Tottenham Hotspur are ready to test Aston Villa’s resolve for Jack Grealish by offering players such as Cameron Carter-Vickers and Josh Onomah on loan to the Championship outfit.
Villa, who have only just staved off the immediate threat of administration by settling their bill with HMRC are said to value Grealish at £40million whilst the shrewd Spurs chairman Daniel Levy believes he can land the England Under-21 international for a cut price.
Failure to secure promotion back to the Premier League has left Villa in a huge financial mess and are likely to part with their prize asset during this summer’s transfer window.
Midfielder Josh Onomah spent the whole of last season on loan at Steve Bruce’s side while Carter-Vickers has had previous Championship loan experience at Sheffield United and Ipswich Town, with John Terry deciding to throw in the towel, Villa will be looking for another central defender.
Leicester City are also said to be keen on signing Grealish, but Tottenham are considered front-runners with a central midfielder high on their shopping list due to Harry Winks’ injury concerns and doubts over the future of Mousa Dembele.
