Leicester City should move for Aston Villa's Jack Grealish.

Jack Grealish's brief career at Aston Villa has been littered with inconsistency on the pitch and controversy off it.

The 20-year-old midfielder made only nine Premier League starts last term for the Villans and at one point was forced to train with the youth team following a series of indiscretions.

Grealish quite obviously has incredible potential, but his career could be in danger of stagnating if he stays at Villa. Sometimes, and especially in football, a fresh start is needed, with a clean slate in order to reach maximum potential.

An ideal move for the Villa youngster would be to Premier League Champions Leicester City. Although the Foxes already have a strong midfield pairing of N'Golo Kante and Danny Drinkwater, Grealish would bring something entirely different to the squad, with his impeccable range of passing and ability on the ball when in possession.

While Grealish's attitude and application is questionable, his talent is anything but, and who better to coax the best out of him than arguably the best man-manager in the league - Claudio Ranieri.

The 20-year-old is under contract at Villa Park until the summer of 2018, and with the potential and talent he possesses a fairly substantial offer would be needed to tempt the Midlands club into selling.

It would be the perfect deal for all parties involved. Leicester could offer Grealish the platform to re-focus, work hard and establish himself once again as a top Premier League midfielder.

The Foxes would be gaining a fantastic footballer, with the potential to become one of the best players in the league, and Villa would receive a nice amount of money that could go towards subsidising Roberto Di Matteo's expected rebuilding job at Villa Park.
