Tottenham are reportedly prepared to offer Swansea Cameron Carter-Vickers, in order to land target Joe Rodon. The Wales international has emerged as a potential option for Spurs as they eye defensive reinforcements and there is confidence a deal is possible before October 16.

Following the closure of the transfer window on Monday, Premier League clubs were given an additional 11 days to sign players from the Championship.

The likes of Joshua King, Said Benrahma and Ismaila Sarr are of interest to several Premier League sides with just one week to go.

Spurs have had a stellar summer in the transfer market and are looking to add the final piece of the jigsaw in the form of a centre-back.

While Rodon is not the finished article just yet, he has huge promise and potential which has enchanted Tottenham’s recruitment team.

Since then he has spent time on loan at Sheffield United, Ipswich, Swansea, Stoke and Luton.

Now he is ready to make his mark at senior level, however, he does not look ready to play for Spurs.

Swansea are in the market for a centre-back as it is and are keen on taking Carter-Vickers.

The Welsh outfit want £18million for Rodon but Spurs are only willing to pay around £7m.

They’ve spent big this summer securing deals for Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Joe Hart, Matt Doherty, Gareth Bale, Sergio Reguilon and Carlos Vinicius.

Tottenham had tried to sign Milan Skriniar from Inter Milan but the Serie A club were not prepared to compromise with Spurs over a fee.

According to former Tottenham striker Darren Bent, Rodon would be a shrewd addition to the squad if they can entice Swansea into a sale.

Bent told Football Insider: “When you think about it, it’s not really like Mourinho to go and get a youngster and try and coach them up to be a top centre-half.

“Listen, he’s looking around, he obviously likes his squad. I like the way they’re looking at the minute, they’re playing really well.

“They’re coming off the back of a huge result against Man United.

“For me, he would be a very shrewd signing if they were to go and get him.

“But at the same time, if they don’t get him I think they’ll be very happy with what they’ve done in the transfer market.”
