In an exclusive interview with Football Insider, Pundit Noel Whelan has said Jack Grealish is a very gifted player and has a great potential to Christian Eriksen at Spurs this summer.
He has also said that Grealish is has all the qualities to play for a big Premier League clubs, including Tottenham.
“He is special,” said Whelan. “That’s why Tottenham wanted to buy him and why Aston Villa wanted to keep him. Can they keep him if they don’t get the promotion? It’s only a matter of time before he goes to a bigger club, and I wouldn’t be surprised if it is Spurs this summer.
“I think he could be Eriksen’s replacement. He demonstrated his character in the Birmingham derby and has a touch of magic to his game, although he needs to add more goals.
“Grealish has proved himself in the Championship but needs to prove he can do it in the Premier League. Someone like Eriksen does it year in, year out. He is a gamechanger who wins matches with his creativity and scores his fair share of goals as well.
“Grealish can take over the mantle, and it’s no wonder Spurs want to sign him, but he must deliver more consistently.”
Grealish is only 23-year-old and has represented his boyhood club for 137 times.
