Villa Park star wanted by La Liga giants.
Barcelona are keen to snap up Aston Villa winger Ashley Young this summer. The Nou Camp side are ready to enter the race for the England international and are likely to tempt the 24 year old wide man and interest from the Champions League holders may well make it very hard for Martin O’Neill to keep the player from having his head turned.
Young has been in fantastic form this season and whilst he has tried to distance himself from the increasing speculation about his Villa Park future he must surely be considering his options and will surely be hoping to secure Champions League football, something he will more than likely miss out on this season.
The former Watford man may also feel that his hopes of securing a regular starting role in the England set-up would be given a hefty boost by a move away from Aston Villa. Teammates James Milner and Gabriel Agbonlahor are also attracting a great deal of interest from Man United and Arsenal respectively and if O’Neill finds himself losing any of his prized assets then it could spark others to leave.
