Man City Transfer News: Fabrizio Romano update on “serious target”

According to renowned journalist Fabrizio Romano, Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish is a top target for Manchester City this summer.

New reports from Football Insider declared that Grealish has reached an agreement on personal terms with Man City as his purposed exit edges ever-closer.

The report revealed that the 25-year-old has been offered a ‘huge’ contract by City, although there is still some way to go before a deal can be agreed between the two sides.

Romano reaffirmed Man City’s interest in Grealish, alleging that the maestro is a top target for the Citizens and suggests the Premier League champions are in contact with Aston Villa.

Speaking on the Here We Go Podcast, Romano said, “Jack Grealish is another priority for Manchester City. He’s not a plan B, he’s a priority. He’s a top, top target for Manchester City.

“He’s on the list, he’s always been on the list. They are in contact with people close to the player, they are in contact with Aston Villa. And so, Jack Grealish is a serious, serious target.”

According to WhoScored, Grealish was the Premier League’s third best performer last term with a rating of 7.56, behind Kevin De Bruyne and England teammate Harry Kane.

The creative midfielder made 2.5 dribbles per league game and provided 3.1 key passes each match for his side last season – the second most of any player in England’s top flight.

In terms of goal contributions, Grealish netted six goals and registered 10 assists in 26 appearances for Aston Villa.

Despite his remarkable numbers, one slight cause for concern would be over his injury record last season as he missed 12 matches due to injuries, equating to 80 days on the sidelines.

Man City predominantly played in a 4-3-3 formation last term which would suggest that Grealish would feature from the left flank with the ability to cut inside.

Although, should Pep Guardiola want to change his shape next term, the 25-year-old has also frequently featured as an attacking midfielder in the middle of the park.

His attacking versatility could be a valuable asset for the Spanish coach because it could give him the chance to change his system within games.

Grealish would unquestionably be a strong addition to any team and if he does indeed join the Citizens this summer, then the side should be favorites once again to lift the Premier League title.
