Monaco are the latest club to show interest in Aston Villa’s unsettled midfielder Stephen Ireland.
The 24-year-old is keen on a move to either Liverpool or Everton and has been the subject of interest from Stoke and Fulham.
Villa want to recoup around £6million for him. (Daily Mail)
Gerard Houllier does not appear to feel that Stephen Ireland has an Aston Villa future and many clubs are interested in the Irish playmaker but perhaps a move to Monaco would suit the extravagant lifestyle of the former Man City star?
The 24 year old has started just six Premier League matches this season and even though the Midlands side are clearly struggling Ireland fails to get much of a look in. It is worth remembering that not more than a couple of seasons ago the attack minded midfielder was considered one of the bright stars of the Premier League.
If indeed Aston Villa only want £6m for his services then that is something of a bargain that surely many clubs in the Premier League would be well worth cashing in on?
