Talksport links Swansea forward Danny Graham with a move to Villa Park, but here’s the catch for 12 million! The 27-year old has often been found on the bench since the summer arrival of Michu. Aston Villa have scored 17 goals in 21 league matches and Paul Lambert maybe on the lookout for more firepower. This move maybe pressured due to Aston Villa’s current league position.
Aston Villa were linked with Robbie Keane earlier in the season but he has since signed a new contract at LA Galaxy and has decided to reject any loan offers. Graham is also being linked with a move to Reading and Sunderland but it’s believed (by TalkSport) that a 12 million bid will be enough for Swansea to let him go.
This isn’t necessarily a crazy story and it could’ve been believable. However with that staggering 12 million price tag I am shocked this made the site. That is the same amount of money Arsenal payed to get Podolski! Graham is not Podolski class, I rate him at 5 million max. But non-theless this is another transfer link and they are going to keep on coming especially since we are in a low League position, in need of reinforcements and Lambert’s made no transfers so far.
