Tottenham could have a winning edge in their pursuit of Swansea City stopper Joe Rodon. Leicester City have also shown an interest in the 22-year-old.
The Sun reports that Tottenham Hotspur have offered just £7 million for Swansea City central defender Joe Rodon, while Leicester City have made a bid of £20 million
With Rodon’s potential and the lack of alternatives available to Spurs now the international deadline has passed for the Premier League clubs, it is hard to see why Swansea would countenance an offer as low as £7m.
Bale and co may help persuade Rodon to drive down the asking price a little but Leicester’s interest will put a floor on any offer they will accept.
But the Daily Star says Gareth Bale and Ben Davies could play an important role in Rodon moving to north London. Davies who featured alongside Rodon for Wales in the loss to England on Thursday night is helping Tottenham engineer a move for his compatriot.
The international connection could be used to persuade Rodon to join Spurs.
Clubs have until Friday to sign players from the English Football League. It appeared to be seen where the versatile Welsh defender ended up playing.
