Aston Villa are keen to bolster their attack by offering Chelsea winger Pedro regular football in January, according to a report.

The Telegraph have claimed that the experienced wide man, whose contract is due to expire next summer, has found regular football hard to come by at Stamford Bridge this season.

It is said that Villa could be a possible destination for the former Barcelona man, who could join the recently-promoted side on a cut-price deal.

Villa are hovering above the relegation zone, at this moment in time, and Dean Smith is need of some attacking experience when the transfer window re-opens.

Whilst Smith has a number of highly-rated talents in his squad, they need that experience and know-how to nit it all together.

A signing like Pedro might just provide Smith with the forward steps that he needs, as the Spaniard’s presence in and around the training ground could prove to be the difference.

Villa have produced mixed performances this season, but their recent 4-1 defeat at home to Leicester City proved that some freshness is needed next month.

More competition and experience is required, and if Smith can provide that then it could prove to be the difference in Villa maintaining their status in England’s top-flight.

If Villa do add Pedro to their ranks then he will compete with Jack Grealish, Anwar El Ghazi, Trezeguet and Jota for those wide spots.
