Sandefjord’s Kosovan striker Flamur Kastrati is believed to be one of a selection of strikers Aston Villa boss Steve Bruce is considering signing in January.
Aston Villa are understood to be in the market for a striker in the mid-season transfer window.
The club has already been linked with proven Championship talent in Leonardo Ulloa, Nahki Wells and Danny Ings their newest link comes from further afield, playing his club football in Scandinavia.
While the 26-year-old journeyman striker is far from a household name, his form this season with Sandefjord suggests that he is of a quality perhaps higher than the Norweigan top flight outfit.
Kastrati has ten goals in 25 games this season in Norway’s 1. divisjon.
In contrast, Keinan Davis, Gabriel Agbonlahor and Scott Hogan have scored four times between them for Villa in the entirety of 2017.
Financial Fair Play restrictions mean Villa won’t be able to splash much cash in January and Kastrati’s position playing in a lower reputation league would make him a much cheaper option for the Midlands club.
