The battle to sign Jack Grealish in the summer transfer window is intensifying. The London giants are the latest entrants in pursuit of England international, who is also being courted by Liverpool and Man City. Jack is widely regarded as one of the best players in the PL, having played a pivotal role in Aston Villa’s ascent in recent years.
His incredible progress has also helped him earn a spot in the English national side, and Jack is now ready to play a role in England’s campaign at UEFA Euro 2020. The recently-concluded club campaign proved to be somewhat difficult for Grealish, who suffered a knee injury that put him out of action for a few months.
However, he still managed a superb tally of 7 goals and 12 assists in 27 games across all tournaments. Such numbers have captured the attention of the who’s who in the PL, with Chelsea, Liverpool and Man City interested.
The Blues are the latest entrants in the race to sign Jack, which is hardly surprising considering the uncertain future that Hakim Ziyech is facing at the London club. If the Moroccan attacker does end up leaving, Chelsea would need a replacement in the creative department, which is where Jack comes in.
As for Liverpool, Jack could potentially play one of two roles in Jurgen Klopp’s side. Grealish could either be a long-term replacement for Georginio Wijnaldum, seeing as he is adept at reprising the no.8 role. Alternatively, he could provide competition to Mane on the left flank, following what was largely a season to forget for Senegal international.
