Tottenham Hotspur have had a £10million bid accepted for Swansea defender Ben Davies, according to reports.

The 21-year-old is being pursued by Liverpool, who had an £8 million offer rejected earlier this week for the left-back.

The Welshman enjoyed a great season at Swansea in the last campaign and has therefore been identified as one of Mauricio Pochettino’s primary targets for this summer. And, The Daily Mirror claims they are closing on the signing, having agreed a fee.

Other interest

Although Liverpool are in desperate need for a top left-back, it seems Premier League rivals Spurs are winning the race for the 21-year-old.

The Daily Telegraph reports that Brendan Rodgers is prepared to go in again having heard of Spurs' interest, but it could be too late as the club from north London close in on his signature.

Despite the speculation, Davies played 45 minutes for Garry Monk's side in a draw with Chivas Guadalajara on Wednesday night.


Danny Rose kept hold of the left-back position for the majority of last season at Tottenham Hotspur, but doesn't seem to be the preferred option for a team pushing for Champions League football.

And, in my own opinion, Ben Davies is showing a lot more progress than Rose despite being three years younger than the former England under 21 defender.

As well as his obvious defensive qualities, Davies also can pose a threat going forward, creating 31 chances for his team-mates and three of those leading to goals.

Davies also made no errors leading to goals, one less than Danny Rose, who played almost 1000 minutes less than the current Swansea man.
