Chelsea 'offer tempting Jack Grealish package'

Today, the latest on Jack Grealish...

However, according to TEAMtalk, Chelsea have hatched a plan to persuade Villa to part ways with Grealish.

Grealish has been with Villa his entire career having joined the clubs youth ranks as a kid and he's progressed through the system to become a vital player at Villa Park in recent years.

Tottenham have been one of a number of top clubs who have scouted the England U21 worldwide during an impressive season in the EFL Championship, where Villa reached the play-off final but lost to Fulham.


Villa had initially slapped a £40million price tag on Grealish's head; however, due to their current battle with HMRC, Spurs may be able to negotiate a cheaper deal which makes the prospect of Grealish coming to North London even more likely. The 22-year-old was instrumental in their promotion push last season that saw Steve Bruce's side reach the Championship play-off final where they narrowly lost out to Fulham at Wembley.

Given Aston Villa's failure to gain promotion back to the Premier League, and their subsequent financial issues, it is widely accepted that Grealish will be leaving this summer.

Sky Sports News reported over the weekend that Spurs were considering a move for Grealish, who was not among their original list of transfer targets this summer.
