Speaking to Football Insider, former Tottenham midfielder Michael Brown has tipped the club to go for Swansea City defender Joe Rodon as a ‘typical’ signing whilst also lavishing praise on Spurs manager Jose Mourinho.
After a summer of numerous marquee deals, with six new additions in total coming through the door at Hotspur Way, Brown has waxed lyrical over the ‘very exciting’ business being done and has tipped Spurs to bring in a seventh new player before Friday’s transfer deadline.
Rodon still on Spurs’ radar
Rodon, who emerged as a target in the final hours of deadline day, was reportedly ‘close’ to a Tottenham move according to Sky Sports, but journalist Alasdair Gold has claimed they are still in talks.
Football Insider echoed this report, stating Daniel Levy submitted a fresh £13m bid for the 22-year-old earlier this week.
Tottenham have already signed Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Joe Hart, Matt Doherty, Sergio Reguilon and Carlos Vinicius whilst securing the return of club icon Gareth Bale on loan.
According to these recent reports, the 6 foot 4 (1.93m) Swansea powerhouse could be set to join them before the domestic transfer deadline on Friday.
Brown very excited about Rodon
Brown has issued his take on these developments, claiming the Welshman could be a ‘typical’ Lilywhites signing who Mourinho can mould into a world-class asset.
“I think it’s very exciting with all the signings coming in,” the 43-year-old explained to Football Insider.
“I think anybody can be moulded by Jose Mourinho, he’s got that special talent that we’ve seen. He says he’s the special one, as we know.
“He’s a very experienced manager, someone you’d want to play for and it’s a typical sort of Spurs signing, isn’t it?”
Transfer Tavern take
A regular for the Swans last term, Rodon has already displayed his consistency at Championship level; and at good value for money (£15m and upwards), he could be a noteworthy signing if Spurs get him.
