Aston have been pleading with the club to not sign Britt Assombalonga in the January transfer window. 

This comes after fan Twitter account @villareport shared a post on their page relaying information originally shared by the Northern Echo that are “set to step up their interest” in the Middlesbrough striker.

Should sign Britt Assombalonga this month?

Yes

Yes

No

No

This post then gathered a lot of replies from fans who were not pleased with this latest transfer rumour.

Here’s a sample of fans not wanting Assombalonga to sign this month:

The 27-year-old, who is currently valued at £9 million according to TransferMarkt, has made 21 appearances for the Championship club so far this season. In those appearances, Assombalonga has only managed to score six goals and make two assists (per TransferMarkt).

Now that a rumour has emerged that are looking to bring the striker to Villa Park this month, some Villa fans have taken to Twitter to share their disappointment.

What do we think?

Given Assombalonga’s less than average goal-scoring record so far this season, it’s clear why some fans don’t think he will be the answer to help the club out in the absence of first-choice striker Wesley.
