Aston Villa and Hull City to bid for Marcel Sabitzer
Aston Villa and Hull City are to make a transfer bid for Austrian international striker Marcel Sabitzer in January. Rumours suggest that both Premier League teams have been in contact with Sabitzer's club RB Leipzig.
Currently on loan at Red Bull Salzburg, Sabitzer has been in excellent form this season both in front of goal and when providing for other players. Sabitzer currently tops the assist chart for Austria's Bundesliga.
Both Steve Bruce and Paul Lambert have been impressed with the 20-year-old's performances of late and are ready to match the 7 million euro asking price for the versatile forward. Villa had been recommended Sabitzer by their own Austrian striker, Andreas Weimann.
