Tottenham were involved in negotiations for Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish all of last summer, only for the deal to fall through in the end after a change in ownership at Aston Villa.
Grealish himself admitted earlier in the season that the move was close to being done and that he was disappointed it didn’t go through.
While the 23-year-old struggled to find form at the start of this term, he has been back to his best since returning from injury for Aston Villa.
The diminutive playmaker has scored 4 goals and registered 5 assists so far this season and has spearheaded Villa’ fight for promotion via the playoff spot.
According to a report in the Mirror, Spurs will go back in for Grealish in the summer and will face competition for the midfielder from West Ham and Bournemouth.
If Villa don’t get promoted back to the Premier League, then they will surely find it difficult to hang on to Grealish, particularly with Southgate recently coming out and saying that he needed to play in the Premier League in order to make the England squad.
With Spurs desperately needing some reinforcements in midfield after the departure of Mousa Dembele in January, a move for Grealish would certainly make a lot of sense.
