According to Romano, On the deadline day, Aston Villa reportedly made contact with Lucas Moura.
On deadline day, Johan Lange and Two in NSWE were busy adding two more players for Steven Gerrard.
Leander Dendoncker, a defensive midfielder, joined for £13.5 million from Wolves, and later that day, Southampton loanee Jan Bednarek, a centre defender, joined as well. That brought Villa’s summer signings to seven players for a total of £63 million, but it appears that the team wanted more.
If Moura’s status doesn’t change by January, it could be worthwhile for Villa to renew their late-summer interest. The lone attacking addition to the team throughout the summer was Philippe Coutinho, after Villa sold Trezeguet, Anwar El-Ghazi, and loaning out Bertrand Traore. [Transfermarkt].

Considering that Moura can play on either the flank or as a second striker, you’d like to assume that there is place for the player Raphinha, another international colleague, has termed a “monster.”
It may be a smart decision because he has a tonne of English experience (204 appearances for Spurs), a perfect 5-game winning streak versus Aston Villa, and he may be reasonably priced.
