Swansea City Accept Tottenham Bid for Liverpool Target Ben Davies

Those pesky Spurs…

It looks like we may have a bidding war brewing amid reports that Swansea City have accepted an offer of £10mil for Liverpool target Ben Davies with the Reds mooting upping their offer for the promising fullback.

The Anfield outfit had an initial offer of £8mil rebuffed by the Welsh side late yesterday. Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is known to be looking at alternate options after a deal for Sevilla defender Alberto Moreno collapsed with the two sides unable to negotiate a suitable price for the Spaniard. The Northern Irishman is a known admirer of Davies and has reportedly put him above Chelsea’s Ryan Bertrand on his fullback shopping list, but this latest twist may see him miss out on an important target.

Much like Rodgers, new Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is looking to shore up the defence and sees the Swansea youngster as the perfect starting point. Although they now have a deal in principal in place after the fee was accepted by the Jacks, it’s believed that Davies is aware of Liverpool’s interest and will speak with the club if and when they match the bid.

After shipping an ungodly amount of goals last season, Rodgers is attempting to take steps to rectify the problem and another bid for the promising youngster — who impressed in his 34 league appearances for the Swans last season — could very well be forthcoming. In the meantime, the 21-year old has been pulled from Gary Monk’s squad that’s set to face Liga MX side Chivas Guadalajara in America later today.

    I think we need to be trying to get Ricardo Rodríguez even if we have to bay 40m for him. Because the way we play Full Backs are really important.
