The France international spent much of this past season on the side-lines nursing a long-term injury, yet before he suffered his setback he showed great ability in the English top flight.
Amavi is quick, intelligent both in and out of possession and boasts Premier League qualities. As a result Villa will struggle to keep hold of him and the option is there to sell him for a probable eight-figure sum.
According to a fresh report in the Mirror, the Swans are happy to sell Taylor this summer as they believe the younger Stephen Kingsley had what it takes to replace him while being in the market for a new left-back.
Taylor is a steady Premier League full-back, making 33 starts for Swansea this past season yet he could struggle to find himself another top flight club with so few in need of bringing in another left-back.
The 27-year-old may find his only choice is to drop down a division, and Villa represent a fine option as the club have already illustrated ambition in regards to making an immediate return to the Premier League.
Taylor, a Wales international, would no doubt be a top player in the Championship and Villa could potentially get him at a fraction of what they may receive from a likely Jordan Amavi sale this summer.
