Aston Villa are admirers of Nottingham Forest midfielder Joe Lolley, according to a recent report in The Sun.
Lolley, who joined Forest from Huddersfield Town in January 2018, has been in excellent form during the 2018-19 campaign.
Indeed, the 26-year-old has scored eight times and contributed eight assists in 35 appearances in all competitions for the east Midlands outfit.
The Sun have claimed that Villa see Lolley as a potential replacement for Jack Grealish, who could well leave the club at the end of the current season.
He has a contract with Forest until the end of the 2021-22 campaign, meaning that Villa will have to come up with a decent offer to sign the winger.
It would be fair to say that the Villa fans are in favour of the deal taking place, with many taking to social media to call on their club to sign Lolley, who played non-league football before joining Huddersfield Town in 2014.

Joe Lolley was always going to end up in claret & blue. Top player. Sort it out the Deano! #AVFC

Would have Joe Lolley at the Villa any day. Think he’s quality, and he’s a Villa fan aswell.

Makes you wonder where the Villa scouts were looking 4yr ago when Lolly was just down the road at Kiddy Harriers
