Aston Villa manager Remi Garde revealed fringe Leicester City midfielder Gokhan Inler is on the club’s radar heading into the January transfer window.
Leicester are flying high in 2015-16, topping the Premier League table going into Christmas Day, but Inler has been a peripheral figure having started just two matches since arriving from Napoli in the off-season.
Claudio Ranieri is believed to be willing to allow Inler to leave and Villa are reportedly ready to offer the 31-year-old Switzerland captain an escape route ahead of Euro 2016.
“I’m aware of his situation because I’ve looked at all the players who could be interested [in a move] because of the Euros,” said Garde.
“I don’t want to say to you where he is on my list, though.
“Of course, every player who will play Euros, I am interested in because they are good players.
“It doesn’t mean they will come or that I have already called them. But I know him very well.”
