"I can't keep our players, but I'm working with them to get them to a United or an Arsenal," said Holloway. "If we are not successful this year Tom may get there before I can, so do I want to stand in his way? Probably not.
"But we deserve a fair amount of money for him."
Holloway has also insisted that Ince is better than Arsenal duo Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Theo Walcott.
"I don't think Oxlade-Chamberlain and Walcott are better than him. If Arsenal had bought him, he would be playing for England now."
Ince has been included in the England Under-21 squad for the playoff fixtures against Serbia.
