Aston Villa is in contention to sign Joao Palhinha

Joao Palhinha’s transfer from Sporting CP to the Premier League has paid immediate dividends. Even more prestigious teams like Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur have taken notice of him thanks to his play. Football Insider reports that Aston Villa is confident in securing his services.

Fulham will not want to let Palhinha leave the club lightly because of his importance to the London club’s success. Aston Villa, though, can provide enough money to entice them. The player’s career would also improve with a transfer to the West Midlands club.

Under new manager Unai Emery, Aston Villa has been doing well and is in contention to make the Europa League. A transfer to Aston Villa would be a great opportunity for Palhinha to further his career and play at a higher level.

Villa should sign the Portuguese international because he would be a great complement to Douglas Luiz. His defensive coverage and aggressiveness will strengthen the Aston Villa midfield. The 27-year-old is among the league’s top players in successful tackles and has made more of them than any other Premier League midfielder so far this season.

Man United and Tottenham aren’t the only teams interested in Fulham midfielder Joao Palhinha; Aston Villa has also been linked to him

Palhinha would be a great addition to a Villa team that Emery hopes can compete for championships. United are also in the market for a quality backup for Brazilian international Casemiro. The Portuguese language is one of the possibilities considered.

Compared to Aston Villa, Manchester United is, without a doubt, the larger club. The midfielder may find it difficult to refuse an offer to play for them. But Tottenham Hotspur are also keeping an eye on the midfielder.

It seems like Palhinha may have too many options this summer; we’ll have to wait and see where he goes. Because of his contract status, Fulham is expected to seek a high price for him. He is under contract with the London team indefinitely. Whether or not Aston Villa is willing to pay through the nose for his services is unknown at this time.
