Aston Villa tied up their first signing of the summer on Wednesday by securing Birmingham City playmaker Jota – and now they're being linked with more additions.
Villa need reinforcements to boost Dean Smith's squad having returned to the Premier League, and Blackburn Rovers ace Bradley Dack is allegedly on the radar.
The Sun report that Smith is a big fan of Dack, and will rival Brighton and Hove Albion for his signature this summer, in what would be an expensive move.
Dack, 25, hit 18 goals for Rovers this past season, emerging as one of the most talented attacking midfielders in the Championship.
Villa may now look to sign the former Gillingham man, despite already having the likes of Jack Grealish and John McGinn in forward-thinking midfield spots.
Now, Villa fans are taking to Twitter to react to the rumour, and many don't want Dack at all, believing that Villa need better if they're to challenge in the Premier League.
Many are worried at the number of Championship players being linked with Villa, showing their concern at the apparent transfer plan to go for second-tier players rather than those with major Premier League experience – and it seems that Dack is a player Villa fans would rather avoid.
More championship players. Need to be linked with some more high profile players soon— casey (@caseybeck___) June 5, 2019
We need to be looking at premier league standard players, being linked to too many championship players.— David Hynes (@hynesy1888) June 6, 2019

We are going to need a couple of proven PL players.— LH.24 (@LH___24) June 5, 2019
We’re linked to a lot of decent players but assuming they will all do a job stepping up from the Championship or coming in from abroad is too risky
