The Aston Villa player who would benefit the most from Sinclair signing

Aston Villa's reported move for Scott Sinclair could be good news from Carles Gil.

Aston Villa's possible move for Scott Sinclair could be another signal that the club are doing all they can to get the best out of Carles Gil.

Gil moved to the Midlands outfit earlier in the month and few signings in recent times have created as much excitement as the Spaniard has around Villa Park. 

The attacking midfielder has the potential to provide Villa with exactly what has been missing from their game and Paul Lambert appears to already be building his side around the 23-year-old. 

Gil has already shown his creativity, poise and guile in a claret and blue shirt and by bringing in Sinclair, which the Daily Mirror predict will happen in the near future, things should only improve for him.

Sinclair may not have played a lot of football of late, but his blistering pace remains his most notable asset and that will not have deteriorated from sitting on the substitutes' bench. 

It means that his arrival will see Villa complete an attacking force which will be amongst the quickest in the division. 

Andreas Weimann and Gabriel Agbonlahor are already at the club and the duo are amongst the most rapid players in the Premier League

Sinclair would only add to this threat and, if Lambert can find a way of playing all three of them together, then their pace should scare teams into not pressing too high for fear of getting caught on the counter. 

This, in turn, will create more space for Gil and that should be something that he will thrive off. 

The worry with Gil was that he would struggle to cope with the physicality of English football, but with more space to work in his technical ability should come to the fore. 

Gil has the ability to rectify many faults in this Villa squad and Lambert's transfer strategy suggests he is doing everything he can to give his new signing the best chance of reaching his top level.
