Grealish to Spurs? Hutton sees potential despite financial hurdles

Tottenham Hotspur are looking to make some marquee signings in the upcoming summer transfer window, and Manchester City star Jack Grealish could be on his way to White Hart Lane, per Transfer Insider.

The North Londoners have made massive progress under Ange Postecoglou, and Daniel Levy & Co. will look to ensure that his progress on the pitch is backed by the market as the Spurs project comes into its own this off-season. The Lilywhites have gone from one of the struggling big six to one of the most promising teams in all of Europe, which is a massive turnaround, and Spurs would be looking to build on this in the summer.

Former Tottenham defender Alan Hutton, in his exclusive interview with Football Insider, spoke about the former Aston Villa star moving on from City and a probable move to Spurs.

Manchester City officials are actively reconsidering the England international’s future at Etihad Stadium, viewing him as a potential source of funds for this summer’s transfer window. Moreover, his limited use by Pep Guardiola foretells a possible exit.

“I think the number ten role is somewhere Grealish could play at Tottenham. If Maddison isn’t available or isn’t on form, you need backup, and he could come in.

“But, from what I know, it comes down to money. Man City paid £100m, and I was at Villa when Daniel Levy wasn’t willing to spend £20m to bring him from the Championship.

“He’s 28 now, but they’ll still want a substantial fee. Grealish goes in and makes all teams better when he’s on form and playing at the top level. I think he may well be happy where he is for the moment.”

He makes a fair point about the potential financials involved, which could force Spurs hands into not spilling the cash for Grealish’s services.
