Tottenham are in talks with Aston Villa to sign Jack Grealish this summer, according to reports in the British media.

Sky Sports is reporting that the north London side are keen on a deal to bring the 22-year-old to White Hart Lane this summer as they look to strengthen their squad ahead of next season.

Spurs are thought to be negotiating on the price for the midfielder, who is valued at £30m-£40m by Aston Villa, according to the same report.

Villa are likely to have to sell Grealish this summer due to their financial struggles after they failed to gain promotion to the Premier League last season.

Tottenham, who are set to move into their new stadium next season, are yet to make a single signing this summer as Mauricio Pochettino looks to assemble a squad at least capable of challenging for the Premier League title next term.

The Lilywhites ended up in third place in the Premier League table last season and without a trophy after they were beaten by Manchester United in the FA Cup semi-finals.

Grealish scored three times in 30 Championship games for Aston Villa last season but he could not help them to gain promotion back to the Premier League.
