Aston Villa fans do not appear keen on the links with Bjorn Engels, which emerged yesterday.
Villa have already added Kortney Hause, Ezri Konsa and Tyrone Mings this summer, while James Chester is already at the club.
Engels is now said to be on Villa’s radar, but some claret and blues fans think that they are starting to sign too many centre-backs now.
Villa are buying so many defenders we’re in jeopardy of becoming the Kadashian’s of the premier league - Pleanty in the rear but nothin up top!— jimmy (@jmdubmix) July 11, 2019

How many defenders do we Frecking need ???— Gary field (@Garyfie07435003) July 11, 2019
Slightly worried now, not much premier league experience has been brought... I am sure we can finish 17th at worst...— Rob Hardy (@rphardy7_rob) July 11, 2019
Stop signing defenders, need a goalkeeper and a CAM.— Ellis (@e76170) July 11, 2019
If Engels does sign for Villa then Smith will surely have his complete set of centre-backs in place for the season ahead.
Villa are likely to play a system which only includes two central defenders next term, which means competition for places will be fierce.
Engels currently plays for Stade Reims in France, and he impressed in Ligue 1 last season.
