Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo will surely be looking to bolster his ranks at Molineux this summer, ahead of his side's return to the Premier League next season, and one of Aston Villa's biggest stars could be the ideal acquisition for them.

One particular area where the Portuguese will want to strengthen is his attacking midfield department, with more creativity and guile needed to help supplement the quality of Ruben Neves in the Black Country outfit's engine room.

With this in mind, Wolves should consider a move for Aston Villa's star-in-the-making Jack Grealish.

The 22-year-old has been linked with a whole host of Premier League clubs, including Newcastle United, Everton and West Ham, according to the Chronicle, and the Villans have slapped a £40 million price-tag on their prized asset.

Grealish enjoyed a successful campaign with Villa last season, chalking up three goals and five assists in 27 Championship outings, but his side's failure to secure promotion to the Premier League, combined with the west Midlands outfit's well-documented financial problems, should open the door for Wolves to make their move.

The English midfielder would be an excellent addition to Nuno's squad, and would provide them with that little bit of extra quality that they will undoubtedly need in the top flight next season.

Whilst £40 million seems to be a rather extortionate fee for Grealish, Wolves would surely be able to barter Villa down, especially considering their need to balance the books.

And if Nuno does manage to bring the 22-year-old to Molineux this summer, it could turn out to be a signing of real significance for Wolves.
