Rodrigo Bentancur Set to Join Top EPL Side

English Premier League side Aston Villa have approached Juventus in a bid to sign Rodrigo Bentancur as manager Steven Gerrard makes another ambitious move to strengthen his squad. The 24-year-old Uruguay midfielder joined the Italian side from Boca Juniors in 2017 and has won three Serie A titles with them.

Aston set to Sign Rodrigo Bentancur from Juve

Aston Villa has signed Philippe Coutinho on loan from Barcelona and paid Everton £25m for France defender Lucas Digne in this January transfer window. Interest in Brighton’s Yves Bissouma was not encouraged by the Seagulls, and so the former Liverpool player who is now the head coach of Villa wants to use Rodrigo Bentancur as the replacement.

Steven Gerrard, however, still wants to boost his midfield resources and talks with Italian giants Juventus will continue this week. Villa has also added to their goalkeeping back-up this month by signing Sweden’s Robin Olsen on loan from AS Roma, having spent time on loan at Sheffield United, this after a similar spell at Everton.
