The Brentford ace would be a useful signing for either Aston Villa or Sheffield Wednesday.

Both Aston Villa and Sheffield Wednesday are believed to be in the market for a striker this month, as Steve Bruce and Jos Luhukay look to bolster their attacking ranks before the transfer window slams shut.

With this in mind, both clubs should consider a move for Brentford hitman Lasse Vibe, who has been on a fine run of form of late.

He has scored seven goals in his last eight Championship outings for the Bees, and he would undoubtedly offer either Villa or Wednesday something different in forward areas.

The Denmark international is a lively forward, and is well renowned for his willingness to make tireless runs into the channels. Whilst he is not the most clinical of finishers, he seems to have developed another string to his bow in recent weeks, finding the back of the net on a regular basis.

Bruce will be desperate to bring another established forward to Villa Park, with both Jonathan Kodjia and Gabby Agbonlahor out injured.

He has had to rely on Keinan Davis too often this season, and his youthful inexperience has begun to show of late.

Luhukay, meanwhile, will be looking to add some potency to his front-line, with the Owls' tally of 30 Championship goals scored being the sixth worst in the division.

According to TransferMarkt, Vibe is valued at £2.25 million, and with his contract at Griffin Park set to expire in the summer, both Villa and Wednesday could pick themselves up a bargain if they move for him over the course of the next five days.
