Aston Villa could finalise Brentford striker Ollie Watkins deal in coming weeks

Aston Villa are reportedly on the verge of securing a deal for Brentford striker Ollie Watkins after his side signed Peterborough's Ivan Toney as a replacement.

Brentford lost to Fulham in the Championship playoffs final which resulted in losing out on Premier League promotion and that means Watkins would be eager to make the move to topflight.

The 24-year-old registered 26 goals and three assists in 50 appearances across all competitions last season and this would be the best time to challenge himself in the big leagues.

Villa alongside Watkins are also targeting Said Benrahma and Rico Henry before the close of the transfer window on October 5.

Reports claim that Villa and Watkins' representative could finalise a deal in the coming weeks and it's just a matter of time.
