Aston Villa are ready to break their transfer record in adding striker Wesley Moraes from Club Brugge for $27 million.
Moraes is Villa's third signing as they prepare to compete in the Premier League.
“The potential of the football club is massive. It feels right that Villa are in the Premier League, the history and the size of the club, the fanbase that it has, I believe it is a Premier League club and that's not me being a supporter. We've got two owners [Nassef Sawiris and Wes Edens] who have got a lot of money, and are in it for the long haul," said manager Dean Smith.
