Tottenham have made Jack Grealish a prime summer target and believe they can sign the Aston Villa midfielder for around £15 million, according to the Telegraph.
Grealish scored three goals in 27 league appearances last season as Villa reached the Championship play-off final only to lose against Fulham.
Villa narrowly avoided the threat of administration earlier this week, and they are expected to cash in on Grealish this summer to avoid further financial troubles.
As a result, the Telegraph claims Spurs chairman Daniel Levy thinks he can sign Grealish for just £15 million, although Villa value the 22-year-old at a much higher price.
Grealish is close friends with Dele Alli and it believed he would be keen to work under Mauricio Pochettino, given the Argentinian’s track record with developing young English talent.
Pochettino has reportedly been handed increased transfer funds this summer, and a new attacker is said to be on his list of targets.
Grealish would function as deputy for Christian Eriksen more than anything else, but that’s not a bad thing – Tottenham have been crying out for more creativity in the final third in recent seasons.
