Grealish link reappears after Villa’s ace’s return

Transfers
Jack Grealish, Carlos Soler and Jarrod Bowen are reported to be on Tottenham Hotspur's summer transfer hitlist.

Jack Grealish, Carlos Soler and Jarrod Bowen are reported to be on Tottenham Hotspur’s summer transfer hitlist.

The Mirror claim Spurs, who haven’t signed a senior player for over a year, are eyeing five new signings this summer with boss Mauricio Pochettino wanting a left-back, a central defender and a striker among other new recruits.

Grealish was the main target last summer when Aston Villa dug their heels in over the price – so the move never happened, but the young Englishman’s current form has put him firmly back in favour in north London.

The report claims Pochettino could be in need of a creative midfielder because Real Madrid target Christian Eriksen will soon enter the final 12 months of his deal and increasingly looks set to leave.

And the Mirror also list Toby Alderweireld as one of the other senior figures who could be off to make way for an influx of fresh blood.

Valencia’s Soler is an option, according to the Daily Mail, while several sources indicate Hull City forward Bowen remains on Spurs’ radar.
