If Tottenham Hotspur want to sign Jack Grealish this summer, they are probably not doing themselves any favours.
Aston Villa have made it clear that they want at least £30 million for their prized asset, according to the Independent, despite being embroiled in a dire financial situation after losing the play-off final to Fulham last month.
But, according to Sky Sports, Spurs have now come in with a bid that is surely going to be laughed out the door. It is understood that the North London giants have offered a grand total of £15 million for the rising star for Championship football.
Now, Aston Villa might be in a desperate situation but they are surely not desperate enough to sell Grealish for half of his price-tag. In fact, supporters are less than happy with Spurs’ offer and, while it is common practice not to show your hand too early, Daniel Levy is surely running the risk of missing out on Grealish unless he raises his offer substantially.
But reports in the Sun on Tuesday night claimed that £15 million is a take-it-or-leave-it bid – suggesting that Tottenham might not be willing to pay a penny more for a man who has just enjoyed the best run of form in his career.
Though with Villa fans hoping Grealish will stay, this would suit them down to the ground.

Jack grealish is worth more to villa than 15m he’s not replaceable at villa elsewhere he would be. Best chance we’ve got to go up— Jack Priddy (@JackPriddy) June 13, 2018
