Tottenham Hotspur are determined to continue their summer spending spree.

After falling short of expectations last term it was tipped to be a difficult transfer window for the north London side.

Failing to qualify for the Champions League has a huge impact on the level of talent available to you, and that could have seen them fall even further behind their rivals.

Thankfully for Spurs it seems that they had nothing to worry about.

Early deals were wrapped up for Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Joe Hart and Matt Doherty - all deals that were solid in their own right.

But it was after that when the club really kicked on.

A double deal with Real Madrid was an absolute game-changer as they signed Sergio Reguilon and Gareth Bale from the Spanis giants, before completing a deal for Carlos Vinicius from Benfica.

The only deal that hasn't yet been completed is one for a defender.

Replacing Jan Vertonghen is a top priority for the club, but with the international transfer window now shut the club will have to look to the EFL for any potential signings.

One man who has been linked is Joe Rodon.

The Swansea City man has been hugely impressive in the Championship, and according to Stuart James of the Athletic he's a player who's being tipped to move to north London.

Taking to Twitter, James said: "Spurs are weighing up whether to make an offer for Joe Rodon, the Swansea & Wales central defender.

"No bid made but Swansea braced for one between now & 16 Oct.

"Swansea value Rodon at around £18m."

GIVEMESPORT'S Phil Spencer says...

This could be a very shrewd signing for Tottenham Hotspur.

Described as someone who is 'destined for the top', Joe Rodon is certainly a player with a real reputation in the Championship.

The central defender has played 54 times for Swansea City and has looked mightily impressive in that time.

A Wales international with four caps to his name, Rodon is a player who has the potential to be a decent player in the Premier League.

Moving to Spurs would be a huge move for the player, and whether he would secure regular first team football is up for debate.

But if he does make the move then it'll be very interesting to see how he gets on.
