In order to sustain Villa’s Premier League title push, Unai Emery has indicated that the owners are prepared to make investments during the January transfer window.
However, the head coach also emphasised that Villa needs to run their team “intelligently and smart,” with a few marginal players perhaps leaving to raise money.
Emery is only interested in bringing in players who can strengthen the team, therefore players like Bertrand Traore and Calum Chambers are among those who could depart.
Since purchasing Villa in 2018, its owners, Nassef Sawiris and Wes Edens, have made almost £500 million in investments.
Emery stated: “The club owners have a lot of ambition and excitement.” They are taking pleasure in our activities. We must possess intelligence and wisdom.
“We need to handle some changes and work to strengthen certain areas, but we have very excellent players in the squad. We will be extremely picky because it is difficult to make improvements or changes.
“We have the ability to take action. If we can persuade them, the owners would be willing to sign some players. We’re also attempting to figure out how to handle some players quitting the team.
“We are going to analyse each situation with the players we have in the squad and with the players we can maybe get.”
