Aston Villa: Potential January transfer targets

Assani Lukimya-Mulongoti
Another defender Villa are reportedly interested in signing is Congo international Assani Lukimya-Mulongoti, who plays for German second division side Fortuna Dusseldorf. He told Sky Sports: 'My dream is to one day play in the Premier League. I am flattered by the link with Aston Villa as they are a great club.'

Languishing in mid-table and looking over the shoulders at the relegation zone, it's clear that Alex McLeish's side could do with some investment over the next month.

Their defence would benefit from some reinforcement but the area most in need of improvement is midfield. Creative outlets Ashley Young and Stewart Downing both left the club last summer and have been sorely missed, and creating chances and scoring goals have been a big problem for Villa this season.

Here, we round-up the players who have been linked with a possible move to Aston Villa.
