Tottenham are planning a move for Ben Godfrey.
British source claim that Tottenham are linked with a move for Norwich centre-back Ben Godfrey.
The 21-year-old has four years left on his current contract which expires in 2023.
Godfrey made 47 appearances across all competitions for Norwich, scoring 5 goals and supplying 2 assists in return.
The 21-year-old has been touted as one of the brightest young prospects in England.
Ben Godfrey has represented England at Under-20 and Under-21 level, winning 4 caps.
His performances have seen him become the target of many Premier League clubs including Tottenham.
Mauricio Pochettino wants to sign a new centre-back and Ben Godfrey is one of the names at the top of his wishlist.
The England international is thought to perfectly fit the profile of defensive player Pochettino wants to target in the winter transfer window.
According to Teamtalk, “Tottenham are reportedly ready to step up their bid to sign an impressive Premier League centre-back this summer. With continuing doubts over the long-term futures of experienced duo Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld in north London, Spurs are expected to be in the market for a new central defender next summer. However, a move could come sooner if the latest reports are to be believed. HITC claims that Mauricio Pochettino has stepped up his interest in landing highly-rated Norwich City star Ben Godfrey, who was also linked with Liverpool and Manchester United over the summer. The 21-year-old has had a superb start to the Premier League season with the newly-promoted Norwich and was handed the captain’s armband as England Under-21s beat Kosovo on Monday night. However, Spurs are likely to have to pay a premium for the Canaries star, given that he only recently signed a new deal at Carrow Road.”

Norwich are reluctant to let Ben Godfrey go, but a big enough bid could persuade them to sell.
Signing the 21-year-old would be a masterstroke from Pochettino.
