A number of Arsenal fans have expressed their desire to see Jack Grealish at the Emirates Stadium following the 24-year-old’s latest performance for Aston Villa.
While the Gunners haven’t been concretely linked with Grealish, a number of former Arsenal players have previously hinted for the club to consider moving for the creative attacker.
In March, Robert Pires told The Mirror that Grealish reminded him of Dennis Bergkamp and “would interest a lot of top clubs like (Manchester) United, Chelsea and Arsenal.”
Kevin Campbell, meanwhile, spoke to Metro in May about Grealish and Leicester City counterpart James Maddison, saying “these type of guys would improve Arsenal.”
The Villa captain has dazzled in the Premier League this season, building on from his superb work in the Championship last term as he helped the West Midlanders to promotion.
However, Grealish’s qualities sadly can’t make up for the team’s struggles elsewhere, and on Saturday they lost 1-0 to Wolves, their eighth game without a win.
Once again, the Englishman tried his hardest to make things happen but ended up cutting a frustrated figure by the end of another morale-sapping defeat.
With Villa sliding ever closer towards the relegation trap door, Grealish’s chances of staying at Villa Park grow slimmer every day – and some Arsenal fans want to take full advantage.
Here is what was said by the Gunners fanbase on social media:
Grealish is so wasted at Villa.

Maddison might be lined up for next summer but I can’t see us matching the valuation. Grealish would be my preference personally coz he’s a bit more versatile stylistically than Szo

We desperately need players that can play ahead of the ball between the lines in central areas who can receive on the half turn. Grealish can do that plus give G/A, he would be an amazing buy. Szo would also take a while to become the player we want him to be imo

grealish is the most likely out of these 3

Safe to say given aston villas next fixtures, they’re basically relegated. Can we snap up grealish from now?

Grealish’s face had ‘transfer request’ written all over it

I think it’s seriously worth a punt on Grealish but there are a few out their that would be great. We probably won’t get any of them anyway ??

Look at Grealish, mind You he is playing for a team in the relegation zone. Imagine if he played in a team that is ball dominant, and has better players.

Top class just surrounded by stinkers in the Villa squad

In a heartbeat

Why no one is talking about Grealish dunfounds me. He would be a perfect signing for Arsenal and wouldn’t cost that much if Villa go down
