Aston Villa want to sign new right back, as sources have revealed their keen interest in Kyle Walker-Peters, as stated by TEAMtalk.
Unai Emery has unquestionably accomplished impressive performances ever since taking on the managerial role at Villa. Under his guidance, the team has made a remarkable leap from a mediocre mid-table standing to emerging contenders in European competitions. At the time of Emery’s appointment, the Birmingham-based club was struggling in the 16th spot. However, a remarkable series of performances, has propelled them to their current position. With their eyes firmly fixed on European qualification, Villa’s owners, Nassef Sawiris and Wes Edens, are now ready to invest substantial financial resources to fuel Emery’s aspirations. Regardless of their ultimate league placement this season, these ambitious owners firmly believe that a productive summer transfer window could position Villa as genuine contenders for the much-coveted Champions League spots in the 2023/24 campaign.
Emery has singled out the right-back position as a key area requiring reinforcement, with his primary target being none other than Kyle Walker-Peters.

Having made appearances in 91 matches for Southampton, Walker-Peters has made notable contributions to their cause, tallying two goals. Unfortunately, Villa’s current preferred choice, Matty Cash, has encountered a string of injury setbacks since his return from the World Cup. Consequently, the team has heavily relied on the services of 37-year-old Ashley Young during Cash’s absence. Although Young has performed admirably, Emery acknowledges that long-term reliance on him is not a sustainable option.
Reliable sources close to the situation have confirmed to TEAMtalk that Villa is ready to make a move for Walker-Peters, who is likely to become available for transfer during the upcoming summer window due to Southampton’s relegation from the Premier League. Villa’s active pursuit of this twice-capped England international serves as a testament to their unwavering commitment to fortifying their squad ahead of the approaching season, firmly cementing their ambitions for future triumphs.
