Tottenham Hotspur are interested in highly-rated Swansea City defender Joe Rodon, according to reports.

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.
