Aston Villa are reportedly considering a loan offer for Strasbourg striker Stephane Bahoken this month, per Sportsmole and Birmingham Mail.

With Jonathan Kodjia likely to be out for the rest of the season, Villa manager Steve Bruce is looking to bring in a new striker to add quality to his side, as they look to challenge for promotion, and it appears that Bahoken is one of the players who he could potentially sign this month.

Bahoken has scored four times in nine starts this season for Strasbourg and will be a free agent during the summer as his current contract is expiring.

Villa are reported to be entertaining the thought of bringing the striker on loan this month to bolster their options.

It does however remain to be seen if Strasbourg will be open to such an offer.

Meanwhile Villa have also been linked with out of favour Leicester City striker Leandro Ulloa.
