Aston Villa, Celtic line up for Chelsea target Victor Lindelof

Aston Villa and Celtic join in the race to secure the services of Chelsea target Victor Lindelof, according to reports from A Bola.

Lindelof's impressive performances for Benfica last season earned him interest from Premier League giants Chelsea this summer and the Blues are currently said to be continually monitoring the 22-year-old.

Chelsea are not the only team courting Lindelof though and it has now been claimed by reports in Portugal that both Villa and Celtic have also joined in the race to sign the Swedish centre-back.

Villa boss Roberto Di Matteo and Bhoys manager Brendan Rodgers are reportedly in the market for new defenders and Lindelof may be an affordable option despite the interest from Antonio Conte's Blues.
