The report indicates that Everton are monitoring the situation, although their first priority is to appoint a new manager following the abrupt departure of Carlo Ancelotti last week.
Villa, meanwhile, is interested in Wood as an ‘ideal foil’ for England international Ollie Watkins, who impressed in his first season in the Premier League.
And West Ham, who qualified for the Europa League via sixth place, is also a fan of the New Zealander.
Wood has been a reliable source of goals since arriving at Burnley from Leeds in 2017.
