Toulouse midfielder Moussa Sissoko has emerged as a potential target for Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert, Press Association Sport understands.

The 23-year-old is believed to be under consideration from Lambert, who has identified strengthening in the middle of the park as one of his priorities during the January transfer window.

Sissoko's current contract runs out this summer and he would be available now for around £3 million.
