Rodallega: Villa interest
Aston Villa are looking to land Wigan duo Maynor Figueroa and Hugo Rodallega, skysports.com understands.
Villa are ready to make major strides in the transfer market after so far failing to land any of their targets this month.
The Midlands outfit are now believed to be lining up a double deal for the Latics duo after owner Randy Lerner give the green light to make the move.
Skysports.com understands that Villa are ready to pay £10million for the pair, with Figueroa valued at £4million and Rodallega £6million.
Both players have attracted substantial interest over previous months, and could now be set to leave the DW Stadium.
Colombian ace Rodallega joined Wigan from Mexican side Necaxa two years ago, whilst Honduran Figueroa arrived from Olimpia 12 months earlier.
The duo are firm fans' favourites, but the Latics could find Villa's approach hard to turn down.
Skysports.com also understands that Villa have made another fresh bid for Blackpool's Charlie Adam.
Blackpool have insisted they are not looking to sell having shunned bids from both Villa and Birmingham City.
But Villa are refusing to give up and are understood to have returned to Bloomfield Road with another proposal.
