Aston Villa Football Club hope to land Andy Johnson during the summer.
The former Everton striker is set to become a free agent at the end of the season, when he is expected to leave Craven Cottage as his Fulham deal expires.
Alex McLeish is working on a tight budget at Villa Park ahead of next term, and has already sealed the free transfer capture of Austrian Brett Holman.
And the Scot has now made Johnson a top target, although the 31-year-old is likely to bide his time to see what other options become available.
