According to a report from Sky Sports, Aston Villa are not prepared to sell Jack Grealish this summer for anything under £80million.
The Daily Star reported back in April that Spurs were prepared to pay £50m to land the Villa star this summer.
However, now that they have retained their Premier League status, Sky Sports claim that the Villains are in no mood to let their talisman leave the club.
It is revealed that Dean Smith’s side want to hold on to Grealish as they look to establish themselves in the top-flight.
The club are said to be confident that the midfielder will be an important member of the Three Lions squad for the Euros next summer if he has another season of regular football at Villa Park.
It is also suggested that Manchester United are now unlikely to move for the 24-year-old this summer as the Red Devils are prioritising a move for Jadon Sancho.
Arsenal have also enquired about Grealish but there are doubts expressed over whether Spurs’ North London rivals are in the financial position to meet Villa’s valuation.

I suspect that Aston Villa will sell Grealish if they receive a £60-£65m offer this summer as the midfielder seems intent on leaving. Had Mauricio Pochettino still been in charge, I would have been all for cashing in on Ndombele and using the funds to get Grealish. However, I am not so sure the 24-year-old will suit the kind of counter-attacking style we are favouring at the moment. Grealish needs to move to a possession-based team as he has the tendency to play the game at his own pace, a bit like Mousa Dembele.
