Aston Villa have joined the battle for Toulouse midfielder Moussa Sissoko.
The Daily Star says Sissoko is on Aston Villaâ€™s January shopping list.
Villa boss Paul Lambert has vowed to add strength to his midfield this month and Sissoko fits the bill.
The 23-year-old could be available for as little as Â£3million, with the Ligue 1 club desperate to avoid losing him for nothing when his contract expires this summer.
He was previously a Villa target when Frenchman Gerard Houllier was in charge of the Midlands club.
