Tottenham Hotspur are understood to be planning a fresh attempt to acquire the services of Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish, after failing with an approach during last summer’s transfer window.
The 23-year-old was heavily tipped to make the switch to north London last summer, and Spurs were equally confident of pushing through the move amid the Villans’ financial concerns.
That did not happen, however, with the west Midlands outfit temporarily sorting out the concern with the ownership change, but it appears that Spurs could return with a renewed offer when the season concludes.
According to The Express, the north London outfit are likely to return with a fresh proposal to sign the Villa ace after previously failing with a £30m bid before the beginning of this current season.
It is added that they are confident of luring the midfielder this time around, amid the Villans’ increasing financial concerns, whilst the midfielder may himself want a bigger challenge to push for a England call-up.
Grealish changed his allegiance to England from the Republic of Ireland in 2015 and he has since represented the country at the Under-21 level without making the step up to the senior squad under Gareth Southgate.
This has largely come about from him playing Championship football, and it remains to be seen whether he has the same patience during the summer, if Villa fail to seal promotion.
Villa currently occupy sixth position in the league standings, and their prospects of keeping hold of Grealish may entirely depend on their top-flight return. Otherwise, they may have to cash in on the talented midfielder this summer.
