Mike Arteta has always wanted a ball playing center back, now he has one and the next question will be who’s next to come in through the Emirates door? Arsenal is in dire need of an attacking midfielder, will they bring one in soon enough?
City tables mega bid for Grealish

The 3Lions midfielder was instrumental to Villa’s run last season and also played a bit part in England’s run to the final of the European championship where they bagged silver medal, losing to Italy at Wembley in the final. We await Villa’s decision on the bid.

Southampton reject Villa’s bid for JWP
It’s all happening at Aston Villa at the moment and the new story is that Southampton has rejected a £25m bid for James Ward Prowse, it’s obvious that the West Midlands side are trying to replace Jack Grealish who is bound for the Etihad.
Villa are somewhat stubborn and will definitely go again with another bid but what exactly will interest the Saints to sell their captain? 50m?
