Tottenham Receive Boost In Their Pursuit Of Premier League Defender: Shrewd Choice By Ange?

Everton are reportedly open to selling Ben Godfrey in January amid firm interest from Tottenham Hotspur.

Spurs are in desperate need of defensive reinforcements following the injuries to Micky van den Ven and Eric Dier, leaving manager Ange Postecoglou with Cristian Romero as the only senior centre-back in the squad right now. As a result, Ange Postecoglou has prioritised the signing of a quality central defender in the New Year.

According to Football Insider, Tottenham are targeting a January swoop for Everton outcast Ben Godfrey.

Godfrey, 25, has fallen down the defensive pecking order at Goodison Park this season, managing just one Premier League appearance so far. Everton boss Sean Dyche has preferred the centre-back pairing of James Tarkowski and Jarrad Branthwaite, with Godfrey competing with Michael Keane to be third-choice. The English defender needs to play regularly at this stage of his career, and a potential move to Tottenham could be an exciting opportunity for him.

Ben Godfrey to Tottenham—Should Ange Postecoglou seal the deal?

Tottenham are already lacking in depth in the defensive department following injuries to Micky van den Ven and Eric Dier. In addition to being injured, Dier has been linked with a potential exit from the club during the January transfer window.

Spurs have started the 2023/24 season well under new boss Ange Postecoglou and will want to secure Champions League qualification. Signing a quality centre-back in the upcoming winter window is the need of the hour, and Postecoglou seems to have set his sights on Ben Godfrey, who is now deemed surplus to requirements at Everton.

Having been a bit-part player this campaign, the Toffees are willing to offload Godfrey off their books with just 18 months remaining on his contract. The 25-year-old needs a change of scenery to revive his career, and a move to Spurs could help. He would be a solid signing for the Lilywhites, potentially coming in as a like-for-like replacement for Dier, who could be offloaded in January. At 25, Godfrey is still light years behind reaching his peak and Postecoglou could help him reach the promise he showed in his early days at Norwich City.

The two-cap England international has the pace and physicality to thrive in Postecoglou’s high defensive line, whilst competing with the likes of Van den Ven and Romero. Godfrey certainly fits the profile of signings Postecoglou is looking to make and Spurs could immediately benefit from his qualities. Plus, regular football at Spurs could help Godfrey enjoy game time and get his career back on track.

Thus, Postecoglou should greenlight the deal to bring Ben Godfrey to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
