A handful of other Championship outfits are also keen on the 20-year-old.

The forward joined Preston after spending the first half of last season at Villa.

He played three Premier League games for them from the substitutes’ bench.

Archer has been part of the England Under-21 team who have scored four goals in their last four internationals.

Villa are on the hunt for a new striker this summer, with Gerrard’s former Liverpool team-mate Luis Suarez being linked with an impressive move to Villa Park.

Uncertainty remains over the future centre-forward duo of Danny Ings and Ollie Watkins.

Meanwhile, Villa Blackpool paid a staggering £1.2million compensation package for manager Neil Critchley.

Gerrard was keen to reunite with his old Liverpool pal to replace Michael Beale, who left the club to become QPR boss.

Villa was more than happy to pay Critchley the staggering sum.

Blackpool have meanwhile appointed Michael Appleton as their new manager.

He returns to Bloomfield Road after a stint as coach of the team in the 2012/13 season.

Appleton took over just twelve games for the club, eight of which he drew.
