We’ve already been linked with Aleksander Tonev and today we appear to have an interest in Kuban Krasnodar striker Ivelin Popov.

Novinite carry quotes from the player who says that Aston Villa are ‘seriously interested’ in him, but a deal is nowhere near being done.

‘These things are usually decided on August 31. I suppose I will be in for a difficult summer, I hope everything will be fine, eventually.’

Tellingly the 25 year old forward referencing our links with Tonev adding:

‘As far as I know, the negotiations between Aston Villa and Lech Poznam are in a more advanced stage. I hope we get together with Sasho in England.’

The outlet also says that Polish media suggest 23 year old Tonev would ‘almost certainly’ welcome a move to Villa if a deal can be done, which they say would be in the region of £2.5million.

Can’t say I particularly know anything about either player, but at least when it comes to reports on Tonev he comes with a recommendation from Stan and you’d expect if there is truth to the Popov link, then Lambert would’ve again tapped up our new coach for information on his compatriot.
