Aston Villa should accept Jack Grealish offer, if Cameron Carter-Vickers comes the other way

Aston Villa may have to sell their star man this summer but should bring in an exchange player to build on.

It is being reported that Tottenham Hotspur are set to offer Aston Villa a £15 million take-it-or-leave-it offer for their star playmaker Jack Grealish. The Sun claims Daniel Levy is ready to test the financial worries at Villa Park, by making the move as a one-time offer.

Of course, Villa were hoping for much more in the sale of Grealish. Their star young talent, previous reports have put his asking price at around £40 million.

But considering their current financial woes, it will be hard for Villa not to accept the bid. However, given their current situation, Aston Villa should only accept a £15 million bid on one condition. It involves the addition of a player into the Tottenham deal as an exchange.

 

The player in question is Cameron Carter-Vickers. The American talent had two loan spells in the Championship last term, with Sheffield United and Ipswich Town. His future at Spurs once looked promising, but whether he has a long-term Spurs career now seems to be up in the air.

Aston Villa need a new centre-back. With John Terry and Chris Samba leaving, James Chester’s future in doubt and Axel Tuanzebe’s loan move finishing only the injured and out-of-favour Tommy Elphick remains.

Bringing in a player like Carter-Vickers would be one step toward the club’s rebuilding process. His wages would be manageable and he would fill a definite hole in the team.

Letting Grealish go is going to be hard for Aston Villa. Judging by recent reports, it seems the club is in serious financial peril. Eventually, the playmaker has to go and if they can get £15 million and a player to build the future on, it is a deal they might have to snap up.

    NO!We should not panic, plenty of other clubs would pay £15 million and we dont need any other add on’s to go on the pay roll, Spurs are trying it on, I’d rather we default on FFP and pay the fines rather than be conned by cockney spivs.

    £15m wouldn’t buy his left foot, do one. Sell him to a club like Chelsea or United who will happily pay what he’s worth
