Chelsea should make approach for Aston Villa playmaker Jack Grealish and beat Manchester United to his signature.
That’s the view of ex-Blues midfielder Alan Hudson, who rates 24-year-old Englishman as ‘the most outstanding attacking midfielder in the Premier League at the moment.
Grealish has found back of the net seven times in the English top-tier and provided five assists in a struggling Aston Villa side this campaign and has been strongly linked with a move away from Villa Park at the end of the season – whether his boyhood team remain in the Premier League or not.
There’s firm interest from Manchester United, however, there is expected to be plenty of competition for Jack Grealish, And Hudson has advised Frank Lampard to make sure they’re in the hunt to land him in order to fill the gap that has been left after the departure of Eden Hazard.
‘I am his biggest fan,’ Hudson told CaughtOffside.
‘Grealish is the most outstanding attacking midfield player in the game at this moment. A player who goes past people and scores goals.
‘The bottom line is Chelsea haven’t got anyone since (Eden) Hazard left who has the fans on the edge of their seats. Jack Grealish would be that man.’
