The Villans have enjoyed a successful off-season in terms of transfer business, with Roberto Di Matteo having kept hold of a number of his better players while adding the likes of Ross McCormack and Mile Jedinak to his ranks.
Although the aforementioned Scot is part of a decent attacking set-up at Villa Park that includes Jordan Ayew and Rudy Gestede, the Birmingham side remain keen to add another marksman to their ranks, and reports claim Wells is wanted.
The nine-cap Burmuda international, who has netted once in Championship action already this season, has developed a reputation as one of the Football League’s most dangerous goalscorers over the course of the past few years, enjoying a prolific spell with Bradford before notching 28 in his least two league campaigns at Hudderfield.
Wells is famed for his desire play on the shoulder of the last defender, with his fierce pace and clinical edge standout traits.
Villa drew 1-1 with Huddersfield on Tuesday.
