We first reported on rumours of Eberechi Eze’s links to Villa last month, but the chase for the QPR midfielder’s signature now appears to be hotting up.
After a £12 million bid was rejected by QPR from Crystal Palace, Smith face’s competition for the promising 22 year old midfielder.
Recently promoted sides Leeds, West Brom and Fulham are also reported to by the local press as admirers, with Eze anticipated to command a fee in the region of £16 million.

Villa’s pursuit of French striker Odsonne Edouard continues with the Celtic man now believed to be subject to a £30 million transfer valuation from Dean Smith.
Edouard is hot property not just from Villa’s perspective, with the 22 year old courting interest from a host of top European sides. However, Villa have a significant war-chest, the lure of Premier League football as well as the prospect of genuine regular first team action to offer.
However, a news report from north of the border suggests that Celtic are unwilling to sell their star striker, with Edouard also holding out for a move to a ‘bigger’ club.
Dean Smith will be under signficant pressure to add to Villa’s impotent strike-force, with Davis and Samatta goal-shy and Brazilian Wesley yet to return from a long term knee injury.

Sorry – Eze’s fee starts at £20 million. Please don’t delude yourselves otherwise. he’s worth more!
I cannot help feeling that whoever opened their big mouth and said we were planning to spend £100m has stupidly cost us dearly. Most of the players we are looking at have had a price increase of millions. None of them are proven in the Prem which is a massive step up from the Championship and the Scottish Premier League but here we are being quoted well over the odds for unproven players. Yes we have really shot ourselves in the foot quoting £100m for sure.
Dont you worry son you have absolutely zero chance of getting edward for 30mil . And yes he.s unproven in the biggest over hyped league on the planet. But he is proven in the big league champions league . And europa league .also he won’t be going to no relagation battle club so rest at ease bud
Mickey Mouse league player will be desperate to get to a competitive league.Everyone outside of Joke land know how crap the league is.
Yes its that crap man City were lucky to draw with us twice . And we sold prob the best defender on the planet to Southampton. Not forgetting the countless players your tinpot league have stolen from the crap league you have a player there jyst now prob your player of year cone from the tin pit league u buffon
If celtic and rangers went to the Premier ship they would be a top 6 team straight away and would be in a position to sign anyone.
Sadly we wont be and need to operate the way we do buying young and developing.
which we are incredibly good at.
We would both smash villa without any of the Premier league cash as we are bigger clubs with better players.
this is fact!
