Benin striker Rudy Gestede could be set to swap Aston Villa for fierce midlands rivals West Bromwich Albion in the January transfer window.
Reports in the British media suggest that the 28-year-old will be the subject of a £7million bid from the Baggies, who are looking to strengthen their attack.
Gestede is firmly on the radar of Wets Brom manager Tony Pulis and although Villa have not expressed a desire to sell, it is expected that their rivals will push hard to land the player.
Gestede is also being monitored by Middlesbrough and Crystal Palace. The player joined Aston Villa in mid-2015 from Blackburn Rovers
