The Midlanders have reportedly taken note of Salva's exceptional performances this term and even had him watched during Spain's win over Denmark.
The Malaga marksman had few chances to impress for Inaki Saez's side but has been in explosive form at club level, slamming in 17 goals.
Villa have also kept tabs on Miguel Angel, but Salva would represent an interesting target should O'Leary make a move for the 28-year-old.
The former Valencia striker had a spell in England with Bolton Wanderers on loan last season, but failed to do his talents justice at The Reebok Stadium.
Skysports.com has previously detailed Villa's interest in midfield duo Romero and Angel.
