Aston Villa are chasing a Chelsea winger - additionally, one of their transfer targets is ‘aware’ of the interest being shown in him.

The transfer window is just a few short days away from slamming shut on January 31. What business will Aston Villa look to conduct in the short time remaining?

One former Arsenal player that Aston Villa have been linked with in recent weeks has acknowledged the Villans interest in him. At £30 million, however, he will not come cheap - will Emery take the risk?

Elsewhere, Villa are also thought to be in pursuit of a winger who currently plays for Chelsea. He was also at the World Cup, where his nation reached the semi-finals - he played a huge part in their impressive Qatar campaign.

Matteo Guendouzi ‘aware’ of interest

Matteo Guendouzi has been in Aston Villa’s sights for a considerable period of time now. The Frenchman said he is aware of Villa’s interest him - meanwhile, his parent club (Marseille) are awaiting Villa’s next move (per Fabrizio Romano talking to GiveMeSport).

Fabrizio Romano said on the potential move: “At the moment, from Marseille, they are still waiting for the official bid. They know about the interest; the player is aware of the interest of Unai Emery but still no official bid.”

Villa in the race to sigh Hakim Ziyech

Chelsea and Morocco World Cup star Hakim Ziyech is an Aston Villa transfer target, according to Kavel Solkehol on Sky Sports. They’re not the only club who are thought to be interested - Everton and Newcastle are also reportedly in the hunt.

Additionally, Roma and AC Milan have been linked with the 29, though they may not have the finances to complete a deal. To add to this, Newcastle’s interest was registered before they snapped up Anthony Gordon - therefore, it would be a surprise to see them sign another a winger.
