Dean Smith is thought to be keen on adding to his Aston Villa squad this winter as they look to bolster their chances of challenging for Premier League football next season.
One name that has been mentioned is Darius Olaru, who is an exciting prospect to come out of Romania.
The 20-year-old is a striker who has been turning out for Gaz Metan this season and Aston Villa are thought to be keen on bringing him to the club in the future.
Speaking to Gazeta Sporturilor, the player’s agent, Arcadie Zaporojanu, revealed the Championship outfit were interested, but they wanted to know as much information about Olaru before making an official offer for him.
“I was in England,” he told the media outlet.
“I gave Aston Villa a few references about him, figures and everything they needed. So far they have not made an official offer to Gaz Metan.
“They want to get as much information, see matches with him and make a clear idea.”
If Villa do want to bring him to the club, they may not be able to wait too long with Borussia Dortmund also thought to hold an interest.
Olaru is considered to be a bright prospect and has attracted the likes of Dortmund with his ability.
The 20-year-old is a versatile forward and can play anywhere across the front line – something Aston Villa could certainly benefit from.
However, with no official offer on the table yet, it remains to be seen if they do have enough information to make one for him.
