Boss Dean Smith is also keen on Ollie Watkins and Said Benrahma from his old club Brentford.

But he first wants to find out if Edouard can be snatched from the Scottish champions after bagging 28 goals last season.

Arsenal may drop out of the race to leave the door open for the Midlanders.

Crystal Palace and Leicester are also in the hunt.

Edouard has not shown any sign of being interested in a move to a ‘lesser’ English club but Villa have cash to tempt him with a major contract.

Their financial power is also giving them a chance in the Watkins and Benrahma races.

Meanwhile Blackburn are snapping up young Hoops striker Connor McBride.

Scotland youth cap McBride, 19, thinks he will have a better chance of progress in England.
