Aston Villa believe Jack Grealish is worth at least £100 million which leaves any interested clubs facing the prospect of having to make the England international the most expensive British player in history to stand a chance of signing him. Grealish has been in superb form for both Villa and England this season, and scored his fifth Premier League goal of the campaign in Monday night’s 2-1 defeat to West Ham United. The goal meant that, together with his five assists, only Tottenham Hotspur duo Harry Kane (16) and Heung-min Son (11) have been involved in more top-flight goals so far this season. Kane and Son are both valued at well over £100m by Spurs, while Borussia Dortmund wanted more than that figure from Manchester United for Jadon Sancho last summer. Villa had valued Grealish at around £70m after his first season back in the Premier League, but they did not receive a single serious bid for the 25 year-old and secured him to a new five-year contract. With the security of that deal, together with his elvatation into the England squad and the impact he is having on Premier League games, Villa now believe Grealish’s value has jumped up to at least £100m.
