Aston Villa are keeping tabs on FC Zurich defender Philippe Koch.

FC Zurich's Swiss Under-21 international, who is also being watched by Italians Lazio and Holland's Ajax, could be available for around £2m, says the Mirror.

Koch, 20, said recently: "It would be a dream to play in England. I've had good references from Senderos and Djourou and I'd like the chance."
