourg and provided 4 assists. His Villa contract expires in 2023, but could be offloaded this summer. Moreover, Matty Cash has established himself as an undisputed starter at Villa, further pushing Guilbert out.

Gerrard’s Aston Villa needs cash flow and these sales could help him with the same. Meanwhile, Guilbert and Trezeguet’s scintillating form can help the cause as well. Aston Villa have risen up from a relegation threatened side to a mid-table club. Gerrard would definitely be backed if they are to dream for European football.
