Aston Villa are thought to be keen on adding to their midfield ranks this winter as they look to continue in their efforts to win promotion from the Championship.
Dean Smith has already added a goalkeeper to his squad, however, it appears he is now keen to address the concerns he has in the middle of the pitch.
Despite the Villans already having a number of midfield options, it is understood that a defensive-minded man could be on his radar.
And, according to reports in Spain, it appears that they are in talks about a possible deal.
The Ivory Coast international is thought to have a move to Villa Park amongst one of his favourites, however, there is plenty of interest for the 26-year-old and no concrete offer is on the table.
Doukoure could be an excellent addition for Aston Villa as they look to win promotion to the Premier League.
The Ivorian, who is valued at £900k by Transfermarkt, has plenty of experience and could be the ideal man to help Smith’s aims of bolstering his defensive midfield options.
However, with a number of clubs thought to be interested in the 26-year-old, Villa may need to move quickly.
