Pundit drools at prospect of Klopp making ‘incredible’ £100m midfielder raid

Robbie Savage believes that Jack Grealish would be “incredible” at Liverpool if he made a stunning move to Anfield in the transfer window.

Aston Villa captain Grealish has enjoyed a significant rise in stock since the summer of 2019. After leading his side to Premier League survival last season, he has continued such form this term.

Indeed, he has scored five goals and assisted six others in the Premier League, with Villa performing admirably in the table. More crucially, though, he has earned his stripes on the international stage of late.

After questions about his suitability for England, he has earned three successive starts under Gareth Southgate.

Speaking to BT Sport (via the Daily Express), Savage believes that the midfielder could take Liverpool or Manchester City to the next level.

“He has got to be £100million in this transfer market,” the pundit said.

“No doubt about it. He has got to be £100 million. Imagine him with better players around him as well.

“Imagine him in a Man City team or Liverpool team. Incredible.”

Grealish’s value increased in the summer when the 25-year-old signed a bumper new deal at Villa Park. Indeed, that contract will protect his fee should teams come calling for a transfer.

However, the seamless transition to international football will see his value skyrocket further.

As for where he could move to, reports have suggested that Real Madrid have shown initial interest. Los Blancos boss Zinedine Zidane has supposedly ordered club scouts to keep track of his progress.

But while Manchester United were also keen before Grealish signed his new deal, the Red Devils now reportedly find themselves way down the pecking order.

As such, Firmino has now faced questions about the prospect of a rare battle to keep his place in the team.
