Steven Gerrard, in office since mid-November, is said to be busy working for his new team. As the photo reports, the Liverpool legend wants to guide a VfB Stuttgart player to Aston Villa.
As a result, Gerrard targets left-back Borna Sosa. According to the report, he “would rather” sign the Croatia international during the winter break.
The former midfielder is also ready to dip into his pocket. Gerrard is expected to offer the Swabians € 30m for Sosa.
The money the VfB probably needs. Due to the corona pandemic, Stuttgart recorded losses of 80 million euros.
Sosa, whose flanks are feared in the Bundesliga, still has a contract until 2025. In 2018, he moved from Dinamo Zagreb to VfB for six million euros, just a fifth of Aston Villa’s alleged offer. .
FC Bayern have also been linked with Sosa. In February this year, Sport Bild reported that the defense attorney’s name had been mentioned internally when searching for a potential successor for David Alaba. Instead, Omar Richards came from Reading FC.
