Luka Modric was one of the best players Tottenham ever had on their books, and the Croatian’s continued success at Real Madrid shows just how good we had it before he left us.
Since he left, Spurs have struggled to replace him and although Christian Eriksen was also a success, he wasn’t at the level of Modric and we would do well to land a player like him at the moment.
With the transfer window close to being reopened again, Spurs will be handed a fresh chance to sign some top players in their quest to end their wait for a trophy, and Harry Redknapp has pointed to one player that can be their new Luka Modric.
The former Spurs boss reckons that the Lilywhites should target a move for Jack Grealish if they want to bring a player to their side as he is a player that would make them tick.
He told TalkSPORT: “Grealish for sure, that is what they lack.
“We had Luka Modric in there, Pochettino had Eriksen, people like that can make them play – people that can make them tick.
“They need to recruit a couple of players in the summer.”
Grealish is currently battling relegation with Aston Villa and if the Villans don’t survive, he will most likely be sold.
Grealish would be a great signing but he will not come cheap and the chances are that other clubs with deeper pockets and possibly Champions League football will also be interested in signing him.
