Chelsea are reportedly preparing a bid for Aston Villa ace Jack Grealish as per the report in Italian outlet TRANSFERmarketWEB.
The Blues are ready to go head-to-head with Manchester City in the pursuit of England International. Pep Guardiola has already identified the 25-year-old as one of the targets for this summer along with Harry Kane.
However, the West London club have not given up their hope to persuade the midfielder away from the Citizens’ grasp. And previously reported that the Birmingham-based club are also desperate to keep hold of their talisman and offer a bid salary to keep their homegrown talent.
Nevertheless, the midfielder is a way better player to compete for a mid-table finish. And he should be playing for a Champions League club. Chelsea and Manchester City both will be able to offer Grealish the same and it will come down to who will offer a better financial deal to the Englishman.
Can Chelsea sign Grealish this summer?
According to the report in the Italian outlet, Chelsea are monitoring the Jack Grealish situation with Manchester City. The Blues board are working silently for the midfielder’s service ready to take him away from the Citizens’ grasp.
Aston Villa value their star around £100 million and Thomas Tuchel’s side are reportedly planning to hijack Manchester City’s move for the England International as per the report in Daily Star.
Signing Grealish will certainly make the Chelsea midfield extremely strong. However, having signed Kai Havertz and Hakim Ziyech last season along with the presence of Mason Mount, the West London club are stacked in that department.
Tuchel’s side should go all out for a centre-forward this summer and Erling Braut Haaland is their number one choice. Timo Werner is not a number nine and will never become one. So, signing a new striker will make Chelsea the Premier League title contender. The German boss should not invest the aforementioned fee on an attacking midfielder and should sign a new world-class forward.
