Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish has been shining this season in the Premier League and one of the latest pundits to praise the Villa captain is former Arsenal and Everton forward Kevin Campbell.
Campbell’s thoughts on Jack Grealish
Speaking to Football Insider, Campbell said: “On that performance the other night, I think Real Madrid and Barcelona will be looking at him.
“Arsenal made him look fantastic but I am not taking anything away from Jack Grealish because he is a superb player. He has been the form guy for Aston Villa and it was virtually a one-man show last season.
“He kept them in the Premier League but Arsenal offered no real resistance the other night. They allowed him to do what he wanted. He bullied Bellerin. He did not do himself a bad turn. If Arsenal are looking to sign a player of Jack Grealish’s ilk, he did not do himself any harm. There was speculation about Manchester United last summer and I am sure he could play for any of the top six.”
Grealish could thrive in world class sides
The attacking midfielder has had a great campaign so far in the Premier League to help Villa sit sixth in the division after eight games. The Englishman has scored four goals and picked up five assists (WhoScored). He has also managed on average 3.1 shots, 2.7 key passes and 2.9 successful dribbles a game.
Grealish has received praise from many in the footballing world, including Brendan Rogders, who said: “He’s a marvellous player and one of a number of players with England that are very talented.”
He is still only 25, so has years to grow even better and there is no reason to doubt the Englishman being able to play for a club as huge as Barcelona or Real Madrid.
He is shining every week in a team that finished 17th in the division last campaign, and those who love the player can only drool at the prospects of him playing in a side with European superstars – no offence to John McGinn and Ross Barkley.
