Aston Villa allegedly hold an interest in signing Defensa y Justicia defender David Martinez during one of the upcoming transfer windows.

Defensa y Justicia defender David Martinez has reportedly emerged as a potential transfer target for Aston Villa.

With Steven Gerrard having been appointed as the successor to Dean Smith, Villa are in the process of identifying possible additions to the first-team squad.

According to Argentine outlet Ole, Villa are among a number of clubs who have taken an interest in Martinez.

The 23-year-old, who switched allegiances from Argentina to represent Paraguay, is currently impressing during a loan period at River Plate, his former club.

River Plate are allegedly keen to negotiate a deal with Defensa y Justicia where they would each own 50% of the rights for the player.

AC Milan, Inter Milan, Fiorentina and Atletico Madrid are all said to be monitoring the situation ahead of a bid for the £5m-rated centre-back.
