Why Jack Grealish must take his career to the next level by moving to the Premier League
Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish is starting to make a real name for himself in England. The attacking midfielder has been impressive for the Villans over the last two seasons. Steve Bruce’s side are unbeaten in the Championship in the ongoing campaign so far, playing an attractive brand of football.
The Villans drew 2-2 against Brentford at Villa Park and once again, Jack Grealish put in a commanding performance. Deployed as a central attacking midfielder, Grealish has registered 1 assist in 5 second-tier appearances this season.
The 22-year-old has emerged as one of the brightest young English players in the country. The midfielder must now aim to make a move to the Premier League in order to take his career to the next step. Furthermore, Grealish possesses all the qualities to flourish in a top team.
The midfielder is calm and composed on the ball, often using his creative nous to unlock defences. Grealish is adept at controlling the ball and boasts of incredible dribbling attributes as well. He can comfortably take on defenders in the final third.
In the game against Brentford, Grealish was a menace outside the box, often beating the defenders before playing in striker Jonathan Kodjia. He is excellent at getting out of tight situations and holding onto the ball.
The youngster is also a slick passer, averaging a pass success rate of 85.9% in the league so far. He is comfortable playing both short passes and long balls as well. Any Premier League side would love to have a player of his vision and calibre.
Grealish is also versatile enough to play in a number of systems and formations. Under Steve Bruce, the midfielder is often deployed in a 4-4-1-1 formation, sitting behind the striker. He is also capable of slotting into a left-wing role in a 4-3-3 formation. What’s even more appealing about the player is his work rate and willingness to track back to support the defence.
There’s no chance for the Villa midfielder to earn his move now since the Premier League transfer window has shut. But come January, Grealish must choose to move to England’s top-tier. He is ready to take up a new challenge and moving to the Premier League will help the youngster unleash his full potential.
