Aston Villa is reportedly targeting a winger in January.

According to the Birmingham Mail, Aston Villa is expected to be "quiet" during the transfer window in January, with a winger signing the most likely move.

Villa was busy over the summer and brought 12 signings in a shopping spree for boss Dean Smith after being promoted from the championship.

Some of them have impressed, including Matt Targett, Tyrone Mings, Bjorn Engels, Tom Heaton, Marvelous Nakamba and Douglas Luiz, while there has been lightning from Wesley and Trezeguet.

Due to the 12 recent signing deals, Villa is reportedly planning a quiet January transfer window, which is not a big surprise.

However, it should be noted that Villa is likely to hire a new winger, with Smith possibly looking for more quality to guarantee his team's Premier League status.

Jack Grealish has recently impressed on the left, but he may be even better centrally, and Smith's current broad options are less than convincing.

Trezeguet and Anwar El Ghazi were a bit hot and cold, while Jota has shown little in the Premier League, making another winger for Villa Sinn.

It's particularly interesting as Sky Sports recently reported that Villa is interested in two exciting, creative wingers in Brentford's Said Benraham and Norwich City's Emiliano Buendia.

Norwich Buendia is unlikely to sell in January, especially to a direct rival, and since Benrahma has a history with Smith from Brentford, it is likely that he will most likely sign.
