Jack Grealish is ready to leave his boyhood club Aston Villa for a move to the Premier League this summer. The 22-year-old had been one of the club’s key performers last season and has attracted the interest from several teams from the Premier League, with Tottenham Hotspur leading the race.
According to the Mirror, Spurs are yet to make an offer for Grealish, with Aston Villa expecting a first bid in the region of 40 million. With the Villans cash woes Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is said to be biding time to exploit these financial troubles.
It is believed that former Chelsea skipper John Terry has played a big part in Grealish’ desire to make a move to the Premier League. Terry had been like a mentor for the young forward during his time at Villa, stressing his top-flight quality and England national team potential.
