Czech it out - Aston Villa rumored to have signed another forward

Claudio Villa

According to reports in the Italian media, Libor Kozák is headed for Birmingham. Proceed with caution.

Take this rumor with a grain of salt, considering the source(s);

Of course, most Aston Villa fans have never heard of Libor Kozák, but all things considered, if he really has signed for the club, he's a bit of a deviation from Paul Lambert's norm. After all, he plays for one of the bigger clubs in Serie A, although not as a regular starter, and he's hit advanced age, having turned 24 in May.

The Czech forward has been with Lazio since 2008, spending one season with Serie B side Brescia. He's spent the majority of his career coming off the bench, and last season, under new biancocelesti coach Vladimir Petković, was no different, with Kozák getting just five league starts but making 14 substitute appearances. He was, however, Lazio's star in Europa League play, with eight starts, three appearances from the bench, and ten goals.

Yeah, you read that right, ten goals, including a hat trick against Stuttgart. So he'd be a perfect signing if Villa were playing in Europe this season.

Oh, those were the days.
