Aston Villa transfer rumours December 2020; Dean Smith interested in two wingers

Aston Villa transfer rumours; Mandzukic denied a free transfer
Aston Villa were supposedly after Croatian striker Mario Mandzukic a month ago. The villains wanted to bring the 2018 FIFA World Cup finalist to Villa Park on a free transfer, but the 34-year-old said no to the transfer. This is according to Fabrizio Romano, who claims that the ex-Juventus man denied the opportunity to join Dean Smith’s Villa as well as Bologna in Italy. He now plays for Qatari club Al-Duhail.
However, the club is not doing too badly with ex-Brentford striker Ollie Watkins firing on all cylinders. However, a player like Madnzukic would have shared the goal-scoring load from the young striker and brought world-class pedigree at the club.
Aston Villa after two wingers
Aston Villa are said to be interested in 27-year-old French winger Florian Thauvin as he enters into the final months of his contracts with French club Marseille. Thauvin would offer quality competition to the Villa frontline and may even be the starting right-winger if he joins in January.
Villa are also said to be interested in Kosovo winger Milot Rashica and are tipped to make a bid in January for the 24-year-old Werder Bremen winger.
