Manchester City have an 80 per cent chance of signing Harry Kane and Jack Grealish this summer, reckons former Everton and West Ham midfielder Don Hutchison. City are closing in on the signing of Aston Villa captain Grealish. The England international underwent a medical ahead of the £100million move to the Etihad on Thursday.
City will not stop there though and still want to sign Tottenham star Kane.
Kane is yet to return to Spurs following his post-Euro 2020 break.
The striker is keen on a move to City after telling Spurs he wanted to leave earlier this year.
Hutchison does not think the signing of Grealish alone would make a huge difference to City.

That’s why he thinks the chances of both players signing is high.
“Oh it’s got to be high hasn’t it? 80 per cent, got to be 80,” Hutchison told ESPN FC.
“I think [Kane and Grealish would make City unstoppable].
“If they solely got Jack Grealish, does it really change them? I don’t really think it does because the No 10s that they’ve got.

“They’re a brilliant side but if they get Harry Kane that’s a game-changer isn’t it.
“You’d like to think they’d be massive favourites for the Premier League and go one step closer to the Champions League.”
Earlier, Hutchison said a breakdown in relationship between Spurs chairman Daniel Levy and Kane will lead to the player’s exit.
He said: “In my opinion what I see now is I think there’s every chance Harry Kane makes the move.

“He’s going to fall out with Daniel Levy, there’s going to be an impasse, they’re not going to be happy with each other’s involvement in it.
“I think as long as Man City come up with the price, if they haven’t blown all that money on Jack Grealish, I still think it’s a certainty that he moves.”
Former Norway striker Jan Aage Fjortoft agrees the chances of Kane joining City are very high.
“If you see his record you see why Manchester City wants him,” Fjortoft told ESPN FC.
“If you see Manchester City’s record, you understand why Harry Kane wants to go to Manchester City.
“There’s not much time left for him to win titles and as we see Tottenham at the moment they won’t win titles this season either.
“He wants to go to Manchester City and believe me, this player will end up at Manchester City.”
