Tottenham Hotspur have made a £15m bid to sign Aston Villa playmaker Jack Grealish ahead of Chelsea FC, according to a report in England.

Sky Sports News is reporting that Spurs have launched a bid to sign the promising Aston Villa starlet in the summer transfer window.

The same article states that Tottenham have put together an initial offer of £15m in the hope the Championship side will accept the offer to ease their financial crisis.

According to a report in the British media on Tuesday evening, Chelsea FC were set to make a £30m offer to sign Grealish to bolster their options in the middle of the park.

The 22-year-old scored five goals in 39 games in the Championship last season as Aston Villa missed out on promotion to the Premier League following a loss to Fulham in the playoff finals.

Grealish has three years of experience in the Premier League before the Birmingham side were demoted to the second tier of English football in 2016.

The playmaker has been a controversial figure on and off the pitch in the early stages of his Villa career.

Grealish initially played for the Republic of Ireland Under-21 side before he switched allegiances to England following months of speculation.
