According to reports on DHNET, Aston Villa are sending a scout to watch Anderlecht striker Lukasz Teodorczyk in action against FSV Mainz in the Europa League on Thursday night.
Well, the Polish attacker has caught the attention of a number of clubs after impressing during a loan spell from Dynamo Kyiv this season, scoring 13 goals in 18 appearances in all competitions for the Belgian outfit.
The 25-year-old also has a good record at international level, netting three times in just nine caps for his country.
Apparently, Villa, along with their Midlands rivals West Brom, will take a closer look at the 25-year-old on Thursday, while Premier League sides Everton, West Ham and Sunderland are all also expected to send scouts to the game.
This is where it gets a bit complicated. It seems as though Anderlecht will make the loan move permanent for a fee of around €3m, before selling him on for €13m (about £11.5m).
It’s hard to say. Despite having the firepower of the likes of Jordan Ayew, Ross McCormack, Rudy Gestede and Jonathan Kodjia at their disposal, they have struggled to score goals this season – just 15 in 15 Championship matches.
A new striker like Teodorczyk could help that situation, but you also feel that the quartet mentioned above are likely to come good sooner rather than later, especially with the turn in form the club has shown since Steve Bruce took the reins last month.
