Fulham have joined the race for Villa star Jack Grealish, with the highly-rated midfielder looking very likely to leave Villa Park this season.

West London Sport report that the midfielder is a target for Fulham, who beat Villa in the Championship playoff final at Wembley.

Fulham have taken an interest in the midfielder, amid Villa’s widely reported financial problems, which could see Grealish sold this Summer.

Norwich’s James Maddison is also a reported target for Fulham, who are looking to strengthen their options in the position.

However, Fulham would face competition for Grealish, with numerous clubs such as Spurs, Newcastle and Leicester all looking at the young midfielder.

Grealish has emerged as one of Villa’s top prospects and key stars, with the midfielder being a crucial part in taking Villa to the playoff final. However, with big money being talked about, Villa could be forced to sell Grealish to keep themselves afloat.
