Man United have been handed a major boost in their pursuit of Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish as Arsenal are set to drop their interest after being advised to do so.

Should the North London outfit harken to the advice by former Liverpool, Chelsea defender Glen Johnson, they will no longer submit a bid for the Aston Villa Captain.

Jack Grealish seems available in this summer transfer window after helping his team avoid relegation. He is now set for a new challenge after learning of the interests available for his signature.

Man United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is reported to have made the midfielder a priority for the summer transfer window but they face a major challenge from Arsenal who also indicated interest along the way.

But with the latest development, the Gunners might be seen dropping their interest in the midfielder for other options in the summer transfer window.

Glean Johnson stated that Jack Grealish would be a mistake for Arsenal, stressing that the North London outfit will have to go for players who are more established in the Premier League and have a better understanding of it.

He, therefore, emphasized that the best of the signings for the Gunners will come from the Premier League.
