Villa have locked their sights on another person who fits Paul Lambert's transfer scheme according to ClubCallThomas Toure of Bordeaux is reportedly a target for Aston Villa.

Having scored almost 20 goals in 81 games for Bordeaux's reserve side, Thomas has found his feet at the top level of French football scoring 2 in 12 from his position on the flank. Thomas would be a natural fit for Villa, who need a bit more creativity to feed Benteke or Kozak going forward. Thomas can also place a good shot from the wing as evidenced in the clip below.

God only knows that Villa need someone who can place a ball from the Wing. Someone with touch to complement the creativity of Gil and the power of Benteke. The fee shouldn't be too expensive either and he would come a lot cheaper than Scott Sinclair. Dortmund are also chasing the youngster, but hopefully the lure of Premier League football should be enough.
