Aston Villa boss Dean Smith is said to be keen on a number of attacking targets, as they look to improve their forward line.

According to Sky Sports, Aston Villa are interested in Jean Kevin Augustin as Dean Smith eyes up one more striker.

Villa are interested in the £15 million Red Bull Leipzig forward, as they look to complete their summer spend.

Villa are also being strongly linked with Said Benrahma, as reported by the Daily Express.

 

If Benrahma and Augustin do arrive then Villa could have one of the quickest attacks in the Premier League.

Smith’s side have already brought in Mahmoud Trezeguet, who is one of the fastest players in world football.

And if they were to partner him with Augustin and Benrahma they would have a trio of forwards who could really put defences on the back foot.

Villa are likely to come up against teams who play high lines against them, as they will often be the underdogs in their first season back in the top tier, and Smith seems to be putting together a team who could be a major threat on the counter.
