Aston Villa want £35 million for Jack Grealish but Tottenham have only offered £20 million so far, according to the Mail.
Grealish emerged as a target for Spurs earlier this summer when Villa were struggling financially – the Premier League giants saw an opportunity to sign him on the cheap and made their move.
Since then new investors have pumped additional funds into Villa, and it is believed the Championship club no longer need to cash in on Grealish.
That doesn’t mean Spurs are close to completing a deal for Grealish, though, with Villa manager Steve Bruce claiming the Londoners are nowhere near meeting the midfielder’s valuation.
Those claims are backed up by the Mail, who report the clubs are currently £15 million apart in terms of Grealish’s asking price.
It seems likely Tottenham will need to increase their current £20 million offer to closer to £25 million if Grealish is to switch clubs by next Thursday.
