Montpellier President Louis Nicollin has claimed that Aston Villa are one of around 5 teams who are bidding for Younes Belhanda according to Sky Sports.

The Moroccan International has said he would like to move to either the Premier League or the Bundesliga and it appears Aston Villa are in the race to sign the highly rated midfielder.

Rumours suggest that both Arsenal and Tottenham are interested in Belhanda’s signature but Nicollin has said that Villa are the only club to have submitted a bid from the Premier League.

Nicollin confirmed that the midfielder is leaving Montpellier and then said, “There are four or five clubs that have come in. It is now down to the player to choose now because we are almost in agreement with the clubs”.

When asked who the clubs that have bid, Nicollin confirmed that they were AC Milan, Inter Milan, Athletico Madrid, Galatasaray and Aston Villa.

With Nicollin confirming that Belhanda is going to leave the French club this summer, more clubs will become aware of his availability and are likely to enter into the bidding process.

Aston Villa are currently trying to persuade striker Christen Benteke to stay at the club.

Benteke has been linked with many clubs throughout the Premier League and Europe including Liverpool.
