Nikola Kalinic: Aston Villa and West Ham battling for Fiorentina star

The rumor mill keeps turning and turning.

Now, reports link Fiorentina goal-getter Nikola Kalinic with Aston Villa and West Ham.

As reported by the Birmingham Mail:

“Aston Villa are keen to sign former Blackburn Rovers striker Nikola Kalinic, according to Corriere Dello Sport .

Kalinic now plays for Italian side Fiorentina and has scored 25 times since joining them in summer 2015, 13 of which have come in the first half of this season.

West Ham are also said to be keen on the striker, who scored against Spain at Euro 2016.

Should he move to either Villa or the Hammers, it would signal the start of his second spell in English football after a stint with Blackburn.

It is our understanding that a striker is not high on the list of priorities for Steve Bruce and a forward would probably have to be offloaded for another to arrive in the January window.”
