Roma midfielder Ljajic in talks with Aston Villa

Aston Villa are understood to be interested in AS Roma's attacking midfielder Adem Ljajic.


The Daily Mail is reporting Villa commenced discussions about a potential deal for the 23-year-old.

Ljajic is contracted to Roma until 2017, but it is understood the Serie A club are keen to offload his wages.

Villa's current financial situation may limit their ability to buy the Serbian outright, with a loan deal the most likely scenario should Ljajic end up at the Premier League club.
