Aston Villa manager Steve Bruce is keen to bring in a striker this January, and supposedly has three targets on his hit list.

The Villains boss is eyeing swoops for Swansea youngster Oli McBurnie, Bournemouth's out-of-favour striker Lewis Grabban, and Leicester City outcast Leonardo Ulloa, who is the fans' pick.

Ulloa is way down in the pecking order at the King Power Stadium after trying to force through a move in each of the past two transfer windows.

Ulloa, famously played a huge role in Leicester's unlikely Premier League title triumph in 2016 with some crucial goals, but wanted out the following season after a lack of game time under Claudio Ranieri.

As reported by the Birmingham Mail, he is now being linked with Villa, and fans would welcome a move for him over the other targets.

The Argentine has plied his trade in the second tier of English football before in the colours of Brighton, and scored 23 goals in 50 games for the Seagulls.

It is likely that this statistic is encouraging fans to champion a move for him, but the club would only be able to bring him in on loan deal due to the restrictions of Financial Fair Play.
