Villa Park side keen on Metalist forward.
Aston Villa are reportedly interested in young Brazilian forward Taison according to Italian source CalcioMercato.
The former Internacional forward is into his third season at Metalist Kharkiv and the adaptable 24 year old has seemingly attracted growing attention with his recent displays.
Taison can play in a number of attacking roles and perhaps this adaptability appeals to Paul Lambert who could certainly do with adding to his squad in January.
This source states that Metalist value Taison at €10m (£8m) and that may be a fee that Randy Lerner is willing to shell out if Lambert convinces the American of the player’s worth to his Villa Park squad.
Aston Villa have scored just ten goals in 11 Premier League games this season and could therefore certainly do with some added creativity in the final third.
