The new premier league season is just four weeks away and many clubs are looking at ways to improve their squad. Tottenham are not making resting on their pursuit for a silverware as they are also actively preparing for the new season.
One of the several additions Mauricio Pochettino is looking at adding to the team is Aston Villa 22 year old Jack Grealish. The young midfielder is set to join the club if a fee of £20m can be agreed before the close of the window.
Spurs is set to return to White Hart Lane after playing the whole of last season home fixtures at Wembley. The return will mark the beginning of new era at the club and young players like Grealish are seen to be the kind of players to lead Spurs to their next title. Grealish plays as an attacking midfielder and also as a winger.
While at Aston Villa before they were relegated three seasons ago, despite a young age, he was able to distinguish himself out in that squad. His swift transitioning from defense to attack is just one that is so sumptuous to watch.
Tottenham need a strong squad with depth and this is kind of player they need. One who will challenge for the starting shirt with anyone, a player hat is not afraid to fight for his place in the team. With 92 caps for Aston Villa, he is mature and have gained massive experience while playing on loan at Nott County. The opportunity to move to a top six club is one he will grab with both hands.
Jack coming to Spurs makes the attacking position which is almost locked down by Dele Alli an open contest. One thing Spurs have missed is the absence of top class competition from other players except from the academy graduates who are sometimes brought to the team just to watch how the first team plays.
Grealish is an established player which means that he will definitely want to make his mark known as early as possible.
The prospect of learning under the tutelage of Pochettino is an extra reason why this could be the season for Spurs. The argentine gaffer has helped the likes of Harry Kane and Dele Alli develop to a level which everyone now sees them among the best in their positions.
Grealish being a player that have got experience in the premier league before going down, he will definitely before hit the ground rolling. This might be the jigsaw to Tottenham winning their first trophy in over a decade.
