Aston Villa set to ramp up Todd Cantwell transfer chase to replace Man City-bound Jack Grealish after £100m move

ASTON VILLA are set to make a move for Norwich star Todd Cantwell to replace Manchester City-bound Jack Grealish, according to reports.

Dean Smith’s side are set to lose their skipper, with the Premier League champions having had a £100million bid accepted.

And SunSport understands that he could make his City debut as soon as Saturday’s Community Shield.

According to Sky Sports, Villa will ramp up their interest in Cantwell when Grealish’s move is confirmed.

The Norwich midfielder has one year remaining on his contract at Carrow Road, although the Canaries have an option to extend it by a further year.

Villa have not yet been in contact with Daniel Farke’s side over a move.

But they could open negotiations before the end of this week.

Norwich are reluctant to let Cantwell go so close to the opening day of the season.

But a significant bid could convince them to sell.

They are believed to have a cordial relationship with Villa, after negotiating the sale of Emi Buendia in June.

Buendia was joined by former favourite Ashley Young earlier in the window – while exciting Bayer Leverkusen winger Leon Bailey followed.

And Villa shocked fans by announcing the signing of Danny Ings from Southampton yesterday.
