Transfer News: Aston Villa eye Lincoln City’s Bruno Andrade

Aston Villa News: Aston Villa are interested in Lincoln City forward Bruno Andrade (h/t Lincolnshire Live)

The Portuguese forward is also wanted by Portsmouth and tied with the League Two club until 2020.

Andrade’s great season at League Two

The 25-year-old has fared well for Lincoln City this season, racking up 10 goal and 6 assists in more than 40 appearances.

He played a huge role behind the Imps to win the League this season, thereby achieving promotion to League 1.

A youth product of Queens Park Rangers, Andrade rose to prominence during his spell with the National League side Boreham Wood, where he bagged 38 goals.

How Andrade could fit In Villa?

The Lions are on the cusp of playing in England’s top-tier next season as they are set to face Derby County in the Play-offs final.

Tammy Abraham, the on-loan-Chelsea striker has been influential behind Villa’s successful run this season, with a record 26-goal haul.

And the club is yet to decide on Abraham’s future, as the 22-year-old is due to return to the Premier League this summer. Meanwhile, Jonathan Kodjia, Villa’s other reliable option endured an injury-laden season, eventually casting doubts on his future.

Given that, the Lions can benefit from Andrade keeping Premier league in the prospect. Traditionally being a centre-forward, the Portuguese man can also play at the wings, making him a perfect fit for Dean Smith.
