Aston Villa trying to make shock bid for Pogba in January

Nothing has gone right for Aston Villa since their match day one victory over AFC Bournemouth. The Premier League mainstay’s only wins in all competitions have been a pair of close victories in the League Cup, only for the team to lose to Southampton in late October. However, fans hope that a busy January transfer window will enable them to somehow save some face – and Florentin Pogba could be the man for the task.

According to the Metro, the Villans have inquired to AS Saint-Etienne about Florentin Pogba – the older brother of Juventus megastar Paul Pogba – and are hoping to make an offer for the 25-year-old defender. Pogba has made 21 appearances for the Ligue 1 side since 2012 and has one goal.

Per the source, Norwich City, Newcastle United and Swansea City have all made inquiries about Pogba as well. However, Saint-Etienne are considered unlikely to part with him in January.

Aston Villa have eight points on the season and are seven points below 19th-placed Sunderland on the table – as well as 11 points away from Swansea City outside of the relegation zone.
