Rashica is also on the radar of Bundesliga side RB Leipzig, but he has never had an agreement to join the Germans.
Talks are ongoing and Villa could soon seal the deal as the winger is keen on playing in the English Premier League.
The 24-year-old scored eight goals and weighed in with five assists in 28 league games last term, and he will definitely be a huge boost to Villa’s attack.
The Villans have brought in English striker Ollie Watkins from Brentford and are also keen on Bournemouth’s Josh King as Smith looks to strengthen his attack for the new season’s challenges.
