Aston Villa have finalised a deal to sign La Liga and Valencia midfielder, Carles Gil for a fee said to be around £3.2m according to BBC Sport.

According to reports, Lambert is said to be a big fan of the attacking midfielder and if the deal goes through accordingly, then the Spaniard could start against Liverpool on Saturday.

With just 11 goals in 21 games all season, Villa are in need of creativity, something that Gil has in abundance. After seeing his side defeated against Leicester City last weekend, the former Norwich City boss said, “We need a bit more creativity, that’s the only thing that is lacking from us.”

Gil comes under high recommendation from BBC pundit, Pat Murphy, “Gil arrives with the reputation of a player who can go past opposition players swiftly in the area where Villa are blatantly deficient – the final third of the field.”

Will Gil help be the man to help Villa find their goalscoring form?
