Arsenal tipped to make transfer approach for ‘amazing’ Jack Grealish

Former Arsenal star Gilberto Silva has urged the Gunners to sign Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish.

The 25-year-old has been in excellent form this season, netting four goals and providing six assists in Villa's opening seven Premier League fixtures, with Dean Smith's side currently sixth in the table.

Grealish has also broken into Gareth Southgate's England squad and Silva believes he could offer Arsenal something that they are currently missing.

Speaking to The Invisible Wall Podcast, Silva said: "Grealish, amazing. It seems like he could be a player that Arsenal missed. With his ability, he was one of the guys in the middle who can play beautiful football.

"He controls the ball, assists and can score goals. He is slightly different from Dennis Bergkamp, but he could be somebody for the future at Arsenal."

Grealish recently starred against the Gunners, assisting Ollie Watkins' second goal in Villa's 3-0 win at the Emirates before the international break.

His display impressed Arsenal star Bukayo Saka, who praised his England team-mate while on international duty.

"He's a top player," Saka said. "When I came here the first time he was the player who impressed me the most in training.

"Before we played against Villa at the weekend we analysed him and picked him out as one of their main threats and he showed it in the game.

"He was amazing from start to finish, so it's going to be good to play with him and not against him this week."
