Gary Mabbutt claims Tottenham don’t need to sign Jack Grealish

Speaking to Football FanCast, as relayed by Football.london, former Tottenham Hotspur defender Gary Mabbutt has insisted that the club have no need to try and sign Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish at the moment.

One of the most in-form players in England, the 25-year-old Grealish had been heavily linked with a move to a host of top club in the past, including Tottenham Hotspur. (h/t Football.london)

However, the Englishman has stayed put at Villa Park and has helped Dean Smith’s side make a great start to the season. Indeed, Grealish has scored five goals and set up six more in nine matches across all competitions already in 2020/21.

In addition, the 25-year-old was a standout performer for the England national team in the last international break as well. Mabbutt, however, is of the opinion that Tottenham no longer have the need to sign the Aston Villa academy product as there is enough quality in the squad already. (h/t Football.london)

“Yes, I’m not saying he’s someone we should be going after now.”

Tottenham enjoyed an impressive summer transfer window that saw us bring in some quality players like Gareth Bale, Sergio Reguilon, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Gareth Bale along with Joe Rodon and Carlos Vinicius.

And while it is true that there is plenty of quality within the ranks already, not pushing for Grealish, should he become available would be folly.

The 25-year-old is one of the most exciting players in the country at the moment. He has shown that he can score and assist in equal measure, while his positional versatility would offer the manager flexibility in terms of squad dynamics as well.

While the need for Grealish might not be imminent, a player of his quality would invariably enhance the standard of the whole team. So, if a chance does present itself in the future, Tottenham would stand to benefit by making a move.
