Aston Villa

Big money swoop for Aston Villa ace should be Wolves’ next plan



Jack Grealish was Aston Villa’s stand-out performer in the play-off final defeat to Fulham.

As well as nearly scoring after dancing through half the Fulham defence, the 22-year old was at the heart of every attack.  Unfortunately for Villa, this ultimately fruitless effort will only intensify the race for his signature from Premier League clubs. Newly promoted Wolves should look to join the running.

With Wolves looking to invest heavily, particularly in exciting young talent, such a move would fit well with the vision of the club. His playing style is already a natural fit, with his tendency to run at defenders reflecting Wolves’ dynamic attack.

Grealish missed much of the season through injury, yet still managed to grab three goals and six assists. His talent shone through in much of the rest of his game. He topped Aston Villa’s charts in shots per game (2.1), dribbles per game (3), and fouled per game (3.4). His ability to take players on as well as be a constant goal threat allowed Villa to build their attack around him.

This was done to the extent that they looked toothless without him. Consequently, there will be a hefty price tag attached with the club looking for at least £40 million. It is likely that he will depart for less than that, but, nonetheless, such an investment would pay off. At 22, there is plenty of room for growth and, with 33 Premier League appearances, will not be awed by having to perform on the big stage.
