Chelsea has reportedly joined the race to sign Aston Villa captain and midfield maestro, Jack Grealish this summer. Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchel has been a long-time admirer of the English midfielder, and the blues seem to be favorites in securing the £100m signing of Jack Grealish from Aston Villa.Manchester United and Manchester City have also been linked to signing the player since last summer, but surprisingly he extended his contract with Villa, he was also very instrumental with their brilliant performance last season, both United and City may lose out on the opportunity to sign the English Midfielder to UEFA Champions League winners, Chelsea. Thomas Tuchel will be looking to strengthen his Chelsea squad this summer after winning the UEFA Champions League last season, Tuchel would also be looking to spend big in securing the services of the best players.The 25-year old player has scored 7 goals and produced 10 assists that led to goals for Aston Villa last season, though he sustained a knee injury towards the end of the 2020/2021 season, he has since recovered fully from the injury, Grealish is known to be lethal in midfield and has been consistent in the past two seasons, though his market value is £58m, it has been reported that Aston Villa will want much more than that for their priced asset it is believed that the club has set his asking price at £100m, and are not willing to drop the price because the English Midfielder only signed a new contract with the club in September last year keeping him at the club till 2025.Chelsea have been reported to be ahead of Manchester City and United in the race to sign Jack Grealish and he would be considered as the right replacement for Ziyech who seems to have fallen out of favor with coach Thomas Tushel, Ziyech has suffered little playing time under Tuchel and is rumored to be one of the players that will leave the club in the summer, and Grealish who already has English Premier League experience will easily adapt into the Chelsea team.Though Jack Grealish was initially linked with a £100m move to Manchester City, reports have it that Chelsea is set to hijack the deal and secure the signing of the Aston Villa captain, and this has come as a surprise to many who may have thought that Chelsea’s focus in this transfer window was to secure the services of a true center forward and a defender.
