Villa will battle Crystal Palace for the services of the hard working left wing-back who has been left under the perking order at the English Champions (Leicester City).
Reports indicate Aston Villa boss Steve Bruce wants to complete the signing of the Ghanaian international before the end of the January transfer window.
Leicester City are reported to have placed £12million price tag on the 23-year-old.
Schlupp failed to make the Ghana team for the Africa Cup of Nation due to lack of playing time at Club level.
A move to either Villa or Palace could see him earning a call-up back into the Black Stars team.
