Aston Villa are considering a move for veteran French striker David Trezeguet, according to the Daily Mail.
The former Juventus striker, 33, is a free agent after leaving Hercules and is believed to be chasing a two year contract on a weekly salary of £28,000 after tax.
Villas boss Alex McLeish wants to add more experience to his squad, as well as another centre- forward, but he could face competition for Trezeguet from newly promoted Swansea.
Former World Cup winner, who played 71 times for France, scoring 34 goals, saw a move back to Italy with Napoli breakdown last month and he is now understood to be mulling over a switch to the Premier League.
The Frenchman’s agent, Antonio Caliendo, claims Villa made an approach two weeks ago and talks are ongoing, but Nice and Terek Grozny are also keen.
Meanwhile, McLeish is considering a move to bring former Villan Thomas Hitzlsperger back to the Midlands, having left West Ham following their relegation.
