The 25-year-old Senegalese, who has played more than 130 games for Lille since joining in 2010, is flying to Britain tomorrow for talks and a medical.
If he completes a move to Villa Park, Gueye would be Tim Sherwood's second summer signing at Villa, following Micah Richards' move from Manchester City last month after a loan spell with Serie A side Fiorentina.
