Despite already bringing in ten new players to Villa Park this summer; Aston Villa still look lightweight up front if the Villans are to improve upon their disappointing campaign last season, where they staved off relegation by just three points.

Among those new acquisitions are Manchester City’s Scott Sinclair, Blackburn Rovers’ Rudy Gestede, Barcelona’s Adama Traore and Lorient’s Jordan Ayew; but manager Tim Sherwood could still do with bolstering his attacking options before the close of the transfer window.

One player that has been linked with a return to the Premier League is Gervinho. The former Arsenal striker scored a disappointing nine goals in 46 games for the Gunners during his two-year stay in the English top flight.

However, there is no doubting the Ivory Coast international’s ability, and he could prove to be an inspired buy if his manager shows confidence in him.
