Espanyol youngster Thievy Bifouma is attracting Premier League interest.

The Express & Star says Aston Villa, along with Stoke City, are among a number of side linked with France Under-21 international Bifouma, who Espanyol may be prepared to let leave this summer due to their financial concerns.

Bifouma has spent this season on loan at Spanish Segunda Division side Las Palmas, scoring 13 times to help his side into the final play-off place.
