Speaking to Football Insider, pundit Paul Robinson has tipped Jack Grealish to sign for Spurs amid a plethora of reports he could be set to leave Aston Villa – going on to claim he would ‘absolutely love’ to see him in north London.
Grealish, who has been in dazzling form for both club and country this season, has been heavily linked with a move away recently – and Robinson claims top European clubs, including Spurs, could want him while a ‘move is possible’.
Should Spurs sign Jack Grealish?
No, far too expensive
Grealish tipped for Spurs move
The £135,000-per-week star, earning his first England caps in recent months, shone against Belgium in a 2-0 defeat on Sunday – surely earning Gareth Southgate’s trust as a potential key player for the postponed Euros next summer.
Robinson, reacting to Grealish’s brilliant performances recently, has urged Spurs and Daniel Levy to swoop for the midfielder – potentially as midfield heir to former creative spark Christian Eriksen.
Top teams in Europe will be looking at Grealish,” explained Robinson to Football Insider.
“He loves the club but if he wants to win things at some point he will have to leave Aston Villa. It depends on his ambition.
“I would absolutely love to see him in a Tottenham shirt.
“Any top club in Europe will take Jack Grealish right now if they could but he signed a new contract so Aston Villa will demand a huge price tag for him.
“If a club does have the money and Grealish wants to play Champions League football then a move is possible.”
Transfer Tavern take
Described as the ‘real deal‘ after his performance against Belgium, another former player, Jamie O’Hara, waxed lyrical over Tottenham potentially signing him – claiming he would be ‘brilliant for Spurs’.
Whether or not Daniel Levy invests heavily in bringing him to north London remains to be seen, but Grealish could be the creative engine Spurs have been missing since Eriksen’s departure.
