English Premier League clubs ,Hull City and West Bromwich Albion, are said to be chasing Aston Villa forward Rudy Gestede.
According to The Sun, the Premier League duo will make a move for the Benin international in January with the Baggies set to submit an offer in the region of £6 million for his services.
Gestede, who moved to Villa from Blackburn Rovers last year, has scored three goals in seven English Championship starts this season.
The 28-year-old will add valuable competition up front with the club already boasting a few notable names up front in Hal Robson-Kanu, Saido Berahino and Salomon Rondon.
Moreover, Hull are reportedly open to offer Abel Hernandez to Villa in a proposed swap deal for Gestede, with the Uruguayan to link up with Steve Bruce at Villa Park.
