Villans keen on young American winger.
Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert is set to launch a move to bring young Bayern Munich starlet Julian Green to the club on a season long loan.
Fanatix understands that the Villa manager is keen to utilise his contacts in the Bundesliga to add a creative spark at the Midlands club after scoring just once in their three games this season.
Villa are said to be close to agreeing a deal to sign Tom Cleverley but the club are also keen to bring in another winger before monday’s transfer deadline.
Green has yet to make an appearance for Bayern’s first team, but his form for their second side were enough to earn him a call up to the USA national side for this summer’s World Cup.
He created a buzz around himself whilst in Brazil when he scored against Belgium in the second round with a goal reminiscent of former Villa star David Platt, who did the same thing at Italia 90.
Bayern are believed to be keen on allowing him out on loan for the season before putting him in contention for a starting spot next term, and Villa would be able to offer him regular first team football at a competitive level.
