‘Aston Villa’s Grealish would walk into Liverpool’s side’

Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish would get into Liverpool’s current side, according to pundit Andy Gray.

The 24-year-old has six goals and five assists for Villa in 20 Premier League appearances this term and speculation has linked him with a move away from Villa Park.

Meanwhile, Liverpool are on course to comfortably win the Premier League title with the gap to second-placed Manchester City now 14 points.

And former Aston Villa player Gray thinks Grealish is “better” than Naby Keita and Georginio Wijnaldum.

“I know he’s a Villa fan, his family are all Villa fans, he loves the club and he loves being captain,” Gray told Bein Sports. “But Jack’s 24 now and I think there is a decision coming at the end of this season. And I hate to say it, but I don’t think he’ll be there in August.

“If I was a coach of any of the top-six, and I include Liverpool in this, he would make the team better. He is, in my opinion, better than any of Liverpool’s midfield players.


“I think is better than Keita. I think he’s better than Wijnaldum. I think he’d get into the City side. He’s much better than Foden. I just think he’s that good.

“When you give someone a football. You watch somebody on a football pitch. He has a football at his feet and in his control. Special players, they just stand out.

“He might make mistakes, Jack, and he’s only 24. But the ball is part of his body. He moves with it beautifully. He has a goal in him. He creates for other players. He works hard.

“He’d walk into Spurs’ side. At Chelsea, I know they talk about Mason Mount but I think right now he’s better than Mason Mount. If he’s getting sold this summer then I guarantee you that a host of the biggest clubs will be after him.”
