According to Sevilla ABC, Aston Villa had a bid rejected for Angers midfielder Baptiste Santamaria back in January.

Their €10 million for Santamaria was deemed less by the French outfit, thereby putting a halt into their pursuits of the defensive midfielder.

However, with Santamaria continuing to earn rave reviews in France for his consistent displays, the Villans should once again revive their interests in the 25-year-old ahead of the next season.

If you are one of the punters in football betting, we suggest to go ahead and place a bid on Santamaria succeeding at Aston Villa, if the move does go through. Such is the player’s reputation at his current club.

His excellent consistency over the last three seasons has seen him being linked to not just Villa but to a number of other clubs in England, Spain, and Italy. He has been vital to his side’s better performance this season as they sit 10th in the league table.

Meanwhile, it has been a disastrous campaign for Smith’s Villans, who earned their promotion just last year. However, the club is currently fighting for its place in the top-flight and faces a possible relegation threat.

Having said that, Santamaria seems to be a perfect fit at Villa Park and could help Smith bolster his squad. Moreover, Villa just have one defensive midfielder ion Marvelous Nakamba.

Verdict

Villa clearly have a dearth of quality defensive midfielders and Santamaria will be an apt fit, given they manage to stay in the top-flight. Hence, Villa reviving interests in their former target would be a wise choice if they wish to better their performances next season.
