What would Winks bring that we don’t already get from Luiz?

Numbers from FBRef.com. All per 90.

Pass comp rate

Winks: 72 passes, 89.1% completion
Luiz: 44.6 passes, 82.7%

Short passes

Winks: 28.6, 92.6%
Luiz: 14.9, 87.8%

Medium passes

Winks: 30.1, 92.5%
Luiz: 18.4, 87.3%

Long passes

Winks: 11.4, 77.1%
Luiz: 9.87, 71.1%

Essentially, Winks is a better passer, while Luiz's numbers have shown to be he's better carrying the ball. Defensively their numbers are similar, though Doug's a bit more active pressing the ball and tackling. Still, in possession, with players like Buendia, Bailey and (fingers crossed) Jack, we have plenty of forwards who can carry the ball and dribble. It's possible Dean would see Winks as a better fit than Doug because of his passing ability to get those guys the ball better than Dougie does.

A £25m defender, Milenkovic is most certainly not.  I'd barely have him ahead of Hause, let alone Konsa or Mings.

Going to have to disagree with you here, mate. Milenkovic was Fiorentina's best defender by far last season and at times it felt like he was the only one who knew what he was doing back there. This chart from FBRef.com shows how his performances last season compared to centerbacks from the top five leagues.

This is a very, very low bar to clear.  He's bang average, and those stats need to be looked at in the context of being part of a long-standing Beppeball side that treats possession of the ball like herpes.

He's hyped off the back of coming through at a young age and being built like a brick shithouse.  Has the benefit of time on his side, sure, but he is absolutely miles away from the quality of our starting back-line.

Good signing for them. Feel like a year from now we could've been looking at upgrading CB and he'd be a great option but probably too early for us to buy someone that isn't a backup to our current.

Good price too.

I think Villa should do an all purple third strip sometime.

Pereira received a life changing offer 3 weeks ago and is now saying "Thanks but lemme go" to WBA.

Wonder where he's off to 🤔 Apparently he's maybe going to Al Hilal in the Saudi league. Would explain why we looked at him and decided against persuing as is making his motivations very clear.

Gif: Mikkel Damsgaard STUNNING free-kick goal vs England! | Witty Futty

It was initially reported that the Scandinavian would cost €25m. That then increased to €30m and now it seems any suitor will need to part with €35m. And it appears Villa are prepared to do that.ClubDoria46 (via Sport Witness) are reporting that Sampdoria are expecting a ‘maxi offer’ from the West Midlanders. The report adds that the offer has been written down and they have ‘sealed the envelope’. All that remains is for club officials to deliver it to the Genoa-based outfit. They say the Italians see Damsgaard’s exit as a ‘necessary sacrifice’, with money tight at the club.

Tough to call Damsgaard. He looked great at the Euros but his numbers in the league don't look promising. I'll concede to those who have seen more of him but £35m is a lot for somebody with 2 goals and 4 assists last season.
