The former Arsenal star, who now works as a pundit for Sky Sports, has spoken highly of the attacking midfielder, and believes that the 24-year-old is good enough to play for Manchester United as well.
Merson wrote about Grealish in The Daily Star: “Grealish would walk into the United team. Tottenham tried to get him not long ago and he’d walk into their team right now as well.
“I can’t explain to people how good this kid is. Aston Villa lost 6-1 to Manchester City and he was the only one who still had time on the ball.
“His composure is something else. I don’t understand why clubs aren’t queuing up to try and sign him.”
Former Mauricio Pochettino target
Tottenham were linked with a move for Grealish when Mauricio Pochettino was the manager of the North London outfit.
Not for Tottenham Hotspur?
While Grealish is a very good attacking player, he is not what Tottenham need right now - they need a striker.
