Tottenham Hotspur continue Rodon pursuit

Spurs are in the market for a new centre back, and after a move for Inter Milan player Milan Skriniar didn’t come off, attentions have now turned to the Wales international.

The 22-year-old has impressed for Swansea since his debut in 2018, and his attributes have been likened to former Manchester United and England defender Rio Ferdinand.

With West Ham and Leicester also interested, Spurs are poised to strike up a deal with Swansea for Rodon’s services.

However, asking price may be a sticking point, with Swansea wanting £20m for the defender.

With just 50 Championship appearances under his belt, Tottenham may view this as a steep price considering Wolves man Matt Doherty – one of the most creative Premier League defenders – only cost them £13m earlier in the window.

Furthermore, Real Madrid full back Sergio Reguilon only set back Daniel Levy £28m, so on that basis the fee for Rodon may well be negotiated ahead of the transfer deadline on October 16th.

Sheffield United eyeing Bayern Munich striker

That’s according to the Guardian newspaper, who write that Blades boss Chris Wilder is keen to land the highly-rated 19-year-old to bolster his attacking options.

Not much is known about Dajaku as he is yet to establish himself in the Bayern first team – he has however played age group level for Germany and netted more than 40 times at youth level.

Understandably it will be difficult for the striker to break in to the squad of the recently-crowned European champions, who already have the formidable Robert Lewandowski to call upon.

Dajaku then may be tempted in to plying his trade abroad – and where better than the Premier League.

Sheffield United were solid at the back for the most part last season, but it is at the top end of the pitch where the question marks lie.

With concerns over the Blades’ firepower, Dajaku may well be an astute addition if he does arrive at Bramall Lane.

Chris Wilder will have to fend off reported interest from Swansea City, however, to secure the teenager’s services.
