Aston Villa reportedly plan to launch a move for Chelsea winger Pedro in the January transfer window.

Aston Villa will reportedly launch a move for Chelsea winger Pedro in the January transfer window.

The 32-year-old has been frozen out in recent times under manager Frank Lampard, managing just one start in the past two months.

Christian Pulisic's surge in form, along with Callum Hudson-Odoi returning from injury, has pushed the Spaniard further down the pecking order.

According to The Telegraph, Villa boss Dean Smith will look to bolster the club's attack by looking to sign Pedro for a reduced price.

The Midlands club expect Chelsea to sell Pedro for a cut price due to the player's contract expiring in the summer, enabling him to leave for free if the Blues fail to sell in January.

Lampard is determined to build a team based on a foundation of youthful players such as Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount, casting uncertainty over Pedro's future.
