Liverpool fans have taken to social media site Twitter to express their reaction to reports linking the club to a move for Aston Villa playmaker Jack Grealish.
According to reports from The Mirror, Manchester clubs Manchester United and Manchester City could get close for Grealish in January.
Premier League champions Liverpool are also monitoring Grealish’s future.
Grealish, who was linked to a signing for United over the summer, has been in excellent shape this season.
He has taken his game to a whole new level and also made his debut for his country.
The 25-year-old has scored five goals and has already provided six assists for Villa in the Premier League, and signed a new five-year deal in September worth £ 130,000 a week.
United refused to meet its £ 80 million price tag for the summer. It is now valued at £ 100 million, but the report claims both Manchester clubs are set to test the water in January.
Liverpool are also showing interest in him, and many Reds fans have shared their thoughts on the transfer rumor on Twitter:

contracts mean nothing but more money. Andy Carroll signed a new contract with Newcastle and we signed it two months later.

I absolutely hated thinking about him last season. Mainly the antics of diving.
But. It is truly a gem! Shunned to United in January, he signed a new contract while Villa was in the relegation zone and absolutely improved.
He would be an AMAZING player in the LFC as creator number 10. Without a doubt.

Great player, it’s a shame that he spends most of his time on the ground and not standing up.

Really good player, but we can’t see ourselves paying more than £ 50 million for him…. Villa would like closer to £ 75 million

I would absolutely go for it. Thiago Alcántara and Grealish in midfield will be traps.

Grealish is a fantastic player and he would be a superb signing for the Reds.
However, it remains to be seen if the Reds need him. They have a lot of offensive midfielders on their squad and unless they send Mane or Salah their chances of signing Grealish are less.
Liverpool’s priority in the next window is to strengthen their defense with Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez injured. They may also look to sign a central midfielder next summer if Gini Wijnaldum leaves the club.
