Gregg Evans has been speaking on the latest edition of the 1874 Aston Villa podcast by The Athletic, and he has been talking all things Aston Villa.
One of the topics that came up was Ollie Watkins, and it is clear that Evans is a big fan of the man signed from Brentford for £28m, potentially rising to £33m.
It seems as if Evans is a big fan of Watkins and believes that his teammates are enjoying playing with the 24-year-old, and The Athletic reporter is confident that he will score a lot of goals for the club.
He said: “I think Villa are really onto something with him, I think he’s the real deal, I think that he is going to score a lot of goals for the club.
“I think his teammates are really enjoying playing alongside him because he’s creating space for them, he’s helping them flourish.
“Villa have spent a lot of money on him, but I think over the years he will prove to be good value for money.”
