Aston Villa to prioritise signing of former Manchester United and Chelsea target

Aston Villa are interested in Villareal defender Pau Torres, who was linked to Manchester United last summer.

Newly appointed Villa manager Unai Emery is looking to buy into his former club during the upcoming transfer windows as he has his sights set on coveted centre-back Torres.

Emery coached Torres and his former team to a Europa League trophy as well as the Champions League semi-final. Torres attracted interest from top clubs across Europe over the summer, but ultimately opted to stay in Spain.

The manager has since opted to return to the Premier League after leaving Arsenal in 2019 as Steven Gerrard’s successor at Villa.

Emery has a lot of work to do with the Midlands side as they are currently 16th in the league table and have only picked up three wins so far this season.
