It has been confirmed that Alexandre Lacazette will depart on a free transfer, and a couple of alternatives have been suggested in recent weeks, but it appears that head coach Mikel Arteta has added a new name to his summer targets.
The Red Devils have reportedly added the Argentine to their list of goalkeeper transfer targets.
The 29-year-old joined Villa from Arsenal in September 2020 for around £16m, keeping 15 clean sheets in 38 top flight appearances last season.
The Argentine possesses a contract until the end of this season, meaning that he will be free to discuss terms with foreign clubs from next month.
The Bianconeri are eager to wrap up negotiations before the end of this month, and the 28-year-old is still expected to sign fresh terms rather than leaving on a free transfer next summer.
