Report: Nottingham Forest faces competition from Fulham, Wolves for Spurs’ £7M defender

By Eddie Razo -

Tottenham Hotspur defender Joe Rodon is one of the various players that the north London club wants to move on from this summer. After failing to move on from the 24-year-old during the January window, Spurs hope to have better success this time around. 

According to The Daily Record, there’s a market for Wales international as three Premier League clubs are expressing interest. Fulham, Wolverhampton Wanderers, and Nottingham Forest have their eyes on Rodon. 

Nottingham Forest needs a central defender as they hope to remain in the Premier League after next season and the Tottenham defender is atop their list of targets. 

Rodon is looking for a fresh start since he barely played last season, making only ten appearances for the north London side. Furthermore, with Wales now in the FIFA World Cup, he wants to head into the tournament into good playing form. 

When it comes to a possible price, Transfermarkt has Rodon’s value at £7-million.

Maybe loan him to another Premiership club and see how he gets on playing every week, then asses the situation after that and the World Cup…

£7 million??? … and the rest! He won’t be sold for a penny under £15 million.

Surely 10 million minimum for a home nation international… think Levy is possibly under valued him..😮

tbh despite his rugged feisty attitude, perversely never given a merited extended run in the side the lad has had a raw deal and wish him all the best elsewhere!

The valuation stated is nothing to do with Levy and for sure Levy is not going to take a loss on Rodon, if he is sold. I doubt we would accept anything less than £15 million.

I really hope he stays, if not I hope a top club comes in for him.

He has Dier in front of him currently as Conte sees he as the central player in the back 3. Though strangely when Dier was injured in January the lad didn’t play.
if he’s not going to be played he should be moved on.

Personally I would have dropped seemingly undroppable Dier and paired Rodon with Romero. Hey ho not to be!!

Right now Rodon’s 5th choice CB as he should be. He didn’t get much game time because Conte only rotates at the back when necessary. He played Carabao and Conference League and those comps ended badly.

Jose didn’t play him because he wasn’t Skriniar, whom he wanted. Nuno wasn’t around long enough and played 2 backs mostly, as did Jose.

So if Bastoni or someone else good comes in and Sanchez isn’t sold, with no injuries Rodon’s 6th choice. We need 6 backs for all the games. Tanganga can also play. If we get a reasonable bid he’ll probably be sold provided we add someone better. If not he stays. It doesn’t matter what Rodon wants or how much we paid for him.

At that price he is not worth selling loan him out to a PL club at 24 he is still young for a CB (how old were Jan & Toby at their peak 28/30?)

£7m would be a ridiculous bargain for the lad, he can do better than a relegation dog fight.

Does anyone remember what we paid for the lad? I’m sure it was significantly more than £7m

It was around £12m to £15m which Swansea were not happy about but needed the cash.

It’s a mystery why he never clicked with any of the recent managers.I think there is a player there and he has certainly never let Wales down.Very strange,I hope he does well after his move.

The one thing he does not do which coaches want is hitting 60yd ball s that land on a sixpence, but his defending is excellent.

It depends on what you read I suppose, but the initial fee was to rise to £15m.

There’s nothing wrong with Rodon. He’s just behind better players on the team.
