The transfer insider discussed a potential incoming to Aston Villa this summer in the form of Leon Bailey from Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen.
Are Villa preparing for Grealish's potential exit?
Discussing Villa’s potential approach for the Jamaican forward, Romano had the following to say.
“I won’t say [the deal is] in progress, but Villa are now in direct contact with Bayer Leverkusen to reach an agreement.
“So we will see, he’s the main target. We will see, it’s not in an advanced stage.”
TIF Thoughts on Villa’s summer spending…
So far, Villa have purchased Argentine Emiliano Buendía from Norwich City in a deal believed to be worth in the region of £34.56m (via Transfermarkt).
With this in mind, it makes us question whether Dean Smith’s side are preparing for the potential sale of Jack Grealish this summer, with the 25-year-old heavily linked to a possible move to Manchester City – or Villa would face the prospect of leaving a major summer signing out of the team on a regular basis.
