Palace lining up Grealish

23rd April 2019, 11:07 by Tom Hill

Crystal Palace will look to sign Aston Villa ace Jack Grealish if they lose Wilfried Zaha this summer, according to reports in England.

Zaha continues to be linked with a move away from Selhurst Park, with Manchester United and Tottenham both chasing his signature.

Palace chiefs are open to letting Zaha leave as long as they receive close to their £80million valuation.

Eagles boss Roy Hodgson is hoping a big fee could bankroll a squad overhaul as he looks to push his team towards mid-table in the Premier League.

Any money received would go towards a replacement and the Daily Mail claim Grealish is top of their wishlist.

Tottenham failed with a move for him last summer but the Birmingham-born star continues to be linked with a switch to the top flight.

He has recently returned from injury to help Villa start a 10-match winning run, which has seen them climb to fifth in the Championship.

Palace will be hoping Villa fail to get promoted, with the West Midlands outfit set to keep hold of the 23-year-old if they return to the promised land.
