Big decision as £60 million Chelsea target Grealish on the move when summer opens up?
Aston Villa midfielder Conor Hourihane anticipates a tricky summer for Chelsea target Jack Grealish, with the midfielder set to make a decision on his future.
The 24-year-old is reportedly high on the transfer wishlist of Blues boss Frank Lampard, after an impressive league campaign for Villa in which he has registered seven goals and six assists.
Lampard knows that he needs to add a bit more quality and creativity to his midfield in the summer but is also looking to add value for money, and Grealish has made himself the perfect transfer target for the club.
Now amid the speculation, Hourihane believes Grealish will have a tough decision to make if he is to leave the West Midlands club, but his priority should be focusing on keeping them in the Premier League.
Hourihane told Sky Sports News: “Jack’s obviously hugely talented, he’s our talisman and he’s had a fantastic season. He’s been linked with so many clubs, lots of top teams around Europe.
“It’s going to be a tough summer and a tough decision for Jack. Hopefully, first and foremost, he keeps us up – that is the most important thing for the football club.
“And then, whatever Jack decides to do, that’s up to him. He deserves everything he gets. For me, he should be in the England squad as well because he has something that nobody else does, in my opinion.”
Grealish is certainly a player that has adapted to the Premier League this season with relative ease, so we would be signing a very gifted player if they manage to secure a transfer deal at the end of the season.
The decision could be quite easy, make the move to the Bridge as it would be the best thing for him and his career over the next few seasons
