PSV Eindhoven have asked Aston Villa for information on striker Wesley Moraes ahead of a possible swoop.
The Lowdown: Wesley’s Villa Park struggles
It’s safe to say Wesley hasn’t exactly made the impact he would’ve hoped after joining from Club Brugge in 2019 for £22.5m.
He scored just six goals in 22 appearances before suffering a serious injury against Burnley on New Year’s Day 2020.
The Brazilian missed the rest of the 2020/21 season and the majority of the current campaign, making three brief substitute appearances in recent weeks.
The Latest: Source shares update
According to Football Insider, who have been informed by a Dutch source, PSV have made an enquiry and are looking at a year-long loan.
The Dutch heavyweights, who have two European Cup triumphs in their history, want to be sure Wesley is over his injury issues before committing to a possible deal.

The Verdict: A good move for all involved?
Should guaranteed game time be offered by PSV, we feel as if a temporary move to the Netherlands would be good for Wesley.
It would give him the chance to get back to his best in a competitive league, while also possibly playing Champions League football.
PSV will be getting a forward capable of scoring plenty of goals, with Wesley netting 17 times in Belgium in the 2018/19 campaign prior to his move to the Midlands.
Rivals Ajax have scored 28 more goals than PSV this season, so the acquisition of Wesley could help them table a stronger challenge next season.
As for Villa, should things go well, they would then be getting a forward back full of confidence for the 2022/23 season, which may prove to be a shrewd move by Villa officials.
