The agent of Palermo midfielder Armin Bacinovic has claimed that Aston Villa are interested in a loan switch.
The 22-year-old Slovenian had drawn attention from Chelsea and Liverpool before he lost his place in the side.
"Everything is still open. Aston Villa are really serious, as are Chievo. We might have to wait until the last few days of the transfer window," said Amir Ruznic.
Palermo signed Bacinovic form NK Maribor in summer 2010.
