The Aston Villa captain enjoyed a sensational season in England’s top flight, scoring six goals and providing 10 assists for his team-mates in 24 starts.
He has been handed the famous No. 7 shirt for England at the postponed Euros this summer and has been tipped to move on to one of the Premier League’s elite clubs after the tournament.
However, Agbonlahor – who spent his entire playing career at Villa Park – has been told that Grealish won’t be taking the plunge and will instead stay in Birmingham, with Dean Smith’s side investing in the squad again.
‘Jack Grealish will stay, is what I’m hearing, and Villa will invest as well,’ Agbonlahor told talkSPORT Breakfast.
‘Who can afford him? If Aston Villa were going to sell him they’d want over £100m.
‘And do Man City need him? They’ve already got the likes of [Phil] Foden, [Kevin] De Bruyne and [Ilkay] Gundogan. They’re looking for a striker as well, so are they going to spend £100m [on Grealish]?
‘Man City and Man United are the only ones that would go for him in the Premier League, but with COVID are these teams going to want to pay £100m or £130m? I’m not too sure.’
Villa are reported to be locked in a battle with Arsenal to sign Emi Buendia from Norwich to supplement Grealish’s talents.
