Aston Villa and West Brom are reported to be keen on Nicola Legrottaglie.Aston Villa and West Bromwich Albion are reported to be battling it out for Juventus defender Nicola Legrottaglie.
Reports emanating from Italy claim that Villa and West Brom have enquired about the Italy international.
Legrottaglie has been frozen out of the club's first team reckoning this season by Bianconeri boss Fabio Capello.
Legrottaglie has admitted he could leave Juve in the transfer window, as he wants to be playing regular first team football.
West Brom boss Bryan Robson has been scouring Italy in his bid to bolster his squad, although reports suggest Legrottaglie has snubbed a move to The Hawthorns.
Villa are thought to have jumped to the head of the queue for the former Chievo ace, with David O'Leary looking to strengthen his squad.
Villa have made moves to sign Andy O'Brien and should they miss out on the Irish international, they could step up their interest in Legrottaglie.
