Aston Villa star linked with Serie A giants

Aston Villa's Andreas Weimann

Andreas Weimann could be on his way out of Villa Park in the summer, with Italian giants Inter Milan tracking the player.

The Austrian has been one of Villa’s best players this season, scoring 11 goals in the club’s fight for survival. His impressive displays haven’t gone unnoticed either, with reports of Inter Milan scouting the 21-year-old.

Weimann’s agent, Robert Groener, said no formal inquiry had been made, but didn’t rule out a potential move, according to Sky Sports.

Speaking to Interlive.it, Groener said: “At the moment there is nothing concrete. I have not had any contact with Marco Branca or any other Inter director.”

“His contract with Villa expires in 2014, so if they do not renew then he could be sold over the summer. Obviously Serie A is less prestigious than the Premier League, but it would be an honour for Weimann to wear the jersey of a historic and prestigious club like Inter.”

Villa’s victory over QPR last weekend may be the decisive match that sees them avoid relegation this season. But with more competitive teams eyeing the Austrian, it would be difficult for Weimann to turn down deals from higher clubs.

Villa’s next game is at home to Liverpool after the international break, where the club are continuing to try avoid relegation.
