Plenty of Aston Villa fans have discussed a number of names as potential replacements for Jack Grealish, who could leave the club this summer for a move to Manchester United.
The Claret and Blue club captain’s reputation and performances in the English top flight continue to impress, gaining interest from the likes of Man United.
Grealish has been in excellent form this season, contributing to Villa’s cause with seven goals and six assists.
With football at a standstill, the former England U21 international’s mind will undoubtedly be on helping his boyhood club survive a potential relegation to the Championship just one year after gaining promotion via the play-off final.
However, interest will seemingly not disappear, causing Villa fans to become concerned that they could lose arguably their biggest talent this summer.
Whilst United have been labelled with interest, so have Everton with Toffees boss Carlo Ancelotti keen to put his own stamp on life at Goodison Park.
Looking at the potential interest in Grealish, Transfer Tavern’s Ben Crump asked fans via Facebook group Aston Villa Fan Club: “Realistically? No Messi’s etc. Who would be the perfect replacement for Jack Grealish?” – and below are just some of the responses from fans.
Louie ‘ocoe’ O’Connor: Eze – QPR
Conor Scanlon: Cantwell
Paul Kelly: I know I am probably going to get stick for this but with the money we get for Grealish, could we not go for Maddison or Mount
Andy Morris: I reckon that Callum O’Hare could be the next Jack if given the chance to play a few games in the first team without any pressure of having to perform every week like Jack has too.
Stephen Murphy: Zaha
Brian Martin: Messi to become manager/footballer
Karen Margaret Salt: Nobody
Alex Brown: I would get Buendia, Eze and Benrahma with the Grealish money
Jamie Sayer: Why not our very own new lad Louie Barry, has the potential to be a great player
Muhammed Gharda: Marcus Maddison/Joe Lolley
