‘He has more appeal than Arteta’, ‘a top company’ – Fans hail Steven Gerrard as Aston Villa secure another commendable signing


Fans took to social media to praise Steven Gerrard after Aston Villa confirmed the signing of Diego Carlos from Sevilla.

The Villans have announced that they have reached an agreement with Sevilla for the transfer of Carlos. Gerrard’s side have paid the La Liga club £26million for the centre-back, according to The Daily Telegraph.

According to Aston Villa’s official website, the 29-year-old will travel to England in the next few hours to undergo a medical and finalize personal terms. He will put pen to paper on a three-year contract with the Birmingham outfit, according to Pedro Almeida.

Villa have already made Philippe Coutinho’s loan from Barcelona permanent for £17m ahead of the summer. They also confirmed the signing of Boubacar Kamara from Olympique Marseille on a free transfer on Monday.

Carlos is now on course to become the club’s third major signing from Birmingham this summer. With the transfer window yet to officially open, fans have been impressed with Villa’s activities so far.

Some supporters have now taken to Twitter to praise Gerrard for his ability to attract top players to the club. Here are some of the best reactions to Villa signing Carlos:

A fan wrote on Twitter:

“Boubacar Kamara and Diego Carlos represent a top quality company for AVFC. Gerrard is quick to respond to the team’s needs with European class players. However, this raises expectations for him, other than a top ten finish. next season will be a failure.”

Boubacar Kamara and Diego Carlos represent a high quality company for #AVFC. Gerrard responds quickly to the team’s needs with European-class players. However, it raises expectations for him anything other than a top ten next season will be a miss.

Aston Villa have made signings like Coutinho and Diego Carlos and now they’re even linked with Suarez. This Gerrard effect, he has more sweater than Arteta 🤐

Gerrard does good business from the start. Coutinho and Diego Carlos for less than £50m and Kamara for free.#avfc are one striker away from competing next season for a place in Europe. twitter.com/charduncker/st…

It is worth noting that the Villans finished 14th in the Premier League table in 2021-22. The Liverpool legend’s presence at the club appears to be helping attract top players ahead of the summer transfer window.


Could Luis Suarez be in line for reunion with Gerrard at Aston Villa?

Supporters feel Aston Villa are one scorer away from seriously competing for a European spot next season. It’s been suggested that Luis Suarez could be the player to fill that void.

The 35-year-old sees his contract with Atletico Madrid expire next month. Aston Villa are said to be among clubs interested in acquiring his services on a free transfer ahead of the 2022-23 season.

It has been claimed that Suarez is seriously considering a reunion with Gerrard at Villa Park. However, it remains to be seen if such a decision will materialize this summer.
