However, Villa manager Unai Emery is still looking to bolster the attack and has identified Henrique as a potential option. Henrique plays for Real Betis, and reports suggest he has a transfer fee of around £20 million. The 22-year-old Brazilian signed for Betis from Botafogo last summer, and has scored three goals, along with five assists in all competitions this season.

Villa’s recent run of form under Emery has seen them move clear of the bottom three, but they are still keen to strengthen their options further forward, as they are just three points adrift of sixth-placed Brighton.
