Aston Villa and Southampton are battling for the signature of Mathieu Flamini, according to reports.

Southampton and Aston Villa will reportedly fight it out to sign AC Milan midfielder Mathieu Flamini in the summer.

The former Arsenal man is a free agent at the end of the season and is thought to be considering his options having rarely featured for the Serie A outfit this year.

The Frenchman's tenure at the San Siro has been plagued by injuries, and he is now considering a return to the Premier League, according to ClubCall.

Saints boss Mauricio Pochettino is supposedly keen on bringing in the 29-year-old, in order to add some experience to his largely young midfield.

Villa boss Paul Lambert is also monitoring Flamini's situation, but it is expected that the player would reject a move to Villa Park should they get relegated this campaign.

Flamini made over 150 appearances for the Gunners during a four-year spell before heading out to Italy.
