GdS jumping on the Kozak reports

Paolo Bruno

It seems Libor Kozák to Aston Villa is a rumor that's gaining steam. Too bad it still makes very little sense.

Gazzetta dello Sport, one of Italy's all calcio all the time periodicals, is now jumping in to talk about the possibility of Libor Kozák joining up with Aston Villa. The pink paper is careful to caution, however, that there's nothing official yet regarding the Lazio striker.

The fee is rumored to be somewhere around €6m / £5m, which makes this move even odder. Aston Villa aren't in desperate need of a forward. They don't like to spend more than, say, £2m. Kozák has been rather a flop in Serie A, and can't do much of anything with the ball at his feet. He's also a whopping 24 years old.

But who knows, maybe Paul Lambert and the Villa scouting department has seen something beyond, a little lingering talent hiding in the Czech. Either that, or they spotted his performances in the Europa League last season and totally ignored his time on the bench in Serie A. Whatever it is, let's remember this dude would not be brought in as a replacement for Christian Benteke, but rather a member of the ever-increasing rotating strike force at Villa Park.

Or, again, this might just be Sky Italy making things up. Let's cross our fingers for that last one and hope Lambert and Co. can find a defender that's not quite so susceptible to head injury.
