Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing Jack Grealish from Aston Villa in the summer transfer window, according to The Express.

It has been reported that Tottenham are keen on securing the services of Grealish from Championship club Villa this summer.

The North London outfit, though, according to the report, do not want to pay the transfer fee that the Villans are claimed to be looking for.

According to The Express, Villa want as much as £40 million in order to part company with the 22-year-old, who can operate as a winger or an attacking midfielder.

Quality footballer

Grealish is a hugely talented and promising young attacking player who scored three goals and provided six assists in 22 Championship starts for Villa this past season.

The 22-year-old would be a good long-term signing for Spurs, as he has quality and has also played in the Premier League.

Former Tottenham manager Tim Sherwood worked with Grealish at Villa, and he rates the young attacker very highly.

The Mirror quoted Sherwood as saying about Grealish in September 2015 when asked how much he was worth: “I wouldn’t want to sell Jack Grealish for £60million today put it that way. I know what he could possibly be.

“What looks expensive this year might not be expensive next year. That’s the way the game is going.

“He’s a great player is Jack, but he’s got to realise – I’ve been on at him every day – there is more to the game than just when you’re in possession.”
