There is a distant possibility of Aston Villa midfield ace, Jack Grealish ending up with Wolves in the next summer window. Skybet has given the EFL Championship winners 20/1 odds of landing the highly influential youngster.
This is a possibility which can hardly be entertained if Steve Bruce and his men join the Wanderers in the Premier League next season. The Villans are in the playoffs and the result of the 4-way battle is yet to be known.
Grealish is almost certain to stay with the team if they succeed in their triumph over the rest in the coming weeks. However, if the team somehow gets knocked out, things could get interesting judging by the lengths the player has come to.
Grealish is one of the most talented attacking midfielders in the English second division and deserves a call-up from one of the top-flight clubs. Injury has stolen most of his playing time this season but when he has been on the pitch, Aston Villa has looked like a different team.
He chipped in with 8 assists and 3 goals in his 32 all around appearances this campaign. His involvement in the team’s attack is crucial. The 22-year-old times his passes well and has a creative instinct which cannot necessarily be taught.
At 20,000-per-week, he is not exactly a player who burns the ends of your wage books and Wolves have more than enough leg room to offer him a lucrative deal. Grealish’s contract extends for another two seasons and a significant raise was in the talks earlier this week if the promotion is earned.
Some would say that the player has earned it, after spending much of his years with the club. Grealish is a product of the Claret and Blues academy, having joined the side when he was just 6.
He scored his first goal against Leicester City in the 3-2 loss in September 2015 and now he sits at a total tally of 9 along with 15 assists in over 100 senior team appearances. He has also been capped 7 times for the England U21 team and 19 times for the Republic of Ireland U17, U18 and U21 sides.
The midfielder is finally coming onto his strides and it would be wise to take up any chance of top-flight football. Wolves certainly have a game plan of not just surviving in the Premier League next season but to cement their presence there.
In case the move materialises, Grealish will be surrounded by young players such as himself at the Molineux right along with the fat stash of cash he will be banking every week. Maybe the time is now for him to quit his boyhood club and take a leap to the big leagues.
