Tottenham fans split on “prime target” Grealish

Tottenham have moved into pole position to sign Jack Grealish this summer, but fans are completely split on a move for the feisty youngster.

According to the Telegraph, Mauricio Pochettino has made Aston Villa’s Grealish his “prime target” as he looks to strengthen his midfield this summer.

Grealish showed potential as a winger when he first broke into the Villa senior side, but was fantastic as a central midfielder for Steve Bruce last season.

The 22 year-old excels at driving forward from midfield with the ball at his feet, and could replace some of the ball carrying ability lost if Mousa Dembele leaves the club.

Grealish missed most of the first half of last season, but still managed three Championship goals and six assists, and went from strength to strength towards the end of the season.

Aston Villa will likely be forced to sell their most valuable assets this summer to fight off their financial troubles, and insist they will not sell for under £40million.

Daniel Levy will of course hope to use the Villans’ precarious financial situation to his advantage and bring that price down a bit, but fans aren’t all that convinced.

Some fans are ready to get behind the young Englishman, who has a reputation for losing his cool, while others want to see more ambition from the club.
