According to The Mirror (print edition, page 48, June 19, 2019), Bristol City are interested in signing Scott Hogan from Aston Villa.

It has been reported that Championship club City are ready to make a move for the 27-year-old striker in the summer transfer window.

The report has also claimed that the Republic of Ireland international, who can also operate as a winger, can leave on a free.

According to The Mirror (Transfer Live blog, 22:27, June 18, 2019), Villa have told Hogan that he can leave on a free transfer this summer.

Leaving Aston Villa

Hogan joined Villa from Brentford in January 2017 for a transfer fee reported by BBC Sport to be worth £12 million.

The 27-year-old striker has struggled to make a huge impact during his time at Villa Park so far, and spent the second half of the past season on loan at Sheffield United.

With Villa having been promoted to the Premier League for the 2019-20 campaign, Dean Smith’s side could do better than Hogan.
