Palermo's Bacinovic wanted by Villa

Palermo midfielder Armin Bacinovic has emerged as a serious transfer target for Aston Villa according to his agent.

The 22-year old Slovenian international is struggling for game time with the Rosanero and his representative, Amir Ruznic, says that both Villa and Chievo are showing considerable interest.

"Everything is still open at the moment. Aston Villa are really serious, but as are Chievo," Ruznic told Zurnal24.

"I really thought that by the weekend, everything would be sorted, but I have a feeling that we might just have to wait until the very last few days of the transfer window.

"It's a fact that Armin would like to stay with his current club Palermo, but only if he could play regular first-team football.

"President Maurizio Zamparini has a high opinion of him, but we'll see what talks with other clubs will eventually bring to us."
