out of the box, Steven Gerrard’s side need to strengthen their centre-back position before the transfer window closes on Thursday. According by UFABET

Southampton are on loan for Bednarek until the end of the season and there may also be an option to buy. And also looking for more options.

Aston Villa signed Diego Carlos, Boubacar Kamara, and Ludwig Augustinsson earlier in the summer transfer window. They also signed former loanees Philippe Coutinho and Robin Olsen permanently. However, things have been rather quiet until the last week or so.

But Aston Villa have now been forced into the market for another central defender. With marquee summer signing Diego Carlos undergoing surgery on an Achilles injury he sustained against Everton last week. The Brazilian international has been ruled out for a long time. And will not return to action until next year at the earliest.

They now have more chances of grabbing a 26-year-old defender than West Ham. United and Leicester City are also interested.

Villa are optimistic they can close a deal for Bednarek, but are still in talks with Southampton later this weekend.
