Dean Smith views the 25-year-old as a key part of his plans for next season, with the Birmingham club eager to crack the top-six of the Premier League.

Whilst the Daily Mail report that the club are keen on Bayer Leverkusen star Leon Bailey.

Indeed, retaining Grealish will be a huge coup for Villa’s long-term plans. Smith and the club’s owners are keen to take the Villa Park side to the next level of English football.

Grealish’s Euro 2020 performances proved that the attacker is one of Europe’s top creative talents.

Although offering the 25-year-old £200,000-a-week will be a massive financial risk for Villa, it will be a decision that will all but pay off if the playmaker can push his boyhood club to the top of the Premier league.
