Jack grealish is worth more to villa than 15m he's not replaceable at villa elsewhere he would be.

Reported Arsenal target Jack Grealish is the subject of a unique bid from Chelsea, according to TEAMTalk.

Grealish remaining at Villa Park appears unlikely, though, with the player entering the last two years of his contract and Villa failing to get him to sign an extension midway through last season.

The England Under-21 global has attracted interest from the Premier League with TeamTalk claiming that Arsenal, Tottenham and Chelsea are among a host of clubs to have expressed their interest this summer.

Given Aston Villa's failure to gain promotion back to the Premier League, and their subsequent financial issues, it is widely accepted that Grealish will be leaving this summer.

Villa had initially slapped a £40million price tag on Grealish's head; however, due to their current battle with HMRC, Spurs may be able to negotiate a cheaper deal which makes the prospect of Grealish coming to North London even more likely.

That bid falls short of Villa's £40m valuation but the report says Chelsea are willing to send the midfielder back on loan to the Midland's club for the 2018/19 campaign before linking up with them in 12 months time.

It's Tottenham who have made their move first, though.
