Villa Park side look to bring in Mali international.
Aston Villa are reportedly closing in on the capture of Wolves attacker Bacary Sako according to the Daily Mirror.
The 26 year old French born Mali international is said to be a West Brom target but has seemingly set his sights on a move to Villa Park, with the former Saint-Etiene man out of contract in the summer.
Wolves harbour hopes of making the Championship play-offs but should Kenny Jackett’s side fail to gain promotion to the Premier League one imagines Sako will make his own way to the English top tier.
Things look all together rosier at Aston Villa since the appointment of Tim Sherwood as a replacement for Paul Lambert, the former Tottenham boss having helped the club to their first FA Cup final since 2000 whilst a run of three wins from their last six Premier League fixtures have eased the club’s relegation concerns.
Sako is into his third season at Molineux and is the club’s top scorer with 14 goals.
