Brighton want Tottenham defender Joe Rodon

Joe Rodon

Brighton & Hove Albion are considering making a move for Tottenham Hotspur defender Joe Rodon this summer, according to The Sun,

Rodon, who joined Spurs last summer from Swansea City, made only 14 appearances last season across all competitions.

He did impress in whatever little opportunities he got, with former Spurs manager Jose Mourinho suggesting that Rodon has the potential to get even better.

The report claims that Brighton are also considering a move for Manchester United winger Dan James.

Rodon was a key man for the Swans despite an injury-hit period at the club. Ideally, Brighton would want to sign the players permanently, but Potter would willingly take the pair on loan.

The report adds that Rodon is seen as the “perfect replacement” if Ben White is sold. White has been reportedly chased by Arsenal this summer.

The Gunners have had an opening bid rejected, with Brighton holding out for around £50 million for the England international.

Arsenal have submitted a second bid for White, and it has been widely reported that they feel it should be enough to clinch the deal for the 23-year-old defender.

Everton, who appointed Rafael Benitez as their new manager earlier this week, want to sign White as well, and they have joined the race, proposing an even better offer.

Spurs are looking to sign at least two defenders this summer, and they would be tempted to offload Rodon on loan if they manage to land their targets.
