PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Former Aston Villa midfielder Paul Merson thinks his old side's captain, Jack Grealish, should be a transfer target for Barcelona. Grealish is enjoying a fine campaign, with seven goals and 12 assists to his name in all competitions with Villa threatening to finish in the top half of the Premier League and potentially qualify for European competition after a decade away. The England international, whose fine performances this campaign earned him his debut for Gareth Southgate's side in September, has already bettered his contribution to Villa goals last season (18) with 16 games of the campaign remaining. Grealish was heavily linked with a move to Manchester United last season but Villa convinced him to stay and kick on with his boyhood club, signing a new contract that will keep him at Villa Park until 2025.

"I think if I’m a manager at one of the big boys and no disrespect to Villa here but if you’re looking to go through your career and try and win something I’m looking at £120 or 130 million for him I would pay. "I watched Barcelona the other night get ripped to shreds, if I’m Barcelona I’m buying him tomorrow morning it doesn’t matter how much it is "I’m buying Grealish because Grealish at the Nou Camp would absolutely rip it up."
