The 29 year old has proven a massive success since leaving Chelsea to join Turkish side Besiktas, netting 18 goals in all competitions thus far, and Villa Park boss Paul Lambert would do well to lure the Senegal international to help boost his misfiring attack.
Aston Villa have scored just 11 goals in 22 Premier League fixtures, failing to net in any of their last five top tier encounters, and as such could well do with a strong goal-scoring option to help keep the club clear of the relegation zone.
Ba is a proven Premier League marksman having scored regularly for both West Ham and Newcastle United before moving to Stamford Bridge.
