Tottenham Hotspur have been installed ahead of Leicester City as the new favourites to sign Aston Villa winger Jack Grealish, based on Sky Bet’s bookies during this summer transfer window.
Grealish, 22, was in contention for Villa two weeks ago as they were beaten 1-0 by Fulham at Wembley in the Championship play-off final.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side have reportedly registered interest in signing the winger despite facing keen competition from Premier League rivals West Ham United and the Foxes.
Bases on the above-mentioned bookies, Spurs have become the favourite to sign the winger and are priced at 1/1, even though the main stumbling block in regards to a possible deal for him would be the Championship giants’ £40million asking price.
The largely inexperienced midfielder reportedly has two years left on his current deal with Championship club, had once been linked with a top Premier League club during his first season with Villa prior to their top flight relegation.
