Tottenham are readying a £13 million bid for Swansea City defender Joe Rodon, according to Football Insider.
On deadline day, we relayed a story from the Athletic revealing Spurs’ late interest in Rodon. The Londoners have until October 16 to make their move, with Premier League and EFL Clubs still able to do business with each other until then.
And now, Football Insider is reporting that Tottenham are ready to act on their interest with a £13 million bid. However, it is believed Swansea may ask for at least £15 million if they are to sell.
Football Insider believes Rodon could be loaned back to Swansea with an option to recall him in January, hinting this may be a way to bring his initial price down.
But that seems unlikely given Jose Mourinho probably wants a centre-back to come into the squad straight away, with Spurs competing on multiple fronts and in need of more bodies.
Rodon started for Wales against England on Thursday night and certainly didn’t embarrass himself despite a comfortable victory for Gareth Southgate’s men.
