Aston Villa have had a bid of £12m accepted by Lorient for striker Jordan Ayew, according to Sky sources.
The Ghana international is expected to arrive in Birmingham in the next 24 hours for further talks and a medical.
The former Marseille striker will be a direct replacement for Christian Benteke who moved to Liverpool for £32.5m earlier this week.
The 23-year-old’s brother Andre joined Swansea on a free transfer this summer and his brother could now be set to join him in the Premier League.
Aston Villa have not been available for comment this morning.
