Tottenham look forward to signing £18m-rated star before EFL transfer deadline

Tottenham are reportedly hopeful they can strike a deal for Swansea City defender Joe Rodon before the EFL transfer deadline.

Despite the transfer window closing on Monday evening, Premier League clubs and EFL teams can still do business until October 16.

This means Spurs could have hope of strengthening their defence, with Rodon now in their sights after they missed out on Inter Milan’s Milan Skriniar and Chelsea’s Antonio Rudiger, according to the Evening Standard.

Rodon is a promising young talent, with Swansea rating him at around £18million, a price Tottenham are currently unwilling to pay, according to the Standard.

It is suggested in the report that Spurs value the Wales international at closer to £7m, but it seems the north Londoners are optimistic an agreement can be struck in the coming days.

Rodon looks ready to make the step up to Premier League football, with the 22-year-old surely having a very bright future in the game.

Spurs need to improve their defence, so fans will hope their club can take this opportunity to get a late signing in.
