The Times reports that Tottenham Hotspur are in advanced talks to sign Jack Grealish and are set to lodge an offer thought to be about £20 million for the 22-year-old. The paper also states that that the Aston Villa midfielder has indicated that he would like to join Spurs although Villa are pushing for a better price. Grealish has two years left on his contract.
Grealish may have potential, but is really a prospect and would not be likely to have immediate impact in helping Spurs achieve the next level. The same report mentions that Crystal Palace are confident that another player linked with Spurs, Wilfried Zaha, is going to stay at the club. Zaha bagged a good few goals last season but somequestion whether he would be the kind of next level player Spurs may need. In the meantime, Spurs fans are looking forward to seeing more Of Lucas Moura in the PL and are hoping he will bring the creative quality needed for squad depth. Spurs have suffered when Eriksen has been off form and have also failed to break down stonewall defences. No one would expect Grealish to be able to turn those things around. He would be a squad player and may be more likely to play behind the attacking players. What of Zaha? Does he have the qualities needed to turn some of those draws into wins?
As always Spurs fans, we want your views!
