Barkley, who made 37 appearances and scored five goals for Luton last season, was unable to prevent the club from being relegated from the Premier League.

However, his performances caught the eye of Aston Villa manager Dean Smith, who had Barkley on loan during the 2020-21 campaign.

According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Barkley’s medical at Aston Villa is expected to take place soon, paving the way for the midfielder to join the club permanently.

With experience at clubs like Everton and Chelsea, Barkley’s addition to Villa’s squad will bring a wealth of top-flight experience and quality to the team.

Meanwhile, Aston Villa coach Unai Emery is focusing on strengthening his midfield for the upcoming Champions League campaign by targeting a new central midfielder this summer.

After finishing fourth in the Premier League, Aston Villa secured a spot in the Champions League for the first time since their European Cup win in 1982.

Despite a strong run in the Europa Conference League, Villa fell short in the semi-finals against Olympiakos with a 6-2 aggregate defeat.

With Ross Barkley on the radar to join Aston Villa, the England midfielder will help bolster the squad.
