Aston Villa line up Pogba brother to replace departing star

With all the speculation linking Juventus star Paul Pogba with a return to England this summer, nobody has noticed that another Pogba could be on his way, too.

The Daily Express claims that Premier League strugglers Aston Villa are believed to be lining up a summer swoop for Paul’s brother, Florentin, in a bid to replace Ron Vlaar, should he decide not to sign an extended deal to stay in the West Midlands.

The 24-year-old currently features for Ligue 1 side St Etienne, and has caught manager Tim Sherwood’s eye, who is already weighing up new recruits to bolster his defence in the wake of Vlaar’s uncertain future.

With the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea and Manchester City all vying for Paul’s signature, the two brother’s could be lining up against each other next season if both deals end up going through.

A Guinean international, Florentin Pogba has made 16 appearances for Les Verts this season, scoring once.
