Earlier in the week, it was widely reported that Spurs had identified Swansea’s Ben Davies as their priority left back target and that the two clubs were negotiating over a £8m transfer. As the days passed however, it was claimed that Swansea were holding out for more money so if there is any truth in this story, we will soon see how determined Tottenham are to get their man.
With pre-season shortly to get underway, there have been no new arrivals at the Lane as yet but reports today suggest that Spurs are prepared to up their bid for Davies.
Swansea are said to be holding out for £12m for the player but with Tottenham looking at around £10m for the 21 year old, it’s thought that the Swans will be forced to accept. However, the loan of Gylfi Sigurdsson to the Liberty Stadium could yet form part of the deal.
Expect more news on this over the course of the weekend.
