Aston Villa are amongst a trio of Premier League clubs chasing Vladimir Jovovic, according to TalkSPORT.
The Claret and Blue reportedly see Jovovic as an addition who could enhance their squad, but face competition from Queens Park Rangers and Crystal Palace for the 20-year-old.
Jovovic is currently playing for Montenegrin side FK Sutjeska Niksic, but his talents have not gone unnoticed in recent times and he looks a player ready to make the step up.
With his contract expiring in the summer, he also represents a bargain buy, and competition is expected to hot up for his signature before the end of the window.
An attacking midfielder, famed for his passing ability, Jovovic has played 77 times for Sutjeska Niksic during his career already and he looks one of the finest talents Montenegro has produced in some time.
The prospect already has five senior international caps and there is a great amount of excitement in his homeland around his future.
The fact that Villa are being linked with him suggests that Paul Lambert really is focusing on increasing his side's attack this window and that is sure to please fans of the Midlands outfit.
Villa supporters are already excited about the talent of Carles Gil, who signed for them earlier this month, and to bring in another creative influence could only be considered a good thing for a side who have struggled so badly for goals this campaign.
