Aston Villa & Jack Grealish
Will Jack Grealish leave Aston Villa this summer?
With a week to go in the transfer window, Grealish has been tipped to leave Villa Park to join Tottenham.
Aston Villa begin the 2018-19 Championship season on Monday night with an away trip to Hull City.
Will Grealish be in Steve Bruce’s XI against the Tigers?
Grealish, 22, missed the start of the 2017-18 Championship season due to injury. However, when he came back he was one of Villa’s best players, scoring three and assisting five in 27 league appearances.
Tottenham vs Chelsea
Spurs have been trying to sign Grealish for around 20 million pounds.
But the big update on Thursday is that Chelsea are believed to be ready to pounce for the Villa star.
Chelsea have only made one significant signing this summer as Jorginho has joined from Lazio.
As for Tottenham, Spurs fans are still waiting for their club to sign a single player in the summer transfer window.
The Aston Villa man has long been linked with a move to Tottenham, and while Spurs remain 3/10 favourites to strike a deal this summer, the Blues have this morning entered the market as 7/2 shots.
That makes them clear second favourites ahead of Leicester (7/1), Newcastle (14/1) and Man United (16/1).
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “They’re yet to make a real statement this summer, and while Jack Grealish may not be the blockbuster name Chelsea fans are waiting for, he’d certainly offer Maurizio Sarri something different.”
