Aston Villa are plotting an ambitious move for Juventus midfielder Rodrigo Bentancur.

The central midfielder is a key target for manager Steven Gerrard, per Football Insider.

The source suggests that the club are offering Juventus around £18 million for Bentancur.

The Uruguay international is also keen to make the move this month, as he believes he will get more first team chances at Villa than Juve.

Villa want to replace the absent Marvelous Nakamba, who suffered a knee injury last month.
