Bristol City snapping up this £12m Aston Villa star would be nothing but a coup and Johnson must do this

Bristol City opinion – Robins in for Scott Hogan – good move?

According to a report in Bristol Post, Aston Villa striker Scott Hogan is a transfer target for fellow Championship side Bristol City. The Robins are looking to make several additions in the summer window.

They also have Middlesbrough’s Britt Assombalonga and Arsenal’s Eddie Nketiah on their radar (h/t Bristol Post).

Manager Lee Johnson is setting his sights on signing Hogan, who hasn’t starred at Villa and is currently out on loan at Sheffield United (h/t Bristol Post).

The Villans could sanction a permanent exit for the 26-year-old, who arrived at Villa Park from Brentford in January 2017 for a fee around

Here’s why Bristol City would be right in signing Scott Hogan in the summer:

Hogan has the qualities to make a difference

Predominantly a striker, Scott Hogan is adept in playing on either wing and impact the game positively. Despite his low-key time at Aston Villa, the 26-year-old possesses the qualities to make a difference elsewhere.

Before arriving at Villa Park, the Republic of Ireland international scored 21 goals in 36 appearances for Brentford, which is more than decent. Since then, the return of 10 goals in 61 appearances at Villa paints a pale picture.

Hence, it is clear that the player is good enough to make a positive impact at Bristol City. He has the pace to make runs in behind a defence and stretch them. Furthermore, he can dribble past defenders in tight spaces to open up space for a shot or pass towards the goal.

All in all, Hogan is a type of striker who works hard for the team apart from scoring goals. If signed by the Robins, he could be the ideal man for Lee Johnson’s team, who require more substance up top.
