The Marseille ace Maxime Lopez is reportedly the subject of interest from Aston Villa.
The 22-year-old attacking midfielder has established himself as an integral part of the squad, contributing five goals in 132 appearances for the Ligue 1 outfit across all competitions.
However, with just over a year left to run on his contract at the Stade Velodrome, there is inevitably interest from other elite clubs across Europe.
According to reports in Spain, Aston Villa are contemplating whether to launch a bid for the Frenchman, who could be available in the region of £10m.
Tottenham Hotspur and Sevilla are also said to be monitoring the situation ahead of a possible bid during the summer.
