Sky Sports News are reporting that Leicester City are considering a move for Jack Grealish. The TV station say their sources are telling them that we will only be looking to sell our no.10 for £40m.

Manchester United and Arsenal are also believed to be monitoring Jack’s situation but it seems as though the Foxes are the leading candidate for the midfielder.

Fans on Twitter are debating whether £40m is a fair price for the 22-year-old:

Verdict:

As I said in a piece yesterday, considering the lack of other options to make up the £30m -£40m shortfall in our finances, the sale of Grealish has to be considered.

Nobody wants it to happen but if Leicester do offer up a large slice of their funds from the £60m sale of Riyad Mahrez to Manchester City, we will have to listen to their offer.

The final decision would still be up to the player though, and I don’t envy the choice he would have to make.

  • To Xia, a good chairman, clears out the failures in any company starting with Steve Bruce
    He then appoints a new coach. Why the long delay, the fans need strong ruthless decisions.
    Three coaches to replace Bruce, Garcia,Wenger, Smith. Avfc must find a new proper structure .
    The silence must end,Xia Wyness ,where are you ????

    • Yeah I agree, wonder how much Bruce is on per week? And isn’t Bruce on a “rolling contract” because he was hoping to get the England job? Anyway be better if he goes, I’d rather have MacDonald in charge at least he knows the U23 lads and wont be frightened to play them, he might be on better terms with McCormack too, last time he did the caretaker manager job the team played well and there were calls for him to stay on but he declined however he would do a good job until we got Dean Smith or A.N. Other.

    • And just what salary do you think Wenger would want? Its never going to happen in a million years. Garcia? if that’s Oscar his last 2 jobs he’s been sacked within 5 months both times.

  • If Mahrez has gone for £60 million, no chance that Grealish is worth £40 million – £20 million at best.

  • As Xhia said, hes a businessman first, football fan second, he’ll sell Grealish, Chester, Adomah and the ground before he’s out of pocket.

  • Well I’ve read reports today valuing Jack between £4.5M and £40M so no idea what we can realistically get for him. £40m we would be crazy to turn down, anything less than £20M may not be worth it.

  • He’s a liability, his shot’s are about has powerful has a spud gun, and fowls far too often. 15mil max. they’re better players else where. Don’t want him.
