One of the lowest scoring sides in the Sky Bet Championship last term Aston Villa are seeking to boost their chances upfront with the acquisition of Greece striker Stefanos Athanasiadis, according to reports. The player is a shock target for the English side but Steve Bruce wants a top striker on the continent to help with their goalscoring woes.
Villa finished in the 13th spot last term but they remain hopeful for a playoff spot this time. The target has been impressive in Greek football, netting game after game for PAOK. The player is expected to join big money signings Jonathan Kodija and Scott Hogan as the team try to overhaul their poor results of last season.
