In a recent report, Fichajes has claimed that Chelsea are locked in a three-way battle for Aston Villa playmaker Jack Grealish this summer. It is understood that the Blues have joined the race to land the English talent with Thomas Tuchel desperate to strengthen his squad ahead of the new campaign (via Fichajes).
Grealish’s Terrific Form At Villa Park Last Season
Grealish enjoyed a brilliant season with the West Midlands giants recently as he continued to flourish as the most influential member of Dean Smith’s frontline. The 25-year-old has banged in seven goals and provided 12 assists in 27 matches for the Villans last season across all competitions.
The Birmingham-born sensation has given a good account of himself in both halves after he averaged 1.2 tackles, 0.5 interceptions 1.9 shots, 3.1 key passes, 0.7 crosses and 2.5 dribbles per game in the 2020-21 Premier League campaign. Grealish has even been tidy with his ball distribution based on his pass completion rate of 83.3% in the English top tier (stats via whoscored).
The seven-time England international has nothing left to prove at Villa Park, so he could be tempted with the opportunity to join the Blues as he would have a realistic chance of competing for some major trophies at the top level.
What Will The Three Lions Star Add To Thomas Tuchel’s Team?
Grealish has established himself as a consistent performer in the Premier League by scoring or creating goals regularly in the attacking end of the field. He is a deceptively quick wide player who loves to cut in to get a powerful and precise shot in on-target. The English attacker can also get to the by-line and deliver some inviting crosses into the opposition penalty box. He can keep possession moving out of tight spaces without breaking a sweat and works hard for his team off the ball as well.
An accomplished leader like Grealish will undeniably be a brilliant addition to Thomas Tuchel’s match-day squad this summer if Chelsea can convince the player to seal a move to the English capital. At 25, the Villans skipper could potentially improve his offensive numbers in the coming seasons when he hits the peak stage of his playing career. Hence, we can expect Tuchel to get the best out of Grealish if he manages to win the race for his services.
The England international will add plenty of goals and creativity to the Blues frontline that sometimes struggled to be prolific in the final third towards the back end of last season. All in all, recruiting Grealish could help the West London outfit maintain their stranglehold in European football and even challenge for the Premier League title in the years to come.
