We round up all the transfer news involving Aston Villa...
According to The Sun, West Ham United are willing to rival Everton in the chase for Aston Villa’s Idrissa Gueye.
Everton had activated Gueye’s release clause and the midfielder looked set to move to Goodison Park.
However, West Ham have made a last ditch effort to sign the Villa star, which could dent Ronald Koeman’s hopes of landing him.
According to the Express, Aston Villa are preparing a bid for Liverpool’s Luis Alberto.
The Spaniard has become a forgotten man at Anfield, and he looks certain to leave.
With Villa looking to add a forward to their ranks, they have reportedly seen Alberto as a good option and could submit a £6 million bid in the near future.
Scott Sinclair continues to interest Celtic, with Brendan Rodgers’ side now submitting their fifth bid for the attacker (Daily Record).
Celtic have made an offer worth £3 million for Sinclair, but Villa are said to be holding out for more.
