Aston Villa have reportedly placed emphasis on signing Trabzonspor striker Daniel Sturridge in the January transfer window.
Villa boss Dean Smith is keen on to add the Englishman to his attacking ranks with Jonathan Kodjia having left the Midlands outfit in recent weeks.
According to Fanatik, Aston Villa have expressed an interest in Sturridge, who still has two-and-a-half years left on his contract.
After being released by Liverpool last summer, the 30-year-old joined the Turkish giants, where he has scored four goals in seven starts and four substitute outings.
The Claret and Blue are allegedly looking to seal a deal for £4.2m.
