Dean Smith can solve Aston Villa's glaring issue with this January signing

Asia's Tech News Daily

Kortney Hause and Axel Tuanzebe have both featured for Aston Villa this season and have produced whilst doing so.

However, there is no guarantee that both of these players will be at the club next season.

Tuanzebe is currently in his third loan spell at the club and having signed a new contract at Manchester United before departing on loan, a permanent move isn’t certain in summer. Hause may also depart given the fact his current contract is due to expire at the end of the season.

If the hierarchy at Aston Villa do wish to strengthen in this area, they may look to acquire the services of Burnley’s James Tarkowski.

Tarkowski has been linked with a move away previously with Newcastle United’s new owners said to be interested in signing the England international. His current deal expires at the end of this season and if Villa did want to make a move, they could do so in January.

Burnley rejected several bids from West Ham United and Leicester City in the summer believed to be in the region of £30 million but given his contract situation this price tag may dwindle down in the next transfer window.

Sean Dyche’s side currently sit 18 th in the Premier League and there is a genuine threat of relegation this season. Speaking to the Telegraph last year, Tarkowski stated: “Burnley offered me a contract near the start of last season, which, for me personally, it was nowhere near what I was going to sign, and I think the club understood.

“They’ve come back again this year, and still, for me, it’s just not right. Finances do matter, but, at this particular stage, whatever path I take I will financially rewarded, so the financial side is not even my thinking at the moment. It’s more about my football.”

Tarkowksi has been capped by England twice and it is clear he is a player of a high degree. He has currently won 38 aerial duels in the league with a success rate of 70.4%. This is an improvement on Tyrone Mings’ 56.5% and Ezri Konsa’s 64.4%, so it is clear that Tarkowski would provide an aerial presence which may be missing if Hause leaves.

Villa have conceded three late goals from set pieces against Wolverhampton Wanderers and Arsenal’s opener was also from a corner. Tarkowski’s aerial presence could be extremely useful in solidifying the Villa defence from these areas.

He ranks in the top two percent of defenders across Europe’s top five leagues for aerial duels won whilst also adding almost seven clearances, two blocks and two tackles on average per game. He would strengthen the Villa defence which in recent weeks has been less than solid when challenged.

With Burnley under threat of relegation and the player making it clear he will decide against signing a new contract, it could be the perfect opportunity for the Villa owners to offer him a package both financially and in terms of football that would attract him into making a move.

Villa are looking to push on and challenge for European places in the coming years. Signing Tarkowski who is entering his prime as a defender, could be a vital to piece to the puzzle.
