Tottenham Hotspur are the firm favourites to sign Jack Grealish from Aston Villa this summer, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Mirror is reporting that the 22-year-old has made the decision to leave Villa Park this summer, alerting a host of Premier League clubs to his situation.

According to the same story, Tottenham are firmly leading the Premier League race to sign the midfielder this summer following his decision to quit Aston Villa.

However, the article also claims that the north London club are yet to open the bidding on a move for Grealish, as Spurs chairman Daniel Levy looks to capitalise on Villa’s financial woes.

Liverpool FC have been credited with an interest, but the article says that the Reds are unlikely to bid for Grealish this summer.

According to the same story, Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino wants Grealish to compete with Dele Alli behind Harry Kane in the Spurs set-up.

The report says that Grealish has accepted that he will have to leave his boyhood club this summer after Aston Villa failed to gain promotion to the Premier League.

Tottenham are looking to assemble a squad capable of challenging for the Premier League title next season after they finished third and without a trophy last term.

Indeed, the Lilywhites are yet to win silverware under Pochettino, and they were beaten in the FA Cup semi-finals by Manchester United last season.
