Liverpool Set Their Sights On 22 Y/O Aston Villa Attacker: Just The Man Klopp Needs?

Liverpool have turned their eyes towards Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish after the Championship outfit reduced their asking price to almost half of its original value, which was at £40m. Steve Bruce has been notified that he will not be able to bring in any players unless he sells one of his current assets soon enough.

The Villans are undergoing a severe financial crisis as revealed by the club’s owner, Tony Xia. While many of the club’s star players are expected to be sold off to help stabilize operations ahead of the 2018/19 campaign, Grealish seemingly might fetch the Birmingham outfit the highest amount.

Grealish is a prime attacking talent whose contract with Villa only lasts for another 2 seasons. Despite facing an issue with his kidney, he scored 3 goals and created 8 assists in 34 appearances in the last campaign to help the Claret and Blues seal a passage into the finals of the Championship playoffs.

Unfortunately, Steve Bruce could not overcome the attacking threat of Fulham and lost out on top-flight promotion by a single goal. Grealish played a key part throughout the season and was able to showcase his development right from the youth ranks of the club’s academy.

The Englishman made his professional debut in January 2015 against Blackpool in the FA Cup third round game. He scored his first goal in the 3-2 loss against Leicester City in September 2015.

Now, the 22-year-old has over 100 senior team appearances for Villa and is touted as one of the best attacking midfielders in the entire second division. Grealish was born in the West Midlands itself but represented the Republic Of Ireland at the international stage when he was young.

He was called up for international duty when he was 14 and later racked up 19 caps for Ireland’s U17, U18 and U21 teams. The youngster switched his allegiance to England on the advice of Roy Hodgson in August 2015 and now has 7 caps to his name for the Three Lions U21 side.

His playmaking abilities are improving with each passing game and will be warmly welcomed at Anfield. Jurgen Klopp is well aware of the gap that needs to be filled up at Anfield since the departure of Philippe Coutinho in January.

The Reds need that prime attacking talent to act as a barrier between the final third and the rest of the team. While the German head coach has already acquired Fabinho and Naby Keita so far in this summer window, he is still set to miss Alex Oxlade Chamberlain for a long period of time.
