Aston Villa will this week decide whether or not to bid for Vurnon Anita.
Whilst in charge of Norwich City, Paul Lambert made enquiries for the Holland international, but felt he would cost too much to lure to Carrow Road.
Now manager of Villa, the Scot has more transfer funds at his disposal, and he has been tipped to challenge Newcastle United for the 23-year-old midfielder.
The Magpies have already seen an offer of £4million for Anita rejected, and now Lambert will decide this week if he feels the £8million demanded by Ajax is worth meeting.
