Tottenham Hotspur will consider accepting a bid from Brighton for centre-back Joe Rodon this summer according to former Arsenal and Everton striker Kevin Campbell, speaking exclusively to Football Insider.
Spurs signed Rodon last summer from Swansea on a five-year deal for an initial fee of £11m plus add-ons.
The Welsh centre-half only made 12 appearances in the Premier League last season but impressed in the minutes that he did have. He also played every minute of Wales’ Euro 2020 campaign, where he was eventually knocked out by Denmark in the Round of 16.
Kevin Campbell said: “I’m pretty sure Spurs will consider it, if an offer came in, and sell him.
“It all depends what is happening with others as well because apparently, Alderweireld wants out. Can they afford to lose two or three of their current centre-halves? I’m not sure.
“Nuno will want to bring in a few of his own. He will be looking for a certain profile of centre-half because he likes to play three at the back.”
According to The Sun, Brighton may want to sign the Welsh international to replace Ben White, who appears to be heading to Arsenal. Graham Potter has previously worked with Rodon at Swansea so the pair have history.
The Athletic have reported that Toby Alderweireld has told Spurs that he is looking for a move this summer to end his six-year stay at the club.
Tottenham are also reportedly closing in on the signing of Takehiro Tomiyasu after agreeing on personal terms, according to Football Insider.
Joe Rodon is a player that deserves more minutes. He impressed in the majority of Premier League matches and even was a standout for Wales in Euro 2020.
Selling him, especially with Nuno’s three at the back system, doesn’t make much sense. He is a player that deserves to chance to become a first-team regular.
