Aston Villa announced last night that Unai Emery will become the club’s next permanent manager from November following the recent departure of Steven Gerrard.

Following on from this announcement, it appears as though some behind-the-scenes details have emerged regarding what could happen at Villa Park in the next few months.

According to a recent report from the Daily Mail, Villa’s owners, Wes Edens and Nassef Sawiris, will financially back Emery to spend money in the upcoming January transfer window to bring new players to the club.

During his tenure at Arsenal, Emery won 43 of the 78 games he had in charge of the north London club, which included taking them to the 2018/19 Europa League final.

After leaving the Gunners, the 50-year-old then took charge of Villarreal, where he ended up winning 66 of the 130 games he had at the helm, in addition to taking the Spanish club to last season’s Champions League semi-final.

Bearing in mind how Villa have not been shy when it has come to spending money in the transfer market across previous summer and winter windows, this should fill a lot of Villa supporters with confidence that the same thing will happen again this time around.

Also, with Emery bringing in the likes of William Saliba and Gabriel Martinelli to Arsenal during his time there, who have now become vital figures for the Gunners this season, this should also excite a lot of Villa fans with his eye for spotting impressive players.

Having also given Bukayo Saka his Premier League debut for Arsenal back in 2019, this would also suggest that some of Villa’s young players may get the chance to break into the first team under Emery and potentially become star players for the team like the Gunners winger has.

Moving forward, if the Spaniard can have a strong start to his spell with Villa, this should put the club in a good position to make some impressive additions to their ranks by the time January rolls around.
