Revealed: The two positions Aston Villa boss Steven Gerrard is ready to ‘spend big’ on in January

 

An insight into the plans of new Aston Villa boss Steven Gerrard when it comes to the January transfer window has, on Friday, been provided.

Up and running

The Gerrard era at Villa Park was of course kicked into full swing this past weekend.

After a dismal opening to the campaign culminated in Dean Smith being dismissed early in the month, those in a position of power at the club swooped decisively to lure the ex-Liverpool midfielder away from Scottish champions Rangers.

Gerrard, in turn, oversaw his first outing in the Claret and Blue’s dugout last Saturday afternoon.

And what a start it proved for the Englishman.

On the back of a testing 90 minutes against high-flying Brighton, Villa ultimately emerged on the right side of a 2-0 scoreline, owing to strikes from both Ollie Watkins and Tyrone Mings.

Gerrard eyeing reinforcements

As alluded to above, though, evidently, Stevie G is far from ready to rest on his laurels.

This comes with an insight into the plans of the tactician when it comes to the winter transfer window having today been provided online.

The info comes courtesy of Football Insider, who have confirmed that Gerrard has set his sights on reinforcing two key areas of his squad ahead of the 2nd-half of the Premier League campaign.

The positions in question? Central defence and central midfield.

The board at Villa Park, in turn, are ready to provide their full backing to Gerrard’s plans, ahead of a predicted ‘big money’ January outlay.
