Aston Villa are reported to be keeping tabs on PSV Eindhoven's highly-rated full-back Stanislav Manolev.
The 24-year-old Bulgarian joined the Dutch giants last summer and he has impressed hugely.
Villa are believed to be in the market for a new right-back and reports from Holland claim they are checking on Manolev.
It is also claimed that Manchester City and Cologne are showing an interest.
Manolev is contracted to PSV until 2012, although they also have a two-year option on him.
