The Villans are in a dire financial situation after failing to gain promotion to the Premier League, meaning their prized asset could be sold
Tottenham Hotspur have made a cheeky £15 million bid for Aston Villa playmaker Jack Grealish, according to sources.
With Villa in dire financial troubles after failing to gain promotion to the Premier League, Grealish is expected to be sold this summer to raise funds.
And the 22-year-old has gained the attention of a host of Premier League clubs, with Spurs looking to steal a march on their rivals.
According to Sky Sports News, Mauricio Pochettino is keen to bring the England Under-21 international to the club.
Chelsea, Fulham and Leicester City are also reportedly monitoring Grealish’s situation at Villa Park, with the club preparing for another huge season in the Championship.
After beating Middlesbrough over two legs in the semi-finals, Steve Bruce’s men were defeated 1-0 by Fulham in the Wembley showpiece.
Despite an overall optimistic board meeting on Monday, the Villans are expected to sell their prized asset this summer.
Grealish has two years left on his current deal and refused to sign a contract extension midway through last season.
