Aston Villa turn to Bournemouth striker King

Aston Villa are looking to attempt another Bournemouth raid.

The Premier League side attempted to sign Callum Wilson, but he left the Cherries for Newcastle United instead.

Now the Daily Mail reports Villa are going to go after Joshua King.

Manager Dean Smith is very eager to sign a striker, and Norway's King is now one of his targets.

He managed nine goals last term.

Villa are also interested in Ollie Watkins from Brentford, along with Liverpool's Rhian Brewster.

But they may only sign one of those players.
