Aston Villa are the latest Premier League club searching for a new manager and it appears as though Steven Gerrard could be close to landing the job. The Rangers boss apparently tops the shortlist of CEO Christian Purslow and the big question is now whether he will leave Ibrox and take charge at Villa Park.

A number of betting sites are offering a Next Aston Villa Manager betting market and Steven Gerrard is currently trading at odds-on.

Gerrard Favourite to Swap Rangers for Villa

It is clear that Steven Gerrard will eventually manage in the Premier League and his dream job is probably taking charge of Liverpool FC further down the line. However, perhaps the Aston Villa role is a sizeable stepping stone when it comes to getting his hands on the big prize.

Gerrard cut his managerial teeth by ambitiously deciding to take the reins at Ibrox and he delivered the Scottish Premier League title to Rangers, with the scouser keen to win more silverware north of the border. However, it might be that the opportunity to replace Smith is too attractive to turn down.

Gerrard might even be able to leverage his Liverpool FC connection to get players on loan at Aston Villa should he take the role and there must be a reason why the bookies are linking the Liverpool legend with this job.

Hjulmand Could Swap Denmark for Villa

Aston Villa CEO Christian Purslow will be spreading the net far and wide in his search for a new manager and perhaps Kasper Hjulmand might express an interest. The 49-year-old has done an incredible job with the Danish national team and they are already qualified for the 2022 World Cup after an unblemished qualifying period.

On the flip side, Hjulmand doesn't have a wealth of club management experience and most of it has come at Danish club Nordsjaellend, with two spells being enjoyed. While the Dane did replace Thomas Tuchel at Mainz in the German Bundesliga, the results on the pitch were far from convincing.

Fonseca Among Favourites Once Again

No Premier League manager market is ever complete without Paulo Fonseca these days and perhaps the former Roma and Shakhtar Donetsk manager will throw his hat into the ring, having left the Stadio Olimpico at the end of the 2021-22 season. The 48-year-old had largely managed in his native Portugal before roles in Ukraine and Italy.

Fonseca was fairly successful during his two-year spell at Roma and his win rate was fairly impressive considering there were 53 victories in 102 games. He previously won three domestic titles with Shakhtar and could be a possible runner if his long-term ideas are welcomes at Villa Park.

Will Terry Make a Quick Return to Villa Park?

It wasn’t that long ago that John Terry decided to leave Aston Villa after a successful time as part of the coaching staff. The former Chelsea and England captain made the switch to Villa Park to finish his playing career and then stayed on to become part of Dean Smith’s backroom staff which included helping them land promotion.

Terry has been linked to a number of roles since hanging up his boots and the fact that he was previously on the Aston Villa payroll could work in his favour. Conversely, it could be a problem when it comes to a lack of experience of being in the hot seat and perhaps this is too big a job for a relative rookie.

Graham Potter Also Among Villa Favourites

Potter is highly regarded as a Premier League coach and Brighton have made a bright start to the season despite the Seagulls being low on wins in recent weeks. It is clear that he is well respected at the AMEX Stadium and has a lengthy contract at the club, with Albion recently drawing 2-2 at Anfield to demonstrate their worth.

Potter might not be particularly interested in a defection to Villa at this stage although the bookies are currently trading 7/1 about a manager who might regard the Birmingham club as slightly bigger than the one where he currently takes charge.

Frank Lampard Could Be Ready for Managerial Return

Along with Steven Gerrard and John Terry, Lampard is another ex-England player who is trading among the favourites to replace Dean Smith, with the former midfielder having the advantage of already coaching in the Premier League. Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich was happy to take a punt on Lampard when the club were under a transfer embargo.

While Lampard was eventually replaced by Thomas Tuchel, he did deliver Chelsea to a top four finish and Champions League football, with the coach having done so without being able to sign players and perhaps this represents a golden opportunity to return to the fold.
