ASton VILLA is considering entering the race to sign Juventus star Weston McKennie.
West Ham and Spurs are already actively looking for an American midfielder.
And both are considering whether to bid in the January transfer window.
But Villa is now understood to be interested.
Juventus value the 23-year-old McKennie in the region of £25 million.
The Italian giant may be open to the prospect of an initial loan deal in January.
That is as long as there is an obligation to buy.
Villa owner Dean Smith is likely to continue receiving support to strengthen his squad in the new year.

And that could put him ahead of David Moyes, who has limited money in Hammer.
The Spurs probably need McKennie the most.
Nuno Espirito Santo is starting to make decisions on some of the players he inherited over the summer.
