Wolves should try to sign Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish

Wolverhampton Wanderers should try to sign Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish.

What’s the word?

The 22-year-old is likely to have attracted plenty of interest, especially due to the fact that the Midlands outfit is struggling with financial problems.

After Villa failed to beat Fulham in the Championship playoff final, there were always going to be fears that the club would lose their best players.

Grealish is in that calibre and he has been heavily linked with a switch to Tottenham Hotspur, although there has not been anything concrete to suggest a transfer is happening.

Wolves should certainly consider being part of the conversation as this is the best time for them to swoop.

Why now?

With Villa in the financial predicament that they are in, the club could be forced to sell one of their top stars.

Grealish has been going from strength to strength at Villa, but now is the time to prove himself once again in the Premier League.

At Tottenham he could struggle for a regular first-team spot, but he would have more opportunities at Wolves.

Of course, there is the argument of the rivalry between Villa and Wolves, but with the latter being in the top flight this season, the direct competition is no longer there.

The club should also be looking to the future, and the attacking midfielder is certainly worth investing in.
