Aston Villa have entered the race to sign Fulham striker Ross McCormack, according to Sky sources.
It is understood Villa made a £12m offer for the Scotland international on Tuesday afternoon as boss Roberto Di Matteo looks to strengthen his squad ahead of the start of the new season.
Norwich City have already made a bid in excess of £10m for McCormack after two earlier offers were rejected by Fulham.
McCormack, who moved to Fulham from Leeds for £11m in July 2014, is understood to be keen to see the situation resolved soon, with Fulham's first Sky Bet Championship game this Friday against Newcastle United.
The 29-year-old, who has also played for Rangers, Doncaster, Motherwell and Cardiff, scored 21 Championship goals last season for Fulham and has netted a total of 42 goals in 100 appearances for the London club.
