Ravel Morrison scores the fourth goal for Queens Park Rangers

Aston Villa are listed as the favourites with BetVictor to sign former Queens Park Rangers and Manchester United attacking midfielder Ravel Morrison this summer.

Villa are a fairly short priced 4/1 to sign Morrison this summer, with Everton and Swansea said to be their nearest rivals in the race for the midfielder.

There have been no suggestions that Morrison is on Roberto Di Matteo’s wishlist at Villa, but the odds are an intriguing development.

Morrison would be an eye catching addition for Villa, and would surely enhance the quality of their squad if they were able to complete a deal.

The 23-year-old is currently at Lazio, but his time in Italy appears to be coming to an end.

Morrison has barely played for Lazio since moving there in 2015, and needs to seal a switch for the good of his development.

There is no questioning Morrison’s talent, but his attitude has previously frustrated.

Morrison has represented the likes of Manchester United, West Ham United and QPR earlier in his career, but he is still yet to find a home for him to truly showcase his talent.
