Liverpool have been tipped to sign Aston Villa man-of-the-moment Jack Grealish.
That is according to just-retired defender Alex Bruce, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the high-level interest in the playmaker.
Another of our columnists Alan Hutton, who spent many years playing alongside Grealish at Villa, told Football Insider this week that the 24-year-old is thinking about quitting his boyhood club for a bigger team.
Bruce, the 35-year-old son of Newcastle United manager Steve Bruce and who has just hung up his boots after a year at Kilmarnock in the SPL, named the runaway Premier League leaders as one of three giants he could join.
“Personally I think one of the big boys will come in for him – a Man City, a Man
United, a Liverpool – it wouldn’t surprise me if one of those boys came and really test Villa [with a bid] and pay the money for him to sign,” Bruce told Football Insider.
“He was talked about going to Spurs two years ago, I personally believe if Jack wants to go and fulfill his potential, go and win trophies, become an England regular, I think he needs to take that next step and go and join one of the big boys.”
Grealish has taken his game to a new level following Villa’s return to the Premier League this season.
In 27 appearances across all competitions, the playmaker has registered nine assists and seven goals, performing at a consistently high level while also scoring a series of technically brilliant goals.
He has a Villa contract that runs until the summer of 2023.
