According to Bristol Live, Aston Villa and Norwich City have lodged interest in signing Eddie Nketiah on loan for the rest of the season.
Bristol City were thought to be leading the race to snap up the England under-21 international but news of interest from Premier League clubs could scupper that.
Villa and Norwich, both newly-promoted, could do with more firepower. The Canaries, overly-reliant on top-scorer Teemu Pukki, have only found the net 22 times this campaign.
Villa meanwhile have an injury crisis in attack after Brazilian Wesley was ruled out for the season with an ACL injury. In Wednesday’s night’s EFL Cup semi-final first leg with Leicester, Dean Smith opted to field three midfielders up front.
Mikel Arteta admitted yesterday that the Gunners are chewing over several offers for Nketiah who was recalled from his spell at Leeds because he wasn’t getting enough game time. Championships sides Sheffield Wednesday and Nottingham Forest have also made contact.
