According to the Daily Mail, Aston Villa could still have five more signings to make this summer.

Villa have already spent big upon promotion, with Dean Smith bolstering his squad considerably.

However, it seems that Villa are far from done in the transfer window yet.

 

The Mail claims that Smith wants another five new signings before the campaign starts, with Villa prepared to invest further funds into their squad.

Villa are looking to sign Bjorn Engels to complete their centre-back line-up, with Tyrone Mings and Ezri Konsa already arriving this summer.

The claret and blues also want a new goalkeeper, two midfielders and another winger according to the report.

Smith has shown a ruthless approach since promotion, with Villa's starting line-up on the first day of the new season potentially looking very different to the one which featured in the play off final.

The Midlands side have shown great ambition, and if Smith’s completes his transfer plan, there will surely be confidence around Villa that they can comfortably avoid the drop next term.
