Aston Villa Line Up Move for German International Midfielder

Villa Park side keen on young Schalke star.

Check-In to Barcelona v Real Madrid

According to Italian source CalcioMercato believe that Aston Villa are planning a move for Schalke midfielder Lewis Holtby, who could be set to leave his Bundesliga side as he is in the final year of his current contract.

The 22 year old German international spent a good couple of years forcing his way into Gelsenkirchen based side’s first team picture, spending time out on loan at both Bochum and Mainz but is now considered a bright young Bundesliga talent but if no deal is forthcoming then Villa Park boss Paul Lambert could be able to pick up the midfielder ‘on the cheap’ in January.

Lambert could well do with some extra quality in his Aston Villa squad after a disappointing start to the Premier League campaign and a move to England may tempt the Schalke who’s father is from Liverpool, a fact that has in the past led to speculation about a move to Everton.
