Agbonlahor says Villa should keep Grealish, predicts top four challenges

Jack Grealish is undoubtedly one of Aston Villa’s biggest stars right now.

The 24-year-old midfielder has been extremely prolific for the Villans in the 2019/20 campaign, already netting nine goals and adding eight assists to his tally across 28 games in all competitions.

Did this footballer play for Aston Villa?

But for exactly that reason, it doesn’t really surprise to see him linked with an exit, with Manchester United reportedly interested in his services ahead of next season.

Villa’s icon Gabby Agbonlahor, however, believes that the club should definitely keep their star if possible because he is yet to reach his full potential, even claiming this season’s relegation strugglers could go onto to challenge for Champions League qualification.

Here’s what he said on talkSPORT:

“He’s getting better and I don’t think you’ve seen him at his peak yet. If they can keep hold of Jack and then rebuild, start spending more money on the right players, why can’t Villa fight for top four again? I don’t see a reason why not.”

Of course, keeping Grealish could be much easier said than done, especially if he keeps performing at such a high level.

But if Villa manage to do exactly that, it would undoubtedly be a huge statement for the rest of the Premier League teams and a massive platform for them to build on going forward.

Only time will tell, though.
