Villa will also get an English youngster, Samuel Iliang-Junior. Samuel Iliang-junior used to be a Chelsea academy product before joining the Juventus youth set-up in 2020. The 20-year-old made 36 appearances for Juventus u19 in the 21/22 season before moving to the senior squad. Last season, the Englishmen appeared 27 times for the old lady, scored one goal, and registered two goals in all competitions. Villa believes that Samuel will add some extra options on the left side.

Back in March, Villa published its finances for the 2022-23 season and confirmed a massive loss of around 120M. The club is committed to long-term and sustainable future development.
