As talks continue with Valencia's Carles Gil and Manchester City's Scott Sinclair, Aston Villa fans may want to keep their eyes peeled for news concerning West Ham's Ravel Morrison.

Talksport has reported that Villa are interested in taking the talented midfielder from Sam Allerdyce's high-fliers. The fee is unknown, but it could be another cheap move considering that Allardyce doesnt seem to think the former Manchester United man is part of West Ham's future. Morrison is also out of contract at the end of the season, which will lower his fee considerably. Lazio may also be chasing Ravel.

Ravel Morrison seems to be an ideal replacement for Fabian Delph, who has been targeted by Liverpool to replace Steven Gerrard in case the Jordan Henderson experiment doesn't pan out. A concern about Morrison may be his attraction to trouble, but it seems to be a risk Lambert is willing to take to boost the attacking force of his side.
