Tottenham Hotspur are set to complete a deal worth around £20million to sign Jack Grealish with Mauricio Pochettino eager to have him on the tour of the USA, according to the Daily Mirror.
It has been well documented that Aston Villa are in financial difficulty and need to find about £40m to comply with Financial Fair Play regulations after failing to secure a return to the Premier League, costing them a potential £160m in future revenue.
Villa boss Steve Bruce has even admitted that the Championship outfit have no option but to sell the England Under-21 international.
Daniel Levy in typical fashion has been holding back making an offer for Grealish in order to try and lower the transfer fee in light of Villa’s issues.
Tottenham board the plane for Los Angeles on Sunday to head Stateside for friendlies against Roma, Barcelona and AC Milan; as things stand, there will be no new signings on show as Levy is yet to back his manager to the huge frustration of the Spurs fanbase.
Grealish is said to be ready to leave his boyhood club and would substantially improve his current £20,000-a-week contract.
