Spurs nowhere near Jack Grealish asking price

Tottenham Hotspur will be desperate to secure a couple of signings before the transfer window shuts having failed to make any moves so far.

Indeed, the London club have Champions League football to look forward to once again this season after finishing in the top four in the last campaign. Although, they don’t appear to be in a good position to bring in a potential addition, as according to Sky Sports, Tottenham are nowhere near reaching Jack Grealish’s asking price.

Aston Villa and Spurs have been locked in transfer talks for a long period of time now, but nothing seems to have developed since then in terms of a possible sale.

Indeed, Villa boss Steve Bruce had this to say:

“I don’t think we’ve had a formal bid. There’s been discussions and that’s been going on all summer. The one thing the owners have made pretty clear is that no-one is for sale.

“We all know what football is, but at the moment Spurs haven’t got anywhere near what the owners want to consider – so there’s not a discussion to be had at the moment, because they’ve not got anywhere near the figure they demand.”

THE VERDICT: 

Spurs haven’t exactly displayed much ambition on the transfer front so far this summer and they don’t look like doing so anytime soon.

Indeed, it appears as if the Villains have received no formal offer and the London club appear to be way off Villa’s asking price for the attacking midfielder. So, Daniel Levy will need to stump up the cash or risk heading into the new campaign looking worse for wear, as the Lilywhites could do with attacking reinforcements.

Sadly, Tottenham’s pursuit of the 22-year-old is seemingly heading down a blind alley, as Mauricio Pochettino’s side are way off the asking price and Villa’s owners are reluctant to sell any of their star players.
