Tottenham Hotspur will face stiff competition from AC Milan and Bayer Leverkusen for Norwich City defender Ben Godfrey, according to Sky Sports.
The Sun claimed Spurs were one of several sides interested in the England U21 international in July.
Godfrey featured 30 times for Daniel Farke’s side in the Premier League, although their return to the English top flight ended in relegation.
The 22-year-old is now a key target for the Bundesliga club, who are expected to step up their efforts to sign him this summer once Kai Havertz completes his expected move to Chelsea.
Recent reports revealed his representatives met with AC Milan officials before the Rossoneri ran riot over Cagliari at the weekend.
While the centre-back failed to keep the Canaries up, he has still done enough to catch the eye of a number of European clubs, including Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig.
Jose Mourinho needs to find a replacement for Jan Vertonghen, who left north London last month, and Godfrey could be the long-term solution to the problem.
However, Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has his work cut out, as Norwich are confident he can become a fully-fledged international, and want at least £30m for the former York City academy graduate as a result.
Levy could find himself embroiled in a bidding war if he’s not too careful as there seems to be so much interest in the defender. He won’t come cheap with three years remaining on his current contract. The Canaries are reluctant to sell one of their best players but could be forced to change their minds if they receive the right offer.
Tottenham fans, do you think Levy should sign Godfrey this summer? Let us know down below!
