Paul Lambert is reportedly looking to battle it out with Roma to take 17-year-old Serbian starlet Filip Jankovic to Aston Villa.
The Villa chief has never been shy of giving young talent a chance to shine at any club he has been in charge of and Villa is no different.
And it appears he has been alerted by the Jankovic who has already broken into the first team squad at Red Star Belgrade in his homeland.
However, it appears Italian Serie A outfit Roma are leading the chase to sign the player who would already command a fee in the region of £3million.
Therefore Lambert will have to work hard to persuade Jankovic to move to England, while Porto and Dynamo Kiev have also been credited with an interest in signing him.
