- Jack Grealish could be on his way to Premier League giants Manchester City
- The Citizens are trying to bolster their squad for their campaign next season
- Grealish has been superb this term for Aston Villa in the English topflight
Jack Grealish who is the captain of Aston Villa has reportedly emerged as a target for current Premier League leaders Manchester City and they would move for him at the end of the season.
So far this season in the Premier League, Jack Grealish is one of the best-attacking midfielders considering his superb performances for Aston Villa in all competitions.
According to the report on UK Sun, Manchester City want to use Brazilian star Douglas Luiz as leverage to lure Jack Grealish to the Etihad stadium in the coming summer.
The Citizens sold the Brazilian midfielder to Aston Villa two years ago with an option of them buying the player again.
But as things stand presently, Manchester City could allow Luiz to stay at Aston Villa so as to help them in their pursuit to get Jack Grealish.
Man City boss Pep Guardiola is said to be a big fan of the 25-year-old England international and would love to see him in his squad next season.
Currently, Pep Guardiola's squad is well-stocked in both midfield and the wide areas where the Villa ace normally plays.
Guardiola’s priority with the money he has available this summer is likely to be a new striker and possibly a specialist left-back.
Meanwhile, Man City are currently occupying first position on the Premier League table with 71 points, while Aston Villa occupy ninth on the standings.
