Speculation, this morning, suggests that Chelsea may have stolen a march on the other Premier League clubs looking to sign the talented Aston Villa player, Jack Grealish.

The 22-year-old is widely tipped to leave Villa Park this summer as the Championship club contemplate streamlining their financial situation.

Although Aston Villa value the player at around the £40 million mark, the news source, Teamtalk, are implying that Chelsea may be set to strike a deal, said to be of the magnitude of £30 million for the player.

Seemingly, Chelsea are willing to sign the player this summer but allow Grealish to remain at his beloved Aston Villa for a further twelve months before finally coming to Stamford Bridge.

If that is the case, Chelsea’s approach could see the ambitions of Tottenham, Arsenal, Everton, West Ham and Newcastle quashed.

Here at Vital Chelsea, we applaud the move for the 22-year-old who showcased his skills in the recent Championship Play-Off Final, against Fulham, at Wembley. His direct running, allied with his superb close control of the ball, would give Chelsea something extra in the middle of the park. The fee quoted, £30 million, is also realistic considering his age and ambition and is on a par with fees Chelsea paid out last season.

Now whether the deal can be completed remains to be seen, but here at Vital Chelsea, we’ll keep an eye open and report back further if the need arises.

  • I am sorry what my fellow Villan was trying to say is – £30m + Grealish on loan for 2018-19 + first refusal if you ever want to loan him out or sell him on + Gary Cahill. If you can do all that then the boy is yours!

  • Can’t see that myself, don’t see the benefit for Chelsea for a start. That’s a lot of money to just send back!

  • i will genuinely weep when or if he leaves,,,
    for chelsea fans,,,, he was a kid just returning from injury and 5 years of turmoil
    since his injury he beefed up and bears no resemblance to the kid of last year
    he is transformed and playing in a very defensive bruce side,,,
    he needs to improve so needs to play,, another season in the championship will be very beneficial to him
    at his stage of development,,,
    but what a player he will become,,,,,,
    i think terry wants him at chelsea,,,

  • Chelsea should use this transfer window well to purchase some good players
