Tottenham have made an offer of £15million for Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish.
Manager Mauricio Pochettino believes Grealish’s skill and high energy fits the profile he wants for his squad and the 22-year-old is keen on developing alongside the likes of Dele Alli and Harry Kane.
Grealish has plenty of interest from other Premier League clubs including Leicester City, Everton and West Ham but his preference is understood to be Tottenham.

And Spurs have attempted to beat their rivals to his signature with an early offer of £15m, according to Sky Sports.
The Championship side’s perilous financial position has left them vulnerable to offers for their best players.
However, Tottenham are likely to be rebuffed with Villa remaining defiant that they will not sell for under their market value, Grealish given a seemingly high valuation of £40m.
The north London outfit believe that is unrealistic and are anticipating that price will come down as pressure mounts on their finances.
Grealish remaining at Villa Park appears unlikely, regardless, 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.
