Opinion: Forget Grealish, Tottenham should sign this excellent PL midfielder

Tottenham Hotspur fans will hope that Daniel Levy invests in the playing squad this summer and helps Jose Mourinho in the quest for silverware in 2020-21 (assuming it goes ahead!).

Once silly season approaches, it is only a matter of time before the Jack Grealish to Spurs rumours start rumbling again – and understandably so given the playmaker’s form this term and his undoubted ability.

However, with Tottenham having Gio Lo Celso to occupy the creative role in the starting XI, another Aston Villa man could well be an ideal addition to sort out the midfield dynamic in North London.

John McGinn’s performances in a struggling Aston Villa team were notable earlier this season, before a serious ankle injury has kept him out of action for the last few months.

The Scotland international scored against Tottenham on the first day of the season and has proven himself more than good enough for the Premier League.

With McGinn being linked with the likes of Everton and Leicester this week, why are Tottenham not in there as a potential destination for the all-action star?

Spurs miss Mousa Dembele and filling his shoes is an unenviable task.

However, McGinn would bring bite to the Tottenham midfield, infectious energy and an ability to burst forward from the centre of the park.

Before the transfer merry-go-round starts in earnest, Daniel Levy should forget about Grealish – that boat has sailed – and pull out the stops to sign McGinn instead.
