Tottenham Hotspur haven’t exactly made moves on the transfer front thus far as they continue to watch fellow Premier League sides splash the cash.
Mauricio Pochettino has worked wonders in North London over the past couple of years, but the lack of business completed this summer could cause problems in the new campaign. And, as if things on the transfer front weren’t already bad enough, things have gotten even worse, as according to The Mirror, Aston Villa’s new owners have blocked Jack Grealish from leaving this summer.
Spurs’ dithering over Jack Grealish’s £20 million transfer from Championship side Aston Villa has backfired.
Daniel Levy gambled on driving down the sale price due to Villa’s financial woes, but Aston Villa now have new owners who have decided to block the Englishman’s exit.
This is a major blow for the London club as they invested so much time and energy into trying to tempt Jack Grealish into making the step up to the Premier League.
So, Spurs now look to have missed out on arguably their priority summer transfer window target, which comes as no surprise having witnessed Daniel Levy’s sluggishness.
Indeed, Tottenham’s interest in Jack Grealish appears to have ended in failure, with the London club now forced to look elsewhere as clock ticks down.
