Aston Villa linked with move for Mouhamed Belkheir

Dean Smith is thought to be using the January transfer window as his chance to make a mark on the Aston Villa squad.

The manager has already added a new goalkeeper to the side with the addition of Lovre Kalinic, however, it appears he has set his sights on an attacker.

According to a report by Foot Mercato, the Championship outfit are thought to be monitoring Brescia’s Mouhamed Belkheir.


The 20-year-old, who is a former Inter Milan player, only joined the Serie B outfit in the summer but he has struggled to make the breakthrough there as well.

The Villans are thought to hold an interest in the Algerian, however, they could face plenty of competition to try and land him.

Caen, Amiens and Strasbourg are all credited with being keen on bringing the player back to the country of his birth.

The Verdict:

With the future of Tammy Abraham thought to be in doubt, a move for Belkheir could be smart a decision.

Aston Villa do not currently have too many options when it comes to their front line and the 20-year-old could be tempted to try his luck in England.

But he could be a risk too big for the Midlands outfit to take as he has struggled to make an impact over the last few years.

However, with interest thought to be high for the Algerian, it remains to be seen if the Championship outfit look to make a move for him.
