Villa told Boussoufa price

Aston Villa have been told to pay up if they want to sign Mbark Boussoufa from Belgian club Anderlecht.

The 25-year-old Morocco midfielder is reported to have been lined up as a potential replacement for James Milner at Villa Park.

Manchester City and Chelsea are both interest in signing the England international this summer.

However, with Villa possibly banking more than £25million from the potential sale of Milner, Anderlecht are looking to be compensated fully for last season's Belgian player of the year Boussoufa.

"Boussoufa can go if a team offers what we want," revealed general manager Herman Van Holsbeeck."He was a key player and therefore he can only go if a club does what we ask.

"We will not make concessions."
