Aston Villa fans are against the idea of going for Charlie Austin.
But most claret and blues fans think that they should be looking elsewhere.
While Austin has previously been a goalscorer at Premier League level, Villa supporters feel his time has come and gone, and they should be looking at younger targets.
No thanks. He didn’t want us last year, we don’t want him now— Patch (@garypatchett) June 6, 2019
How does he fit into the young hungry and improvable category? He is 29— Tonyp (@tonyp3462) June 6, 2019
No too injury prone— Nigel Underwood (@Nigel5626) June 6, 2019
No didn't he turn us down before— DAVFC D (@DavidDavfc) June 6, 2019
He is injured more than he plays so no— Ollie (@ollie0707) June 6, 2019
Best days behind. Would have taken him five years ago.— Joe Thoma (@joe_thoma_iv) June 6, 2019
Would have before not now— Cameron McKenzie (@cameron_av) June 6, 2019
Smith is on record as saying he wants to reduce the average age of Villa’s squad, but he is likely to want some Premier League experience this summer too.
The Villans are known to be trying to find a number nine, as Smith wants to create an attack capable of causing top tier defences problems.
Villa had Tammy Abraham leading the line for them last season, but he has now returned from his loan spell to Chelsea.
