According to this morning’s edition of L’Équipe, AS Monaco striker Anthony Martial is Premier League side Aston Villa’s priority with Christian Benteke set to join Liverpool.
3 weeks ago the Villains made their first contacts with Anthony Martial’s entourage, an approach that led to nothing, as the player proceeded with a contract extension with AS Monaco instead.
At the beginning of this week however, Aston Villa have come again with another approach. Anthony Martial’s entourage refused to comment on this speculation when approached about the matter, but it is very difficult to see Anthony Martial joining a side that was struggling in the Premier League last season, especially as he rejected the chance to make the most of an admittedly unsatisfactory offer from Tottenham at the start of the window. Aston Villa & Martial? Not likely to be a match.
