Chelsea Reportedly Leapfrog Tottenham in Pursuit of Championship Midfielder With £30m Bid

14 June 2018

Grealish has attracted interest from the likes of Manchester United and Spurs in the past, with the latter now leading the race to sign him this summer.

Chelsea's London rivals Tottenham have launched a £15 million bid for Aston Villa Jack Grealish.

Grealish has been with Villa his entire career having joined the clubs youth ranks as a kid and he's progressed through the system to become a vital player at Villa Park in recent years.

The 22-year-old was on fine form for Villa last season, featuring in 34 games across all competitions.

The England Under-21 worldwide has attracted interest from the Premier League with TeamTalk claiming that Arsenal, Tottenham and Chelsea are among a host of clubs to have expressed their interest this summer.

The Aston Villa midfielder enjoyed a superb season in the Championship, but saw his club fall just short of promotion to the Premier League with a 1-0 defeat in the playoff final to Fulham.

Villa value their prize asset at closer to double that figure - and they could be more interested in a bid from Chelsea, especially as it is likely to see Grealish loaned back to the club for next season.

Sky Sports News reported over the weekend that Spurs were considering a move for Grealish, who was not among their original list of transfer targets this summer.
