Tottenham fans are heaping praise on Daniel Levy, after reports claimed he would go full Levy on Aston Villa this summer.
The Jack Grealish to Tottenham rumour has been heating up since the Telegraph claimed he was a “prime target” for Mauricio Pochettino, and the latest reports claim Levy will play hardball to get the price down.
Villa are facing a financial crisis this summer, which will likely force the sale of several of their more sellable assets, and Grealish is their prized possession.
While some reports have named Villa’s price as high as £40m, Levy is expected to try and get that price down to around £15m, and the Spurs chairman will “make Villa sweat” while they edge closer to a full on financial crisis.
The Championship club need to pay their staff by the end of June, so the longer Spurs wait the more likely they are to get a bargain for the exciting 22 year-old.
The feisty 22 year-old, who scored three and assisted six in an injury-hit season last year, was fantastic in the Villans run to the playoff final.
Much like when Dele Alli was signed, Grealish has all the skills and physical components to be a hit in the top tier, and plays with that killer edge that fans will absolutely adore. If anyone can get the best out of the youngster, it’s Pochettino.
Levy has quite the reputation for his negotiating skills, and fans have been hilariously praising him on Twitter. You can find some of the best reactions down below…
