Aston Villa eyeing West Brom midfielder Matheus Pereira

West Brom midfielder Matheus Pereira is on the radar of local rivals Aston Villa.

The Athletic reports the 24-year-old has enjoyed an impressive season with nine goals and four assists for the beleaguered Baggies and clubs are expected to move for him this summer.

Villa boss Dean Smith watched Pereira cause his team all manner of problems in Sunday's 2-2 draw at Villa Park, a game which saw the Brazilian net from the penalty spot.

And it's emerged that Villa are keeping a close eye on Pereira's situation ahead of the summer market.
