The Daily Mail are reporting that Jack Grealish is keen on a move to us ahead of other clubs.
Chelsea, Fulham and Leicester City are also said to be in the race to sign the 22-year-old but the midfielder is believed to be excited by the prospect of playing alongside Harry Kane and Dele.
Fans on Twitter were happy that the player is keen on a switch, but not all think we should be pursuing him:
For 15 million young Englishman I would take him all day long

Dele would keep him out the team tho surely?

No where near good enough

Not really impressed with it but I understand the reason we probably will sign him

I want to play alongside Dele and Harry Kane, doesn’t mean I’m good enough

If we get him at Levy’s price, I am OK with it. He will improve under Poch.

Grealish is a talented player, and he has matured as a footballer and person over the course of last season. No doubt, Mauricio Pochettino can help develop his game, but there are questions over the amount of game time he would get.
For Villa, he has generally played his best football in the no.10 role, and with Dele, Christian Eriksen and Erik Lamela all capable in that position, it’s hard to see where he’d fit in.
