Italian media are linking Aston Villa to Danish 20-year old Frederik Sorenson. He currently plays for Bologna and is part-owned by Juventus. The centre-back has made 9 appearances this season and is no stranger to a change of formation. Like Paul Lambert, Bologna’s manager, Stefano Pioli enjoys changing formations with the young Dane having played right back, centre back, left back and in a 3 man defence; this is a very versatile player.
His young age makes him the perfect Paul Lambert recruit, however many speculate that during this transfer period Villa will focus on experience and spend their couple of quid on more experienced players.
Sorenson would be an excellent signing, he’s young, versatile and would come on the cheap. But this isn’t the saviour that Aston Villa have been looking for.
