The lure of playing Champions League football may be enough to lure Ben Davies away from Spurs and into the clutches of Liverpool but it means little if his current club aren’t prepared to shift on their required transfer fee.
When the 21 year was first mentioned in connection with a switch to White Hart Lane, it was claimed that our £8m bid had been rejected by the Wales based Premiership side. There followed suggestions of a swap deal involving Gylfi Sigurdsson while elsewhere, it was thought that Swansea would accept £10m.
Today, it’s being widely reported that Liverpool, who had supposedly taken over from Spurs as front runners for Davies’ signature, have also had an £8m bid turned down. The defender still seems set to leave the Liberty Stadium but rather than it being guaranteed that the top four side will be first in line, it seems that it will just come down to the highest bidder.
